Student & Graduate Reviews

2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2020

I feel like the professors aren't interested in the material they are teaching, at least for the required first year classes. There is also a lack of variety for research projects among faculty. Otherwise the school is nice. The department is small so you can get to know everyone quickly.

Well I feel that my program is competitive, which is good because everyone is willing to help. However there are certain courses that I need for research I don't see it being offered.

1 There are less activities for graduate students. 2 For PHD students, we must do TA to support our life. It's fine to do TA, but the assignment we must accomplish is to heavy. We have less time to study and do research. 3 The faculties here, although not very much, have high enough quality on their research field. 4 The spoken English class for international students is very useful.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is fairly new. The concept of bringing business with science is great but the program itself needs much improvement.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2020

good emphasis on qualitative work and research. However, lack of diversity and radical pedagogy.

Degree: Music

The program offers great flexibility. The most important thing, the faculty is there to support and advise you.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

CWRU has a super accessible faculty and staff who are some of the best in their specific fields. Though the tuition is expensive, the outcome and access to future jobs and networking is superb.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is challenging and can be overly stressful at times. However, the challenges and stress prepare you for life after graduation. The staff and professors help students to network and are more than willing to help outside of the classroom.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

Case Western Reserve University is a fantastic school with many resources and opportunities for students. The School of Medicine is associated with four hospitals including the world renowned Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, Veterans Hospital, and Metrohealth. Students are exposed to every level of healthcare from the affluent to underprivileged areas creating a well rounded physician. Unfortunately, the area of East Cleveland in which the school is located does experience a fair share of incidents, but the combined forces of the Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland police departments work diligently to ensure the safety of students and residents. Overall, Case Western Reserve University is a fantastic school with powerful resources, friendly staff, and a collaborative student environment.
