Student & Graduate Reviews

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: 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.

As an Accelerated Masters Student in Educational Psychology, I feel I have grown more in the last year more than ever. I am so grateful to be in the Educational Psychology program at George Mason University.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

I've only just started this program but from experience I feel that the professors, advisors, and other staff actually care about helping us meet our goals, get certified, and graduate on time. Everything is really structured and easy to follow, and at least for my program, you have a choice to accelerate it. The cohorts are small so you get to know the people you're taking classes with as well as your professors. It's nice that GMU offers a masters program for career switchers like me.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program in the history of decorative arts is incredible and affords access to an extensive and priceless network of decorative arts professionals and academics that no other program would provide. Unfortunately I can not fairly rate George Mason's main campus, because my program is off campus in Washington, DC. I am rarely at the Fairfax location.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Although I was initially very pleased by the helpfulness and speed of the admissions committee, the rest of the schools administration seems lacking. The program itself is simply a video classroom version of the Georgetown post-baccalaureate program. It was difficult to reach teachers for questions. On the bright side, the Mason program was cheaper.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

All y classes are on the Arlington campus which is right in the middle of the city! It is a great city full of young professionals in every sector. The program is new so everyone involved is excited and invested in your success. The career network and other services are accessible and quality as well.
