Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

I am currently a masters student in the BS/MS program of Materials Science and Engineering. The main pros of the program lie in the closeness of the department. Very good teacher to student ratio causes a very close relationship with professors. Also, closeness with other students allows for a decrease in cut-throat personalities in comparison to other departments. The only con is that it many classes are based on performance in comparison to the rest of the class. In a school with many high performing students, this can tend to become intimidating.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

The Masters of Science in Biotechnology program was excellent. The major "pro" is that you can complete the program as a distance student, although some concentrations (the MBA/MS double degree and the MS with a biodefense concentration) require that you take on-campus classes. The Johns Hopkins brand is excellent, and the professors were top-notch. The cost of the program was less than other comparable masters degrees, so I thought it was a good value.

Hopkins School of Education has a graduate Fellowship program for counselors, helping you complete required credits, practicum, and supervised internship hours all in just one year!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros Great collaborative, supportive environment, general sense of valuing education and putting time into making sure students know their stuff. Qualifying exam is tough. Decent support for grad student social activities. Cons Little support for learning computation/statistics without just taking an undergrad class. Still figuring out how to integrate new technology into the education process. Qualifying exam is tough. I'm not a big fan of the city of Baltimore, although some people like it.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Johns Hopkins University is an excellent school for graduate programs in education. Professors are well trained and experienced. Courses are well designed and applicable to your career. The use of technology for online study is easy to navigate and use for most students. The amount of work can be demanding at times for someone working full-time, but the deadlines and resources are enough to allow even busy professionals time to complete their work.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University is very good for music education. The facility is in downtown Baltimore. They try their best to keep the surrounds safe. The professors are excellent. The cost is high with not much scholarship money available.

It is a great school, but the financial aid service is not a good support to me.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2009

As with most graduate programs, the more effort you put into it the more you will get out. Being a student in the Advanced Academic Programs, I found that by talking to my advisor, other students, and professors there are many opportunties on and off campus other than just showing up to classes and studying.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I would define my time at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School with one word: opportunity. This program will open doors for you if you knock on them, especially in the areas of healthcare, pharma, and biotech, but also in more conventional b-school realms like finance and consulting. Being a self-starter is key here, but for those with initiative you will not lack opportunity.
