Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The Security Policy Studies program at George Washington University is one-of-a-kind. Not only do students receive a world class competitive education, but they leave GWU with formal training in professional public policy-oriented skills that give them a head start in entering the workplace.

The George Washington University has been a great place for my continued education.

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2017

There needs to be a better use of technology. I have to use a land line or my cell phone for the audio portion of my class. Sometimes this means excessive phone charges that are not calculated into the expense of the course. Thus this is not a fully online or virtual class.

GWU is a great school because of the city that surrounds it. It offers numerous networking opportunities and ability for career advancement.

The pros include being in a city full of people who want to engage and work hard. The opportunities are endless, as well as the devoted faculty. The cons are the high cost of attendance and cost of living.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

GWU is a fantastic institution and it has a strong presence in Washington, DC. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to be part of an excellent academic environment while also advancing my career with the provided career services and professional network. Although, the cost of attendance of GWU is high, I strongly believe that this one of the best investments for my future.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2007

Great location for the degree, great professors, but they need a full staff and more accessibility for working students, since it is a program designed for professional workers. A tad over priced, but you get access to a lot of people in the field. Take advantage of networking, that's the real pay off. Never felts unsafe on campus, but it is a city and people do get mugged.
