Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
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.

The professors are the very best of the best here. The work is significant but targeted to progress your future career prospects. Great school.

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.

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.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

First of all, faculties are amazing. They try to help you find your pathway towards your goal and they are dedicated. Program provides different aspects of special education early childhood.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies offers truly the best education in international economics in the world. In just one semester, I have learned about diverse subjects and worked with fellow students on a multitude of projects from around the world. I consider myself so fortunate to be enrolled here. The flexibility of the program also allows for anyone to concurrently work an internship (or two in my case) and gain valuable experience. Perhaps the only con is that some of the class lectures are not conducive to volunteering information. On the whole, this school is fantastic.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

My courses so far in the Biotechnology masters program have been awesome! I worried that the online format would not be as challenging and fulfilling as in-person courses, but the online classes have given me the challenge I expected out of graduate-level courses at an institution like JHU. My instructors have been wonderful and highly accessible.

I am very happy to be the JHU srudent community. Though the school is expensive the education quality is worth the price.
