Student & Graduate Reviews

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!

Graduation Year: 2012

Excellent graduate school program for the business professional wanting to advance his or her knowledge of their field of work.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2006

The professors in the department were not only diverse culturally, but provided a wide array of experiences that they incorporated into our education as well as training that more than prepared me for the professional world after graduation.
3.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012

I did the online experience tailored to people who work full time. I learned a lot and the system was very easy to use. Sometimes it was difficult to work with other people within the class, but that is not unlike physically attending school.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Great teachers and classes for degree are good
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2018

I am in my first year of my degree and the instruction is excellent. However, I have heard that the degree does not pay off until 5 years after graduation. The curriculum is a good mix between cultural studies and more practical economic studies. I am excited to see where a Johns Hopkins SAIS education will take me.
