University of Montana Reviews
Rating 4.13 out of 5 24 reviews
Nothing is assigned without good reason. They give us the full spectrum of learning and leave it up to us how much we choose to engage.
I really love my program in the Social Work dept. The professors are wonderful, my colleagues are supportive, and we are pushed emotionally and mentally. The only thing I would improve is the communication.
Even during this crazy pandemic, the university is making a way to have valuable learning. The staff in my department is especially flexible.
So far, the coursework I've had is stimulating, entertaining, and relevant to the future I'm creating. I feel challenged enough.
Missoula is an amazing place!!! You can't beat the wilderness, and Missoula summers are perfect. I enjoyed small class sizes and really being able to connect with my professors. You can tell the University of Montana isn't the wealthiest university, and things could be updated, but more people just need to come see the beauty of this university!
I think the online mph program has been a great experience for giving me a well rounded look at the field of public health.
The course work was engaging and I never felt like I was doing work just to do it. The program offered a wide variety of classes.
The coursework in my major is very focused around making you a successful scientiat, from writing grants to writing papers to the methods behind the data.
The teachers have time to spend on their students, there are good opportunities for graduate students, however I have had a difficult time with management and overall organization of the program I'm in.
The professors here are brilliant, and I enjoyed their seminars. If you're looking for a school with talented professors, engaged students, and a vibrant community, this is it.
Good overall. Graduate stipend is lower than most schools, but I knew that going in. My expectations have been met overall.
I would like to see more outlets for older, nontraditional students like myself. Offer more support groups.
So far the MBA program is average. A lot of this is online and the method of instructions is average. I have not been impressed with the feedback from the instructors yet, but I hear that improves with the program. There have been two instructors that have been an extreme challenge to learn from in the accounting sections. He does not stay on point and is easily distracted. Time management is not a strong suit and this is a challenge to me as I am a taking this MBA program full time while I am also teaching at the University and a father of 3. Time and mental energy are my most valuable resource and so far the MBA program is waisting those assets.
Overall, I have loved the University of Montana! I am so glad that I chose to come here. The campus is beautiful and they really encourage diversity and opinions of all kinds. I suppose the only reason I didn't give it 5 starts is because my particular department seems to be a little disorganized.
Excited to start. Campus is beautiful. Missoula is a great town. I think that most people enjoy the school as long as you don't mind the cold winters.
The University of Montana will constantly surprise you. I bet you didn't know that the leading researchers in carnivore ecology, sexual selection theory, avian aerodynamics, and the physiology of bird flight all hail from U of M. Faculty here at UM are some of the world's leading researchers in their fields. In Montana, of all places!!! In spite of that, it is still Montana, so it comes with its own suite of issues. If you're gay, lesbian or trans, you can expect to be mistreated here. If you're female, a POC, or non-Christian, you shouldn't be surprised when you get assaulted. So unless you're a white male, I would choose a different university.
I attended UM as a graduate student in the English department. I received a 1-year TAship and am grateful to the university for the free tuition and the stipend while I taught Writing 101. The English professors at UM were quite good when I attended. However, the facilities of the Humanities building left a lot to be desired. Both the university and the Missoula area are overly passionate about the football program at UM, though it would be nice to see more money and devotion put toward the arts.
