Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

My program is online but instead of just assigning various assignments we have sessions that are interactive so that it still feels like a class session. One of the best experiences that I have had with online classes and has truly exceeded my expectations.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The biggest pro of the Sports Industry Management program is that all of our professors currently work or have worked in the sports industry. They are able to give us credible feedback and help students network. The biggest con of the program is that most of our project schedules are the same for every class, so the work load can be a bit overwhelming, but doable.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgetown University Law Center has an excellent Law program with a truly international focus. Students here are from over eighty countries, particularly those of us doing the Master in Laws. We share experiences with many JD and US trained students in our classes and as part of campus life. The faculty and administrative staff are supportive and responsive, with world class experience. There is a dedicated Graduate Career Development office that provides career guides, workshops and individualized support to help us with the US market job hunt and internships/externships (although the hiring opportunities for foreign trained graduates are very slim, modestly considered by some alumni I spoke with, to be less than 10% of a class of 200). The only challenge is the general separation if the Law School from the Main campus and ofcourse the cost of education and campus housing. DC is an expensive place, but what can be said for a driven student from an under-represented home region and diverse ethnic background..work hard and search for scholarships like a job!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is very good, MS in Physiology and Biophysics. It is very demanding and challenging, with a strict curriculum that strongly prepare you to be competitive in sciences, it is focus on human health. As I said the academic program is excellent, but extremely expensive as well as the area. DC is a very expensive place to live, which mean an economic overload even for basic expenses.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgetown's Security Studies Program is a fantastic mix of theory and practice -- the professors make themselves available to students for advice related to (or not related to!) the course of study despite many of them being current practitioners in the field. Highly recommend!

Degree: Real Estate Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the MPS-Real Estate program at Georgetown University is building a foundation in all aspects real estate that I'm using to pursue a career in affordable housing development. Our cities need to have viable, subsidized housing to create diverse places to live. Georgetown's curriculum is incredibly geared toward making decisions based on morals which has significantly impacted my career decisions.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgetown's MSFS program provides people with international experience to further their interests in foreign affairs. Alumni rave about the accessibility of faculty and how they are willing to open their personal networks to students. It is a very expensive program, however, with limited funding. This is a huge factor, especially for those who want to work in the non-profit or public sector.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

The components that make up the program at Georgetown are only minimal when paired with the value that one places upon the education and social experience on their own. Their are some things out of a students control but the collegiate experience at Georgetown is indeed worth everything. Hoya Saxa !

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

This graduate program is very new, and has a few kinks that need to be fixed. The faculty is amazing, and are always willing to assist you with any issues. The school itself is great, but commuting to this campus is a nightmare. Driving to campus everyday is not feasible, unless you can afford to spend the money for parking. The school does try to alleviate some of the transportation issues with free shuttles buses.
