Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Excellent faculty, generous funding and a newly revamped Phd requirement system make Hopkins a great choice for a graduate degree in Classics.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: You get research opportunities and interact with faculty a lot. Classes are demanding but interesting. The school is very nice and the program is balanced. Cons: high cost of living and tuition is very expensive, poor financial aid for masters students
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The courses for The Johns Hopkins University's Engineering for Professional Program are taught by professors with extensive industry experience, and are designed to be taken while working full time. Classes can be taken online, and are streamed live from the classroom where you can engage with the professors and other students. It is very convenient to study from another state, with recorded lecture to go back to. The courses are quite rigorous, but it is obvious the instructors are committed to the advancement of knowledge of their students. A final benefit for me is how relevant the courses are to my actual job - it is very nice for my job and my schoolwork to feed off each other. However, prospective students need to weigh carefully the cost of the degree versus the quality of the education they believe they will get. Johns Hopkins is extremely expensive, and it is very likely prospective students can get an almost-as-good education for a fraction of the cost.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

Graduate classes are incredibly expensive. I'm not sure that the return on my investment will be worth it. Professors in the applied economics program have varied backgrounds and tend to be pretty good though classes can be hit or miss (some are not all that different from undergrad classes whereas some are more challenging). The primary advisor is good about keeping students informed about different job opportunities and networking events.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The Johns Hopkins Paul Nitze School of Advanced International Studies provides a great multidisciplinary education with a real global presence. Having campuses on three different continents allowed me to split my studies between the United States and Europe, broadening my horizons and introducing me to thinkers from around the globe. This, along with the SAIS focus on Economics is what sets it apart from similar graduate programs. SAIS gives you practical skills within the theoretical framework of International Affairs making the education truly unique. Unfortunately, few funds are available for American Students like myself studying in this field, and the cost of education continues to rise.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2016

While the academic environment at The Johns Hopkins University can be positively challenging, the sense of community is lacking. Surrounding areas of the Homewood campus are not inviting and do not facilitate student interaction. The administration on campus is also very strict resulting in a dampened social life.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Great professors who are willing to meet with you very often to ensure you stay on track. Classes are comprehensive and in depth, teachers are always ready to help. JHU uses a lot of new technology, they are the best so you can expect a lot from them. Cons: Very little/ non-existent financial aid if you are not a PhD student. Social life is limited around the area due to the location, not much night life. The workload for the Biochemistry Master program is very intense, expect to be studying.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The school is very reputable and has great opportunities throughout the network. The surrounding area and transportation is not the safest, however, with the proper security it helps reassure students they are not alone.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

Great program overall. Very well organized and faculty are the best you will find.
