| I LOVE MSU! It is a beautiful campus and my professors are wonderful. I'm a country-girl at heart so I love the beautiful landscape. It is a perfect place for someone seeking a quality education and perhaps time to meditate. I get emails every day about different events going on in school. Montclair is a beautiful city, the perfect place to settle down. Overall, I love my school. I went to NYU for a semester and it was too expensive so I switched to MSU and wouldn't trade this school for any other - not even NYU. MSU is an great place to get a quality education. |

| The Political Science and Law Department at Montclair State University has some wonderful Professors and Adjunct Professors. The new Department Chair Professor LeClair is wonderful, understanding, and accommodating to students. I had an genuine issue and we resolve it together. If he stays as the Department Chair this is going to be the best place to go to school! He took over for the previous Chair. |
The department needs more awesome professors, especially on global issues, economic issues and international stuff. Some of the faculty need to be engaged with new developments and trends in political science, and one person well... avoid her classes. I have had two adjunct professors who were the best professors I have ever had, and the majority of the faculty are really smart, taught me a lot, and are really helpful. When you get accepted take some time to learn about the faculty and who you should be taking classes with. You will find a good amount of the faculty super helpful. Just be careful of a few bad apples so they don't spoil the bunch. I am majoring in Political Science and Jurisprudence, graduating in 2013. I've taken the most of the professors and if you get the chance take a classes with these Professors: Wishnick (especially Chinese/Asian classes), LeClair (law classes), Drake or Segall (mostly law classes), Nyiri (he's new but really good and smart), Harrison (American Politics), Spanakos (political theory classes), Floropoulus (international relations, law), Tayler (really intense but you will learn a lot).

| Montclair state is a good school. |
Most of the complaints seem to be about the social life. I grew up locally and worked about 30 hours a week during college. Lived with friends in a house in Clifton. So I cant really say much on the subject. Academically, the school was very good. Most of the professors were top notch. And it definitely has a good "brand" with prospective employers, at least in NJ. Its a name they know.
