Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

The school greatly emphasizes and teaches diversity which was my favorite part of the program. I felt that I was able to freely express myself and my passions and received support rather than judgement

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Howard University was an excellent school with amazing teachers and a supportive student body. I really enjoyed my time there. My only complaint was the internship program. I knew of several students who had problems with their placement and in every case, the school took the internship's side instead of the student's.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2018

I'm a current 2nd year MBA student at Howard University School of Business. I feel that the Graduate School has prepared to be a leader in the global business landscape for making me comfortable with being uncomfortable. My MBA coursework is meant to be challenging and our professors create a case-study focused environment that makes learning based on your own thoughts and how to debate your stance. I will be forever indebted to this great institution and value the teachings gained here.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

The graduate school felt disjointed since each department was isolated from the others. The administration of the school was a nightmare and getting anything done, no matter how simple, took days to weeks to complete. The people working in my department were passionate about their field and knew they were stuck working in an old and dysfunctional system. While I can say the instructors I had were great, I'm not sure I could recommend anyone else to seek out a graduate degree from Howard without also emphasizing the all the problems.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

I am extremely thrilled to review Howard University College of Medicine. Here, you can expect a challenging curriculum, passionate professors, helpful peers and long lasting friends and mentors. Medicinal school has been known to be stressful, time consuming and expensive. Initially, I felt overwhelmed and lost. I am the first physician in my family and although I was proud of this, I also felt alone. However all of these negative feelings quickly melted away as I observed the lengths that my professors were willing to go to in order to help their students succeed. They have come in on Sundays before anatomy practicals and given us 3 hour review sessions, they have given us general review sessions at their houses and have provided us with their cell phone numbers. On rounds, they always find time to teach and include us in the care of the patient. My classmates are extraordinary as well. In medicinal school, there is intense pressure to do well and to make the highest scores possible. This environment can foster competitiveness and bring out the "gunners" as we like to call them. However, my classmates are exceptional. They voluntarily post electronic textbooks, review materials and links to great resources. We all genuinely want to see each other succeed and represent Howard in the best way possible. The financial aspect of medicinal school can daunting but the financial aid officers seek out scholarships for us and regularly notify us about opportunities. Overall, my experience here has been phenomenal. The diversity has also contributed to increasing my cultural competence. If I could do things all over again, I would undoubtedly choose Howard for medical school. I feel prepared, confident and supported by all of people I have encountered. I can truly say I gained another family.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The access to resources made my research and career experience very delightful. The professors in my department held a variety of knowledge in different career paths associated with history which allowed for great advisement. I was even able to study a language that would help me excel further in my chosen career field.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

My experience at Howard Law has been my most challenging and rewarding experience to date. It is humbling to stand on the foundation that was laid by the incredibly compassionate and exceptional human beings that have come before me. The short falls in the financial aide office and some of the administrative interactions are completely out weighed by the incredible support of the students, staff and alumni; from helping with class feedback to helping you find resources. There is an incredible atmosphere of support and dedication to the responsibility for future generations. The caliber and quality of the students and professors is exceptional. I strongly recommend Howard Law for future law students. The curriculum prepares students to be confident, competent and compassionate.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Howard was a great institution with a great historic character. It has its shortcoming but you will learn that those weakness will turn into your assertiveness. Classes were diverse and always an open and inviting learning environment. The opportunity to attend has been a dream come true.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2020

Howard University School of Law provides students with a quality education. The faculty are experts in their field of study, whom are willing to help student success. The Department of Career services is diligent in working with student to assist in obtaining they jobs in the area they wish to practice. As an incoming 1L, I've already met with faculty and career services to discuss my goals for my future practice as an attorney.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I am thoroughly satisfied with the on-hand experience that I gained while pursuing the Master of Fine Arts Degree at Howard University. The professors provide real world experience and projects from their careers and prepare students with training necessary for the vast potential of career options. The full scope of projects are explored from the research phase, collaboration, design, print & finishing at the presentation phase. I've seen many students graduate from other institutions with only knowledge or expertise in a few of these fields, whereas here you gain the experience in all areas. You will start a position ahead of the curve or start your own business with full confidence. You will also be provided with the resources needed while being held accountable to the level needed to prove your mastery in the field.
