Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

My program is wonderful in that my graduating class is very diverse. The faculty are very supportive of students and go out of their way to assist students with research ideas and interests. The workload is high, but the education I'm receiving is certainly worth it.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2009

I attended GWU between 2007 and 2009 for my Masters in Public Health degree. Overall I have found my experience useful. I received a number of fellowships after the program and eventually a job that was related to my field of study. In addition, the program sent me to Africa for a semester to work with a small non-profit giving me invaluable experience. In addition, the class were challenging and informative, especially once I made it past the standard core classes. I was able to specialize and take classes that were more suited to my interest. The school however is not without its faults. The Global Health Department, was completely unhelpful during my entire 2 years. In fact, over the course of the two years, I had 4 department appointed advisers, one of whom I only met with once. The program at times was unorganized, changed almost constantly, and faculty members were frequently difficult to reach. Some of the departmental classes had similar issues. It was not infrequent to have the same guest speakers in back to back classes thereby hearing the same lecture multiple classes. From what I hear, this has changed, and the Global Health Department and MPH program is stronger than ever. It's unfortunate that I was not able to share in this experience.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

Being that this is my first year here and I have not taken full advantage of all there is to offer going to school in DC, I find that this school is really worthwhile. The faculty and supporting staff have your best interests at heart and are very willing to share knowledge of upcoming opportunities. I kept hearing things like this spoken left and right from other students, but you never truly understand until you are submerged into the school with the day to day activities. The opportunities found here at George Washington University are honestly not like anywhere else.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2011

I really enjoyed studying in the American Studies Department. I feel that their research seminar increased my levels of analysis and writing. However, I do not think that the American Studies Department should have a concentration in Museums and Material Culture. There is little cohesion between the American Studies faculty and the Museum Studies faculty. None of the faculty of the American Studies department knew anything about the concentration. It is left completely to the student to find the most applicable courses, internships, and career advisors. It was nice to be able to take courses from the Museum Studies, Museum Education and American Studies departments, but the lack of faculty involvement or advising left me wondering at the point of the concentration.

I like GW and think the best parts are the surrounding area and the GWSB career center!

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is ranked # 4, according to Newsweek and World Report. The faculty will do whatever they can to make sure the student succeeds. As a student I will be prepared to practice medicine when I graduate. The area is fantastic. There is so much to do and see. My family will not get bored, while I am in school. A con of this and any other PA program is that I will have limited time to explore the area and spend the desired amount of time with my family. Also, I will have to commute via metro into the city due to the high cost of living. On the other hand, the metro is a very convenient source of transportation to that I don't have to fight the city traffic and pay for parking in the city. I know that even though I have less time for my family now it will definitely pay off in the future and I will eventually have much more time in the future.
