I just graduated from this progam. It is a nothing degree, and a huge mistake. The UND space studies program is basically a tool to generate revenue from distance students in order to fund pet projects of a few professors and even fewer actual space studies campus students. The place is so cold and isolated, nobody in their right mind would live there, I had to make several trips up there. The faculty is trapped in group-think, and it is obvious none of them want to be there. the online students do the most work and put in the most effort, but are basically treated like a customer at a fast food drive-through restaurant. The advisors and professors play favorites with the few (15-20) actual campus students, and have minimal contact with distance folks. I got straight A's, spent a ton of money, two years of my life, and got zero advice, employment recommendations or useful training. This program was a huge disappointment for me, and even professors that I admired and liked simply refused to even address any problems or concerns I had. Take my advice and DONT DO IT. The diploma is a generic master of science, with no specific discipline. What is worse is that the student is never told this, I was told my diploma would have a specific discipline for my field of study, but I was lied to. It is absolutely worthless.
