Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

Boston University has a reputable Computer Information System program. It's convenient because it is delivered completely online and classes are 7 weeks long. The curriculum is solid and provides many concentration options to explore and choose from.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2018

Boston University Online is an excellent program. The seven-week intensive courses online are engaging, instructional, and empowering. Only a semester in the program I have already begun to apply what I have learned in my professional teaching practice. Boston University was highly recommended to me by a friend and alum of the same Art Educators MFA program, I highly recommend it myself to any art educator looking to advance their teaching practice.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

The M.S. in Television Master's Program at Boston University's College of Communications has been an exceptional learning experience, so far. The professors are all currently, or have previously work professionally in the field, so have real-world anecdotes to augment the practical information and skills we're learning. The quick pace of the program (3 semesters) ensures that we'll be off and running as soon as possible.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty in the BMFS program are incredibly unorganized. It seems like they do not communicate with each other. They also say they have a biology track and a chemistry track, but they really only have a biology track. There are not enough faculty members to help out with the chemistry track so those students get kicked to the dust when trying to do a thesis or take the track exam. This program overall has been very disappointing and really should be re-evaluated by FEPAC for accreditation.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

The Boston University Medical School Graduate Medical Sciences Biomedical Forensic Sciences program is an excellent program for further education in the field of forensic sciences. As a native Massachusetts resident and undergraduate forensic science student, I was looking for something close to home that would provide me with all of the forensic science program benefits that other accredited programs in the country provide. The program is FEPAC accredited and provided me with numerous opportunities. The coursework entailed a range of subjects from forensic biology and pathology to chemistry. I was able to concentrate in forensic toxicology in addition to obtaining a degree in the forensic sciences participating in intriguing courses such as forensic toxicology and controlled substances. Other students choosing to take the biology/DNA route were also able take courses concentrating in their particular field of interest. The program is small, which was conducive to my learning style but, more importantly, it enabled me to develop close relationships with my professors. I felt comfortable going to them for academic questions and career advice. They were also able to provide me with great recommendations since we developed relationships that enabled them to truly understand who I was a student, person, and forensic scientist candidate. The BMFS program had a continuous amount of networking opportunities ranging from individuals in the forensic science field coming in to present to and talk with the students to conferences and the opportunity to present student performed research at those conferences. The thesis requirement associated with this program enabled further opportunities as I was able to submit my work to a toxicology journal for a published paper, for example. The BMFS program gave the education I was looking for while providing me with endless opportunities for networking and building me to be the ideal candidate for the forensic science employment I desired.

The Boston University Questrom MBA has been instrumental in my work. I am able to utilize the excellent concepts taught by distinguished faculty in my day to day work. The courses have given me a broadened perspective on the challenges faced at a managerial level.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Boston University is a great school and the Masters of Social Work program is ranked one of the best in the country for a reason. The program is very rigorous, but it is worth it for the amount of clinical material/ experience you will receive throughout your education. The field department is also very helpful in getting you clinical field education that fits your goals for your future career. Highly recommend

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2018

The BU School of Education is a strong program. Many of the faculty and instructors have been deeply invested in the field of education both as practitioners and academics. This provides a healthy balance of theory and practice. My time in this program has been well spent, as I have learned a tremendous amount from my professors and feel 100% supported as an educator.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

BU's School of Public Health offers a great graduate program that helps to prepare you for a career in public health. The certificate system allows for you to gain multiple sets of skills, and able to handle real world issues. Every class I've taken at this school has in some way held value for me, even if it did not particularly contribute to my concentration. There's always something to learn that is interesting and relevant to health care today. The epidemiology and biostatistics programs in particular help you to develop concrete skills in research and data analysis.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2020

I believe that experiencing diversity prepares students for work in todays global society and Boston University gives you that exposure. BU's emphasis on service learning gives you the skills and knowledge to serve underserved populations. Moreover, BU's state of the art facilities and quality of faculty are truly exceptional.
