Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

The urban environment, the network of legal and financial alumni practitioners in Boston, and a deep faculty make BU Law a worthy of a prospective student's consideration.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

It's an excellent program, rigorous and highly demanding. However, it is not cheap and living in Boston is indeed expensive.

Degree: Physics

The research is exciting. High living cost but the stipend covers it.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

I've been very happy with my time at BU. The school really takes care of its students and listens to what they want, then produces it.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

The EdM in curriculum and instruction at Boston University is superb. I am teaching full time and taking the master's classes at night. So far it has been a tremendous boost to my classroom performance. Additionally, my professors have been very accommodating of my workload (1st year teacher AND master's student). The professors are knowledgeable, helpful, and relaxed. Though they demand high quality work, they are more than willing to help you improve if you fall below standards. I had one professor that was also teaching full time. He was great! He helped me look at the units I was planning for my class and made sure I could apply each assignment for his class to my high school classroom.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Unfortunately, AJain2 kinda nailed it when he wrote: "My Department and university administrators are actually obstructive to my progress in my program and in my career. They actively disincentivize higher achievement, provide no guidance towards opportunities to build on our research, and are generally incompetent. Furthermore, they provide no meaningful summer opportunities, and have bizarre, inconsistent, opaque practices about research opportunities, teaching assignments and financial aid."

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

Great program, knowledgeable faculty who are always willing to help; great use of technology integrated into learning system. Public transportation can sometimes be difficult getting to classes.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2013

The Economics Master Program at BU isn't worth the money. There are good professors, but others are really ridiculous. Graduates aren't very competitive in the job market. Think twice if you are considering going to BU for the Economics Master Program.
