Degree: Political Science

I am really enjoying my current program of study- Government with a concentration in Security Studies! I have fantastic professors who are always available for help/questions and provide excellent feedback! Overall, I'm learning tons and highly recommend it.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

I got to JHU EP Online Grad School for a Masters of Applied Biomedical Engineering. The amount of work for the classes varies between professors. But all the professors I've had thus far seem really passionate about what they teach. That helps me as a student. The online class is really well done and I have no problem interfacing with professors or other group members.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2020

I feel honored to be a part of the Johns Hopkins University community. I currently take online graduate classes. So far, my professors have been attentive and accessible. My education at JHU has been extremely valuable. The only con is that I am only taking one course per semester because of tuition and balancing a full-time job and school.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I am pursing a masters program in Biotechnology with a focus on Bioinformatics. While i am thrilled to be here at JHU, the financial burden has made it very difficult for me to continue being successful in the program. In addition, the student population is not very diverse and it's often difficult for me to connect with other students within and outside of my program. Overall, it is a good program and i am happy to be enrolled in it, but i believe with additional resources, it could be much better

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

It is in an area relatively not safe comparing with other universities, however, it has a great atmosphere of research and study. It is really competitive academically.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The Environmental Sciences and Policy graduate program at JHU puts you in touch directly with professionals in the field. In recent semesters, I've been taught by the chief economist of the transportation division of EPA, the lead legal counsel for Hurricane Sandy relief at DOT, and a Forest Service consultant with 30 years of experience. All have brought great real-world experience to the classroom, and have made themselves available for networking. However, the program is designed for currently working professionals (it's a night school/online program). It's generally assumed that you have your own off-campus housing in DC and Baltimore, and your own existing networks of friends and activities. Other students are friendly, but I would strongly recommend working while going part-time, rather than attending full-time.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: many ways to access the program (online, on-campus etc.) with many campuses for variety in location (Montgomery campus, Homewood campus etc.). Highest quality faculty with the best materials to prepare for the next generation of biotechnologists! Cons: Some faculty are also working professionals like students and therefore less accessible during work hours than full-time professors.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Thus far, I have immensely enjoyed my program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, I have found the coursework to be extremely interesting, the people I have met to be well-rounded and well-traveled individuals. However, the cost of the school is high and so is the cost of living in our state capitol, Washington, D.C.
1.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: professors and the research Cons: cost and location
