Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

GMU's program is well known, and the area is great for networking. The classes are smaller, making it easier for individual learning. The workload is alot for the amount of content being focused on. Better professors are needed.

I have been taking course through George Mason University online. I have found the course very educational and easy to management the course load while still working.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

George Mason has one of the most competative programs in the Psychology area. Indutrial and Organizational Psychology is EXTREMELY hard to get into. The faculty is great and the class are appropriately difficult. It really teaches you what you need to know about your subject matter. I have not had any career counseling yet, but I am sure it will be offered when I get to that point.

GMU has a good teacher education program but it should include online courses for working teachers, to make it more accessible.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

The pros and cons are the same with many graduate programs. The most challenging aspect is simply getting started. It is dually important to have an architecture for what you would like to see accomplished at the commencement of your studies. There are an unlimited number of human and physical resources which are available and may be leveraged to help achieve your individual goals as well.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The teaching is excellent, and the faculty are always willing to help. There isn't too much going on in suburban Fairfax, and there isn't a lot of money to go around, but you will be kept abreast of any professional development opportunities that come up. The program also has a good balance of both applied and theoretical linguistics.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros are; good teachers, and expectation of good career opportunities on completion, and cons is that the program is new at GMU and thus the department has yet to develop more employer relations for appropriate internships/jobs
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: Flexibility, use of technology, great diversity Cons: affordability
2.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The program enables me to continue my education and earn a Masters in Physiology. More importantly it offers me a competitive advantage in my effort of being enrolled into a dental school. My primary goal is to become a dentist, but with today's competitive market for admission into dental school, many students, such as my self are forced to matriculated into a graduate program just to have a chance of being accepted. I earned a 3.5 gpa in undergrad but dental schools but dental schools denied my application to matriculate.
