Wayne State University Graduate Reviews

45 reviews
In my experience Wayne State has been a great school to attend! I am in the Audiology program and have no complaints thus far. Wayne state has provided me with all the resources, and then some, that I need to succeed. We have a partnership with Henry Ford Hospital which works really well because Wayne State handles the academic side of our program and Henry Ford oversees the clinical portion and some academic classes of our graduate school program. The professionalism from my Wayne State supervisors has been exceptional and I have come a long way in my ability to communicate in a professional manner because of them. I would highly suggest Wayne State and Detroit for anyone considering a graduate program.

The classes and teachers were great except for one. When this teacher clearly wasn't grading fairly, etc. The class has a whole complained and nothing could be done! Just disappointing you pay so much in tuition and spend so many hours studying, complaints should be taken seriously especially when it was literally the entire class. Also interning was difficult. The intern supervisors never honored placement preferences. But when I explained the placement I was given didn't match what I had requested it was figured out. It was hard working full time and earning my Master's full time. But overall I'm happy I went with Wayne State!
The coursework was engaging and topical. There were always lively discussion that took place, and lots of courses were offered, making it difficult to choose!
