Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

I am enrolled in the online MS of Global Studies and International Affairs, with a concentration in Development and Global Health. I was really hesitant at first with signing up for an online degree, but it's actually been really great. I think there's this stigma that online programs are a joke, where you don't actually learn anything; but this has been so far from my experience. I have been more challenged in all the courses I've taken so far than any of my in-person classes. The professors are just as, if not, more responsive and it requires an additional skill set: the ability to communicate and communicate with people who are not right in front of you, or even in your own time zone. One of the most challenging pieces of these courses are the group work and working with students of different cultural and language backgrounds who are in different time zones and who bring completely different perspectives and ideas to the discussions.

I am in the College of Professional Studies and take my classes online. I am close to the Seattle campus and I think this campus has a supportive administration, fun student events, and the campus is easy to get to. Overall, the Masters of Education program is great! I am learning about cutting-edge strategies and research in learning and instruction, while applying my learning to my job, as an educator. I would definitely recommend this program and graduate school to those looking to gain knowledge in their field.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty are very supportive. The online courses are rigorous but comvenient. Being an online student, I can't speak much about the campus social life, but I did enjoy the week-long summer residency that I spent on campus. There is no financial aid avaiable for my online program in higher education administration other than student loans.

Only a few schools in the USA offer the MS in Drug Regulatory Affairs program. Northeastern University is one of the leading universities in offering this course with a lot of options of electives. The lecturers are highly experienced working professionals giving us hands on experience on how it is going to be in real life. Boston as a city is expensive to live in therefore it is important for a student like to me to work while studying. There are various job opportunities on campus but it is difficult to get in as most of them work on reference.

The Northeastern University D’Amore-McKim School of Business MBA program is designed to foster business professionals’ into innovative leaders within their respective fields. The D’Amore-McKim School of Business MBA program will allow me to broaden my perspective of business, increase my practicality, and be competent enough to tackle challenges from a variety of angles.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Northeastern has a fabulous program for School Psychology, and they boast an almost 100% placement rate in jobs after graduation. They have tons of opportunities for internships and the professors have all been so supportive and kind. The drawback are that there is NO financial aid except federal available and it is expensive. Plus you're living in Boston, which also makes it difficult to deal with the cost of graduate school. Overall though, definitely worth it, and a great program!

Degree: Biomedical Engineering

I love Northeastern! It's been such an honor to be a part of a new and developing program, and I think it has great potential to be one of the most competitive and sought after schools and degrees in the future.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

I am away from the main campus so I can not rate social aspects
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I think getting a Ph.D. is tricky. There needs to be more defined goals for this degree. I am at the end now and I feel like there is no criteria, they just let you leave when they are ready/run out of funding.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

As I progress in my job responsibilities, completion of a Masters level program that is specific to my field is very beneficial. There are not many programs to choose from and I feel that the one at NEU is exceptional. I have had the pleasure to work with many esteemed faculty and in 3 quarters have gained so much from this particular program. I hope that my evaluation of the program is recalculated because I had to leave several areas blank. The only reason for leaving these blank is that I am a 100% online student so I am not able to respond to survey questions that specifically deal with on campus topics. One con of this program is the lack of availability of core RT courses during the summer months. Other than this I have been very pleased with the program overall.
