4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

I love that my professors are so supportive. They offer constructive criticisms to make you better at your profession as a student and in corporate world. The courses are very challenging and interacting with your classmates offer diversified insights that you normally do not consider under the stress or writing. I do believe that I am getting a quality education and that I am challenged in every course. The program is quite demanding, but anything of quality requires a lot of attention.

Great place to get experiences in healthcare and policy, but the program itself lacks diversity in faculty and students.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

Above all, BU's School of Education has exposed me to a faculty and staff that are caring and accessible. I've been able to work directly with several mentors who have modeled what it means to connect theory to practice.

2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

It is very expensive to live in Boston. This graduate program is very time-consuming leaving little to no time to maintain a job, so it is necessary to rely on loans. Unfortunately, the profession of social work is not well-paid, so paying off student debt will be challenging. However, my personal experience in this program, with the professors, other students, and field work has surpassed any of my expectations in the greatest way possible. I feel that after I complete the program, I will, indeed, be well-prepared to be a licensed social worker. The main issue that has presented itself to both myself and my peers has been the lack of diversity amongst the students. As well, there were not nearly enough discussions regarding diversity/race/etc. at the beginning of the program; these conversations have not yet occurred until the second semester at the urging of the students. Overall, there are certainly areas needing improvement with my program, but I am very happy and grateful to be in it.
