The program I took was excellent, professors were well trained and knowledgable. The courses I took at the University of Arkansas helped me improve the way I used to see the world and be more critical in my studies and; besides all that, my personal growth has created a positive impact on my social and professional relationships.
Experience was very good, although the diversity of elective courses was lacking.
I think it is a great university with an amazing support system for all international students.
