Student & Graduate Reviews

3.42 out of 5.0
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.

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.

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

This program is top notch. A perfect blend of academic rigor and flexibility. Although it is pricey, it is worth every penny.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Johns Hopkins is a world renowned leader in education research and teacher preparation. Through my courses I have learned about the policy, history and current issues that affect special education, science education, and the opportunity gap. In addition to theoretical knowledge, I have enhanced my teaching pedagogy. The cons of my program would probably be the same of any online program I did. Though I appreciate some of the additional freedom and the ability for me to maintain a full-time teaching job while being a full-time student, I would prefer to be in a classroom interacting with my peers and professors.
