Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

This program was part of TFA's connection with the Johns Hopkins School of Education. It was primarily a vehicle for non-traditional people to earn a teaching certificate in the state of Maryland. The majority of courses were online, and many were easy to complete. Was it rigorous? No. Was it worth my time? For certification, yes. But they for an intellectually challenging environment? No.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

I toyed for a long time with the idea of earning my MA in Comms. A year into the program, I'm so glad I did. It has already helped me immensely in my career by giving me an edge over my peers in gained skills, confidence, and networking opportunities. I would highly recommend this program to anyone thinking about it. The only thing I'm disappointed with is the financial aid opportunities available. There does not seem to be much help available, either in-person or monetarily through the school.

Degree: Law

Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) provides an unparalleled combination of international economics and choices for policy concentrations. The diverse population allows for insights into necessary professional skills and unique academic capabilities. It provides a strong community support base, from both faculty and peers. The range of concentrations and thus courses allows for as highly specialized a concentration as an individual may desire. There is considerable encouragement to pursue non-core courses on a more intuitive basis in order to ensure strong interest in the subject. The amount of stress and uncertainty that may arise on any given day is ultimately mitigated by the approachable nature of the other individuals and the strong academic framework provided.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The Johns Hopkins University a great university with good lecturers and an interesting selection of courses. The school provides the students with real life learning and prepares them for what the working world will be like in their industry. The courses are challenging, the content is great, and some profs are so well respected in their field and it is an honor to be taught by them. The Homewood campus is stunning and its close to everything.

I'm taking this program online and it is great! The admissions team were helpful during this process. The course curriculum is designed to fully prepare you for Government, and the Instructors take time with you. I truly enjoy this degree program.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Intense curriculum with a lot of interesting reading. Teachers are well versed and knowledgeable in their fields. I haven't been at the school long, but feel that it s well worth the tuition. I love the opportunity to work mostly online with only 1 on-site required course.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe the MA in Government program at Johns Hopkins University Advanced Academics Programs prepared me for a career in public service. The proximity to Washington, D.C. provided an unparalleled opportunity to see government in action. The professors were highly trained and the curriculum in all my classes was interesting.
