I've been a GMU Masters and PhD student for several years. The program continues to improve. E.g., they now have graduate student housing, with more on the way; the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GAPSA) has a stronger presence on campus and the ear of the GMU president and the Board of Visitors; and, there is better consolidated information for graduate students via gradlife.gmu.edu.

I believe that you have the ability to network and meet other professionals in your cohort. The cost of the program is a little expensive and the financial aid opportunities for graduate students are pretty low.

The program is very informative and helpful for adult professionals wanting to establish a flourishing career. I am one of the youngest in the program so affordability is not the easiest for me.

So far I like the Grad program in History. It's a good program and am excited to finish out my Master's degree here.

With respect to my program of study, I feel that all classes need to have field experience. Having a filed experience (i.e. each class having set aside a specific number of hours to go work in the school system) is a great exposure. Unfortunately only some classes have that. Apart from that it I have great professors, counselors and involvement in the campus.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The quality for the value of the graduate program is exceptional. The faculty are wonderful and knowledgeable. The campus is beautiful. The cons are the traffic is horrible and the cost of living in this area is rather expensive but because GMU is within the D.C. Metro area, that can be understandable.
