Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The George Washington University's Master of Public Administration program builds on the years of experiences of one of the best faculty and staff in the DC area while offering a competitive program. Moreover, The George Washington University offers a unique experience to study in downtown DC, just a few blocks from the White House.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I've just started a doctoral program but also completed a master's program in Engineering Management at George Washington through their off-campus programs department. I've had very good, knowledgable faculty members. The terms are shorter than on-campus and can be very intense, but I've found most of the coursework useful and applicable.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

GW, like any other medical school, has many benefits and problems. Unfortunately I'm going to elaborate on its problems in this review. Its location in DC provides access to a wealth of opportunities but the cost of living can often be prohibitive compared to other parts of the country. The GW administration, while very well-meaning, is appallingly bad at communicating with students and at making any changes to problem areas in advance to prevent crisis. They do respond to student concerns, but in a very delayed and reactionary fashion, even when they are aware in advance that specific problems have cropped up around the same issues for years prior. One often feels like you are succeeding and progressing through the MD curriculum DESPITE GW instead of because of GW.

The Master of Public Health Program at GWU provides fantastic training that catalyzes professionals into Public Health Practicioners. The academic rigor is coupled with technology that both challenges and rewards the students. This program prepares students from all backgrounds to successfully face the varied challeneges of the domestic and international health spectrum. The MPH program at GWU provides multiple opportunities for networking and collaborative experiences, which is ultimately what is necessary to formulate effective change in the health systems across the globe. The classwork spans multiple disciplines involved in public health, which creates well-rounded professionals who can incorporate holistic change in public health. Professors support creativity and individuality while challenging the students to see the many viewpoints that converge to develop public health. Overall, the MPH at GWU program provides students with diverse learning opportunities, innovative technology, and collaboration to develop professionals into Public Health Practicioners.

Degree: Interior Design
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is great. The curriculum is very thorough and covers all areas to become a competitive and competent designer. The GWU community is very active. There are events and programs for all interests. Housing can become an issue in choosing between exorbitant DC prices or long commutes.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Large JD program, so you can get lost in the crowd. Professors are generally great, but the staff (clerkships, career, etc) are generally unhelpful and often rude. The area is unbeatable for internships and high quality experience can be gained, even during the semester.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The George Washington University (GWU) offers an amazing combination of on-site and distance courses. For me, distance course is the way to go, and GWU offers amazing technology to take full advantage of their offerings.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

My program is rather new and in an emerging interdisciplinary field that combines business, policy, science, and technology. There is limited funding for the program at the master's level, but it offers vast opportunities in international development and the ability to specialize in transportation planning.
