5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2007

It is a very good college with excellent academics. It is close to many companies with access to interships.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I feel like my Masters was not academically challenging and didn't really further my knowledge to the degree I felt that it would.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2009

Great place to learn and they have lots of programs to choose from, convenient environment and knowledgeable and expert staff.
1.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2009

I found the education, specifically the special education, program easy. The master's level work was more undergraduate level and teacher's graded easy. I learned a bit just because the area was new to me, but I wouldn't say I was challenged. My first master's was much harder, much more challenging, and more worth the money.
3.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2008

Good school. Program has changed since I received my MBA.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2007

GMU was a great law school. The smaller size allowed for attention from professors. The tax specialty track was very well done.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2018

The Transformative Teaching Program at GMU is amazing. The content will help you create a more inclusive and student-centered classroom. The hybrid course is more online than on campus, which allows one to teach full time while still pursing the degree. Reflecting on your practice allows you to transform your abilities as a classroom teacher. Even the most experienced teachers would benefit from this course.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2011

George Mason has a great ed program that is focused on very important parts of the ed world. We focused a lot in culturally responsive teaching and connecting with student's families. A lot of the projects were very practicum based and a lot of our assignments were connected to work we would do or were already doing for the classroom. They also gave us a strong grounding in education theory which helped us to continue developing our own vision of what a good education was to us. It was an overall great program.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently enrolled in the George Mason online cohort to receive my Master's in Administration. I am enjoying my classes and like that my peers come from different areas of America and some are evening taking online courses abroad. I am pleased with the rigor of my courses and how much I am learning about being a positive educational leader.

Strong program where you can pursue a range of courses/fields not offered at the vast majority of Economics programs.
