The experience that I have had thus far at Harvard Graduate School of Education has been incredible. Highlights so far have been the availability of Professor's, the community of learners who I am surrounded by, and the message of inclusively that is being both talked about and acted upon consistently. I recommend this program to anyone considering a Master's in Education and look very forward to next semester!

overall a good short term program as an introduction to a new field that holds much promise. But need to be very proactive to seek out resources in this environment as it is so diverse.

This program has been a wonderful learning opportunity. The quality of the faculty is very high and the university's resources are a big plus. The student body is among the best things of the program, you get to know people from different backgrounds and areas of expertise.

The professors are incredibly impressive but also very humble and approachable. The caliber of my fellow students is extremely high and it's exciting to take classes alongside them. My only cons for the program are finance-related. Boston/Cambridge is an expensive place to live and HGSE doesn't have enough financial aid to go around.

Pros: High caliber faculty and students, great career services and resources, flexible course choices (can enroll in any Harvard course or cross-register at MIT and in one school at Tufts), flexible program (only 3 required areas-can build own program) Cons: Living in Boston/Cambridge is expensive! Financial aid does not necessarily cover difference between EFC and cost of attendance, even with loans included-expect to fill gap from outside sources.

Professors are very brilliant and passionate about what they teach. The learning atmosphere there is one of a kind. The student-professor combination makes for great learning and discussions. The only con I can think of was that too many students wanted to participate in discussions.

The graduate school of education is a phenomenal school that really works towards helping students make connections and understand theories as they apply to real life. The majority of the programs require internships and the university works hard to match students with appropriate and useful supervisors and supports this process throughout the academic year. Te level of work is basically what students choose to do, there are ample opportunities to further one's learning and do extra reading or you can still get a lot out of even the required classes. There are a number of extracurricular events that student's can become involved in and there is ample freedom to design one's own cause and this is always supported by faculty and administration.
