Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I like being able to work on my own time. I dislike being in a different time zone and so juggling trying to stay connected with professors and other students is difficult.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The program lives up to its name in that the faculty is well-informed and invested in student success and the curriculum prepares you for future practice. Due to both the location and involvement of coordinators, internships are exceedingly valuable and generally at well-respected institutions. Cons are that living in Boston is very expensive, and that many students have found it difficult to balance school, work, and a social life.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The political science department is in a rebuilding phase. So, lots of changes are being made in terms of faculty and curriculum. These changes are definitely for the better and from what I have experienced are really pushing the program in the right direction. In five years, I think this program will be highly competitive with others, but currently it still has some work to do - especially in terms of preparing students methodological skills and networking skills.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Because it's a small program, it is extremely flexible and you can tailor the program to suit your needs. However, it can be somewhat limited because of its size. For a motivated student, this is not a problem, but you need to know what you want. Connectivity to other schools in the area means that you are not limited to only what is available on campus.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: My program is specifically in clinical nutrition, which is the area I want to be in after graduating. This includes a practicum and dietetic internship that will allow me to gain the experience necessary for after graduation. Cons: My first year includes classes in a wide array of subjects.
