Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

Excellent music education. Outstanding faculty. Financial aide is low.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

Johns Hopkins Master of Arts in Communications was a great choice for me. The program can be completed on-line or on campus. I live in Texas and work full-time so the online option was perfect for me. The staff and faculty have all been very helpful and have given us all of the tool, instruction, and resources to be successful graduate students.

I am greatly looking forward to my time at Johns Hopkins University as a graduate student. The program I am enrolling in is directly related to my job and has a phenomenal reputation, and I expect to be much better off because of the program.

The program in Epidemiology is high quality, especially considering that Hopkins is the number 1 program in Public Health.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Great program with a very strong focus on developing a skilled and respectful manager Coursework includes on-site student residency and technology valuation which are key to establishing a manager with an entrepreneurial spirit. Cons include lack of cheap residential options close to school, however, many options are available near Mt. Vernon and Charles village areas with decent connectivity

Excellent graduate school but very expensive.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I am doing the part-time, joint degree between the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the MBA. While there is some crossover in the actual content I am learning, the two programs could not be more different. For one, the semesters are different; the Krieger School has 13-week semesters, whereas the Carey School has 8-week semesters. The effect for me as a part time student who is working full time is that while the 13 week is drawn out, with a good balance of reading and assignments, the 8-week classes feel very rushed and stressful. I think the pacing is also reflected in how the professors teach. The professors at the Krieger School have been top notch: challenging, engaged, accessible, and experienced. While I do not question the experience of most of my professors at Carey, having to cram longer courses into 8 weeks gives the effect of cranking out assignments. The advisors for both degrees have been stellar - very communicative and helpful, and I very appreciate their support. The program is certainly academically rigorous, and for the most part, I have been able to apply what I have learned directly to my job. I look forward to the rest of it.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a one of a kind graduate program which prepares its students for the medical device design industry. They teach you how to go from bedside to bench top to bedside for both developing and developed countries.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

The workload varies by professor. A few professors are very helpful, however for the most part, I found them inaccessible and unwilling to help students. The career center is also not that great. I've been waiting for the scholarship application page to be updated for this year, but it has been completely removed and classes are almost $3700 per course. I guess it's all worth having a JHU degree.
