A very poor graduate level economics department overallJun 10 2014Economics
A very poor graduate level economics department overall. Hard to get into the classes you need and M.S. program director is incompetent and not helpful. Don't expect any experience with the administration or faculty to be pleasant. They provide you with no help and make trying to accomplish the simplest task difficult. If you wish to graduate in a timely manner and not waste your money I suggest you go elsewhere.
I earned and completed my bachelor's degree atNov 11 2009Psychology
I earned and completed my bachelor's degree at Murray State, and then returned the following semester to begin work on my master's degree. (Murray State has no doctoral programs.) The faculty and staff are friendly and willing to help and advise the students. Sure, Murray is a small town, but the university provides a lot of entertainment and activities for students to get involved in. We have had big artists like Maroon 5, Jason Aldean, Ben Folds, John Mayer, Larry the Cable Guy, Jars of Clay, Casting Crowns, Kansas, and .38 Special just since I've been here, plus a lot more. I have loved my time at Murray State, and I'm glad that I was able to stay here and study for a master's degree as well.
