Degree: Public Health

Pros: 1. Professors and staff 2. Affiliations with some of the best organizations in the DC area Cons: 1. The cost of living around the DC area combined with the cost of graduate school puts most into a state of financial burden. 2. Commuting to campus can be difficult around the DC area,

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I've gotten a great education at this program. In some ways I wish it were CACREP - not because I believe in the CACREP mission but because I want as few roadblocks as possible moving forward in this field and the CACREP thing does create some barriers.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Teaching professors who are incredibly passionate about their profession, multiple opportunities to collaborate with peers, amazing Adaptive Technology Lab and class, many future job leads, and extremely affordable tuition for in-state residents. Mason's Special Education program is truly a hidden gem on campus! I already have a graduate degree from a "top tier" school (that was much more expensive) and Mason has definitely proven to be an excellent value proposition in my professional life. Cons: Fairfax, VA is one of the most expensive places to live in the U.S. so Mason remains a "commuter school" (although this has improved recently) with parking that's scarce/expensive, and not much name recognition for Mason in the wider world (although this seems to be improving as well) despite a large international segment of our student body.
