Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

SAIS has been one of the best decisions I have made! Classmates are smart and well-informed, professors are approachable and professional. The environment is uplifting and collaborative.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I love how you can work full time while completing this program. The classes are interesting, diverse, and pertinent to the biotech industry. They are definitely tough but useful. Offering both online and on campus classes is great, but the selection for on campus is pretty limited. Overall very happy with the program.

The program is online but is extremely organized and all objectives and expectations are clear. However, as a doctoral program that needs to be completed in 3 years- the program is extremely rigorous (although- I guess this should be expected to be done in 3 years!)

Degree: Instructional Technology

Excellent online courses, wonderful city (but must be careful), and a world-class education.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

I believe that Hopkins provides one of the best public health programs in the States, if not in the world. Students and professors are very collaborative and supportive each other, and although course loads are very challenging, most of courses encourage students to work together and focus on group projects, preparing students to work in inter-disciplinary teams. It is unfortunate that the school is not in the safest neighborhoods but there are security guards standing in every block and students feel generally safe to walk around the campus.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Some of the cons are based on the school's location of east Baltimore, which is not a very safe area. The pros are it is one of the best schools in the country for biomedical graduate programs.

Johns Hopkins SAIS offers an incredible network and a rigorous education. I highly recommend the program.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Is a heavy workload and only a good fit for someone who can handle a lot of reading and has good time management skills but the courses do tend to teach a lot of useful information for the field of study.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

My department is fantastic! The faculty members are always willing to help and give advice. It's a social campus with a good work/life balance.
