Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2019

I was fortunate to be part of the launch of the Master of Professional Studies in Project Management at Georgetown University's School of Continuing Studies. I was impressed at the level of quality this program offered during its initial courses. Having worked in curriculum development, this program met both the intellectual challenge and flexibility I was looking for in an online format. Moreover, the course director and program manager were extremely understanding and helpful when I had to withdraw from a course and take a temporary leave of absence due to family reasons. I was humbled and truly grateful by the amount of assistance I was given during that time, and when I returned I was welcomed as though I had never left. Since my return, the program has grown immensely. The student body is robust and full of passionate working professionals from all over the world. The course work is on par with industry standards, and the study materials challenge my way of thinking, while fostering a class environment of lasting relationships, of which is difficult in an online program. I would highly recommend this program, not based on prestige of the school and course work alone, but because the staff made me feel like family when I needed them the most.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2018

I was so eager to join Georgetown's PRCC program. However, after taking several courses, I decided to withdraw. The professors were completely disengaged from the coursework (the problem with having instructors who work full-time jobs), the coursework didn't seem relevant to real-world careers, and, ultimately, I felt like it was a waste of A LOT of money. If you have no background in PR or Communications, this program might work for you. But it is positioned as being great for career advancement, and the program administration specifically told me that those with several years of experience would benefit. I had about 8 years of experience going into the program, and I don't think I learned anything new or applicable to my jobs. The problem was not just the coursework but the professors' seeming lack of interest in the material and in their students. I received such little feedback on my work. I actually had one instructor who 1) completely failed to discuss my midterm with me after scheduling a phone call 2) never posted additional readings that the class repeatedly requested and 3) posted multiple grades on quizzes without any feedback or comments, even after I asked. If you just want a master's degree to boost your rsum, I'm confident you could find a better one for much less money.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Georgetown University is located in a great area of Washington, D.C. that is secluded enough from the rest of the city to be safe but also easily accessible to the rest of DC. There is a great variety of things to do for college students.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

The program offered great education and knowledge, as well as good opportunities for networking and connecting with other peers in the respective areas of interest. Nonetheless, depending on prior education, personal preference, and future directions, finding a job associated with the degree may be difficult, or may offer low salaries. Many students continue to pursue further graduate studies.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

Georgetown's PR & Corporate Communications program offers a spectrum of courses to prepare students for a career in communication leadership positions. One reason I chose the program over other schools is that of its flexibility in course selection and time. I'm in the online program but have the option of taking in person classes since I live in D.C., which I hope to take advantage of it. The courses required for this program are also flexible: out of 10 classes, there are only 3 required core courses, and the other 7 can be selected from about 20 options. Another benefit of this program is the quality of the instructors and the subject matter and readings. Georgetown is a Jesuit school with strong commitments to Ethics, and one core course is Ethics in Public Relations (which is far more interesting than it sounds). One disadvantage of this program and many online programs is the impersonal nature with students and professors, but I think Georgetown and other schools are actively addressing that with more engagement opportunities and requirements.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2020

My experience with the online IMC program at Georgetown University began in 2017, and has been tremendous thus far. Staff is readily available via phone or email and Jacky Yoo, the IMC program director, is both approachable and helpful. Before starting the program, two concerns were: the age of the IMC curriculum and missing face time with teachers and students due to online enrollment versus on-campus enrollment . After researching and interacting with some professors, there was no doubt that I would receive the necessary education to achieve my career goals. Teachers are seasoned veterans in their fields, and willing to give each student the attention needed to optimize their educational experience. Georgetown has also incorporated video conferencing, audio presentations, and active discussion boards that enable students to enjoy the flexibility of online learning while preserving the classroom experience. Though I am new to the program, I enjoy the learning experience. I find that what I'm learning has been beneficial in increasing my efficiency in the workplace. I am excited to continue this journey and attain my degree from a school that values and prioritizes its students academic and personal needs.

Degree: Real Estate
Graduation Year: 2017

Georgetown University offers top quality Master's degree programs for working professionals. The MPRE program was integral in my movement into a management-level career. I was not impressed with the career advising services or the lack of graduate student scholarships offered by the university.
