Student & Graduate Reviews

4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Georgetown University was a fantastic community for students who were interested in getting a challenging education: professors were thought-provoking, understanding, and willing to push students to consider angles and views to which they previously had no exposure. The School of Foreign Service in particular was great--the diversity of classes and students who took the time to thoroughly get to know the material and debate issues ranging from American politics to energy security to societal challenges in developing countries.

It was a great university. The classes were challenging and it was a good investment.

We have a smaller department, which provides a great support system. The collaborative nature greatly aids in developing your research. The location itself is rather expensive, but the stipend allows for comfortable living. There are tons of opportunities to further your research as well as enhancing your social life.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

You can remain very isolated within your own program and not meet people from other programs in the school. Great networking opportunities - if you put yourself out there, there is no way you won't have a job coming out of Georgetown!

Graduation Year: 2018

The School of Foreign Service offers immense resources for graduate students at Georgetown University. The Security Studies Program I am in is the leading security studies program in the United States, the professors are incredible resources, and the students are interesting and well-rounded. The only area of improvement would be financial aid. Given that the majority of its students go into the public sector and government work after graduation, it's a shame the program doesn't offer more financial support.

Pros: access to industry professionals networking opportunities Cons: course material lack of sufficient job placement opportunities
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Georgetown is a very nurturing environment and we are pushed to work very hard. The program utilizes a virtual learning experience that is extremely effective. The program, however, is one of the most expensive programs and no financial aid is offered.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

The pros are that the faculty members are extremely supportive and so are the peers. There are a number of peer services that help students out including the Medical Note-Taking Service, TA review sessions, and Peer to Peer tutoring. The professors are experts from every field, and physicians from MedStar bring their residents to teach students crucial medical skills from the first year itself. The cons include the high expense of education and living and the rather old and outdated buildings and facilities.
