Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

The Boston University School of Music Masters of Music Program is incredibly competitive, enjoyable, and inspirational. As young artists in the opera world, we have the chance to work with renowned full time faculty, world-known directors and performers in the field, and promising colleagues. Not only do you have the opportunity to pursue your passion through wonderful programs and high-level productions, you experience all that comes with a conservatory while still being part of a high-level university in one of the most wonderful cities in the world. The cons of the BU Masters of Music Program is the fact that they have very limited funds. For this reason, although they are able to attract high-level performers, the high quality of life those students desire is hard to achieve.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

It is very great program from which I can really learn a lot, and the school provides us abundant academic resources. But the workload is too heavy and the rating is very strict.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2017

As someone working full time and determined to earn a graduate degree the program at Boston University was perfect. I have been able to complete the coursework online and had access to my professors and classmates through discussion boards and live classroom meetings.

Degree: Communications

I appreciate that the program is centered on career development. Some of the classes feel like they are at an undergraduate level, though.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

Excellent program with professors that are genuinely concerned for their students. Any questions or concerns are addessed immediately by faculty or advisors. Courses are not inexpensive and housing costs are steep.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I recently began my journey towards a Master's Degree at Boston University's MET College studying Computer Information Science. As a graduate from Virginia Tech's computer science department, I was searching for a way to continue my education without having to quit my job and relocate. Boston University has provided me this opportunity. The online classes are well structured and easy to follow, and the professors are engaged and quick to respond. The coursework is a little heavy, but not overly so. I am able to complete my assignments on time each week with dealing with my projects at work, and I still have time to maintain and social life on the weekends. Additionally, the live online lectures really helps expands the content in the textbook. The seven-week layout of the courses was a little daunting at first. But after my first class, I actually found myself preferring it over the standard 14-week semester. It condenses the class a lot, but it doesn't hinder the ability to learn or retain the information. Overall, I am very pleased with my education at Boston University so far and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to continue their education.
