Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2010

College was the best 4 years of my life. I made lifelong friends there and learned so much about myself in addition to the skills I gained in the classroom. I loved the sense of community we developed.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

George Washington was a fantastic place to study Public Administration and to earn my Masters Degree. Its location in Washington DC throws students in the way of a phenomenal range of events that can enrich their education if they take advantage of it. Attending lectures at Brookings or AEI or events at the World Bank was common. The undergraduate school had more of a reputation as a place where rich kids went who couldn't get into better / Ivy League universities, but the graduate programs are rigorous and very highly rated.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2006

It was a good school. The professors were all accomplished and did help students when needed. The campus is in the middle of DC which can be a good or bad thing depending on what your likes are.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2019

Worried about the quality of education in an online program? I was. MPH@GW is amazingly different! You are given the tools to succeed and even get in class sessions and professors who know you and are committed to your success. I highly recommend this program.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

Earning a master's degree is a critical next step toward achieving my short-and long-term career goals.I am pursuing a Master of Public Health (MPH) with a concentration in Maternal and Child Health from the George Washington University. I applied to the Milken Institute School of Public Health because of its high-caliber of faculty, robust academic curriculum and the strong commitment to prevention and community health. I hope to work with faculty in my department whose research are aligned with my interests in adolescent risk behaviors and teen pregnancy, racial and ethnic health disparities and maternal and child health. I firmly believe that the MPH program at the George Washington University will equip me with the technical knowledge, analytical and management skills needed to become an effective public health leader. After graduate school, I will obtain a Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health Technical Advisor position and serve as a board member for a community health organization. I seek to dismantle the social structures that inhibit racial and ethnic minorities from achieving optimal health and implement proven interventions that will save the lives of women, infants, and children in sub-Saharan Africa. My long-term career goal is to work as a senior advisor at a private foundation or a government agency where I can provide strategic guidance, leadership, and expertise on domestic and global public health issues.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

Bring your interests and experiences. As an emerging field capturing students from all types of backgrounds, GW's Data Science program is cleverly designed to bring them into the field. Comprehensive theory, practical approach, & classmates from every discipline. The program consists of three core courses: -Intro to Data Science -Data Warehousing -Intro to Data Mining These will be your foundation for the remaining 7 electives which range from Econometrics to Machine Learning. A solid grasp of linear algebra, and probability theory will save you hours of ad hoc studying. Programming proficiency isn't required going in, but having a general grasp will free you up to focus on the task at hand, such as image processing, pattern recognition, or a task of your own design! In such a new field there are many rabbit holes an eager researcher may find themselves in, but blending your own goals and ideas will help uphold the context and focus around the subject matter. All-in-all a great program with great educators, all supporting a great field with a growing community of practitioners, and domains of application.
