Student & Graduate Reviews

3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The Hopkins School Counseling Fellows program is a one year intensive masters program with a concentration in urban and metropolitan areas. This program not only teaches you about the profession, but it also helps you to learn who YOU are as an individual. What do you believe in? What are your passions? What are your hopes and dreams? Why you are pursuing this profession? And most importantly, how will you impact those whom you will be serving in a way that produces long-term residual effects. Going to Johns Hopkins for grad school was one of the best decisions I've made in my life to date!

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

The applied economics program at Johns Hopkins University - Advanced Academics Programs is probably one of the toughest academic programs that I've ever been in. The benefit of being in the program is having access to a number of extremely intelligent professors and students. My experience there has helped me garner a new way of thinking and conceptualizing possibilities. I have made a lot of great friends in the programs; friends that I can call on for help with academics or enjoy a Friday night with.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020

The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing PhD program is really great. Although the coursework is challenging, it definitely prepares you to be a nurse scholar and researcher and to be the best in your field. I have grown exponentially after starting the program and appreciate the knowledge and experience I have gained from the program already. I am confident in my ability to obtain research grants and a postdoctoral fellowship when I graduate. The professors are knowledgeable and helpful, and the students are supportive. If I had to go back and choose a program all over again, it would be this one.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2018

I absolutely love Johns Hopkins and the curriculum and what I am learning. Before I started taking the courses I was honestly uninterested in economics; it was a means to an end. But after the very first course I can honestly say I love it! The professors are more than willing to meet you at whatever level you're at and give you the tools you need to succeed. No wonder this is the top university in this field!
2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

This school provides excellent networking opportunities for future prospects. However, more student funding should be available for graduate programs. School should focus more on students and teaching, rather than just research. At least opportunities for students to do research are abundant!
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

I toyed with the idea of getting a Masters for more than two years. Would it truly help me in my career? Was it necessary? Why did I want one? I finally realized that, no, I did not NEED one, but that having a Master's in DC is like running every day if you want to go to the Olympics; to be competitive, you must invest in yourself. I am so glad I did because, only 3 semesters in-- about halfway through my program-- I can already tell that the coursework has been applicable to my work and I have gained the confidence needed to thrive in this fast-paced environment.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2010

It is a great university, especially for studying international public health. I really enjoyed all my classes there, and I thought the material and the professors were top notch. I wish I had been able to attend the school for longer.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2006

If you have big ideas, bring them with you to Johns Hopkins and you can flesh them out in a beautiful environment on a magnificent campus. Learning is easy with the extremely talented and committed faculty and there is plenty for you to do in your spare time in beautiful Baltimore.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

JHSPH offers a lot of research opportunities. You would be able to work along some of the most world renowned researchers and scholars. The school is also unique in the sense that it has a very comprehensive school of public health with departments that do not exist in other schools. Lastly, it is consistently ranked the #1 School of Public Health!
5.0 out of 5.0
