Student & Graduate Reviews

4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is highly acclaimed for its renown professors, course selection, and access to the various resources unique to DC. The work challenging and rewarding. It is highly competitive to be admitted to this program, however once admitted, the atmosphere is one of support from students and staff. The prestigiousness of this institution comes with a hefty price.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2010

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is an incredible school. There are a number of research and educational opportunities for students. The faculty is very supportive and approachable. Everyone is warm and welcoming and the school has a very strong presence in the local community.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

Great school with interesting faculty and program of research. Could do more to meaningfully forge connections with the city of Baltimore at large(although a great deal of worth while effort has been starting to be put forth in this realm).
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012

It is a very competitive program among all the programs in financial math. Most of us has experienced a very tough time in the rigorous training in all the related quantitative disciplines. The program director is very responsible and easy going, you can knock in his door any time during the office hour. The Chairman of the Department is very warm-hearted, and he will do anything to make us getting familiar with each other and develop a close relationship as a big family.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2014

There is very little financial support from the school to international students. The very few scholarships are given to mostly students with medical background, which is quite unfair. Because the government has already subsdiced the education of medical school, and they have many scholarships within their field that students from other schools cannot receive.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The AAP GSS program at JHU is filled with people from all different industries in the DC/VA/MD area. The exposure to a wide variety of subject areas is essential to the success of this program. The type of extra activities that the program organizes from employer tours to weekly symposiums from field experts, creates a rich environment for learning. The DC area is expensive so with that, the courses are also expensive. Overall, I am extremely happy I picked this program and cannot wait to be able to brag that I am a graduate from Johns Hopkins in the near future!
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2013

The program is mostly young, white women studying subjects from the Renaissance on. However, the rich resources and opportunities for work at local museums makes this a great place to pursue those fields. The five years of guaranteed funding is great, although you'll need another year or two of outside scholarship to finish the dissertation. Unfortunately, the department does not have regular interaction or cooperation with other departments.

Pros - professors are at the top of their profession, strong academic value, small class size Cons - fast paced classes, area surrounding school is not the best
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of public health is the best and oldest school of public health in the world and they are not afraid to remind you of that. Classes take place in 8 week sessions where you are expected to cram as much in to your brain as possible and then be tested on it. The real wealth of resources at Hopkins lies in its faculty connections to professionals all over the world and the opportunities that these connections can offer you. The key is to make these connections and milk them for all that they are worth.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

The university itself has incredibly outdated facilities and technology (example: JHU just switched to Blackboard last year, the A/V equipment did not work every time I came into a room to teach, and the JHU e-mail system was an antiquated sytem that only allowed .5GB of e-mail space until last year). The university system is decentralized and it feels like the entire campus is separate entities with different rules. The Biology Department has a few good quality faculty members, and even more mediocre members. The classes are completely worthless, as few faculty members care much about teaching. The good news is that it is very affordable to live in Baltimore and the immediate vicinity of the Homewood Campus is somewhat safer than the rest of Baltimore. Baltimore is a great city.
