Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is great but extremely traditional. Expect to spend a lot of time in class during your first year. Faculty are accessible but you have to seek them out.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

Very knowledgable professors, lots of top notch research being done. Very high impact. Most professors are poor teachers though, so classes aren't often that useful.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm excited to be in the part-time MBA program at Johns Hopkins University! The professors are extremely knowledgeable and considerate, my colleagues are driven, and the course material is challenging and intriguing. There are great resources available for support and it is wonderful!

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2017

Although it was difficult for me to transition to an online-only program, JHU's Communication Department does everything possible. What I loved most was how easy it was to approach the professors and staff. It really made me feel like I was part of a community. I managed to bite off more than I could chew, though, and I waited for too long to ask for help. JHU is giving me the opportunity to learn and grow from my mistakes, though!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Great, approachable faculty and a chance to work at the premier medical institution on the planet with great access to a broad range of topics. Faculty contacts outside academia are limiting and career exploration is just starting to fan out. Course offerings are modest which lightens the workload but leaves one wanting for more strenuous classes found in other programs. But its the cheapest big city living in the nation and a wonderfully vibrant, happening city with great proximity to DC and NYC.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

The professors are the very best of the best here. The work is significant but targeted to progress your future career prospects. Great school.
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the key features of my program in International Health is the 4 quarter system rather than the semester system. This is great because you are allowed to take more classes in less time, however the workload is both challenging and intense this way. One of the biggest pros is the support of the faculty and the connections you can make at Hopkins. The biggest con is the fact that there are barely any merit-based scholarships or need-based financial aid.

First year of program, so there is still much to improve upon.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

As a working professional, I appreciate the flexibility of earning my masters degree online from an acreddited univerisity. The professors have both industry and teaching experience and easily link class lectures into everyday industry problems. The con of my graduate program is the amount of writing required. This, however, would be true for most online programs. You do not benefit from having in class discussions and therefore submit discussions online in froms of short essays.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a flexible program which provides a good career resources center. However, it is hard to get in touch with professors at times and the financial aid is limited.
