Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2013

While great for working professionals, I honestly thought my program was part of a degree mill. If you need a MS to advance your career, this could be a good option for you - but only if your employer is paying for most of it.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I completed BU's master's distance learning program for social work. I got a very good quality education, but was able to do so with the "perks" of online study- flexible class schedules, and able to work a full-time job.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2006

Its a great school in a great city. It gives you access to a big city while also giving you the feeling of community. When you specialize at the higher degrees, the program and the number of students is smaller so the community is really emphasized.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

The graduate school is very disconnected from undergrad experience , We pay more and don't get as many opportunities

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2010

We were taught a lot of theory, background and analysis skills rather than practical intervention skills... Which meant I had to learn a lot on the job. But I did have the necessary foundation to become a really confident professional and I owe that to my great professors and classes at BU.
