Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoy that the Public Relations and Corporate Communications Masters of Professional Studies program is interactive and hands on. The course selections are extremely tailored and industry specific.The program allows its students to apply the skills learned in real life industry settings. Georgetown has a excellent network of public relations professionals that come back to lecture and provide industry insights. There are also a variety of professional development workshop to prepare students for the workplace. The program caters to working professionals, so most classes are in the evening. This does not allow for much scheduling flexibility.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgetown is a phenomenal school! The faculty in the linguistics department are well-known in their respective areas, and they are really interested in working with and mentoring the students. The classes are interesting, and they teach you how to explain your research to non-linguists. DC is a great city, but housing is expensive. Also, the main campus has free shuttles from metro stops, but there is no metro right in Georgetown.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The Graduates career program is more geared towards US trained lawyers or those that are fresh out of school. As an established professional it may be difficult to find it very useful. There is not much in terms of financial aid at the school. However the lecturers are great at what they do being leaders in their field

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The cons for my program is that it is difficult to get to know my classmates. The program is designed to accommodate those who have full-time jobs and does not require extensive group projects or other ways for classmates to get to know each other more. The pros for my program is that the students come from various backgrounds with rich knowledge that benefits everyone in the class.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is extremely valuable to me because of its direct correlation to the career field. I feel that I am being well prepared for a job. The biggest downside to the program is the high cost of the tuition and also living in Washington, DC.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The vast network available in the sports industry cannot be beat. Unfortunately, there is not much financial assistance.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of this program is that the caliber of professors that teach in the program are industry professionals. You learn from first hand experience and can apply book knowledge to real life. The cons are that you are not on main campus because they just built a brand new building in the middle of downtown.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2012

School is in the best location for students interested in government, public interest, or international work. Pros: knowledgeable and accessible faculty, nation-wide alumni network, wide selection of courses and academic opportunities, prestige, location, large career services staff with a separate public interest career office, and one of the best loan repayment programs in the country. Cons: DC is expensive, popular classes are large, and it could be more diverse.
