Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

THE MPH program at GWU is an amazing educational advancement program that has stimulated my mind for additional learning and evokes eagerness of the application of my education to my future career. The availability of taking both online and on campus classes give a student the flexibility needed to achieve their graduate degree. I would definitely recommend this school to others wishing to pursue a Masters in Public Health.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

GW's counseling program is excellent in ways. You are getting a solid education from professors who are top in their field. The professors really do care about your education. But the down side is, EVERYTHING is so expensive. From tuition to cost of living. It can be very rough.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I have completed both my undergraduate degree and first graduate degree on campus at GW. During the time for the second masters due to my busy work schedule I decided to do these online program. I was very fortunate to great wonderful scholarship package. Being a GW alumni I know that they have very diverse student body. The main campus is located in the heart of the nation's capital close to the White House and the State Department, with metro ride access to the National Health Institute. The professor's are leaders in their fields. In the beginning I was very skeptical about taking online course, but it worked out great with my work schedule. The projects I did for the programs could be applied directly to my day-to-day work. My degree made to more efficient at my work and made me better at what I do. I never thought I would appreciate my courses so much as each lesson I learned from the program I could apply immediate to my work place. One thing that I would advice to anyone taking online course, is to make sure that you set aside the time to go through the course lectures online even through your busy work schedule. On campus course forces students to attend class at particular time and place, but it is up to the student to set aside the time and place to attend the online course, which sometimes can be hard. Thanks to this degree I am currently in the pursuit of my 3rd graduate degree, which again will be an online program in Health care administration from University of Maryland University College.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently earning a Masters degree in Public Health at the George Washington University (GWU). As a full-time employee, I am interested in expanding my public health skill set while continuing to gain real world experience as a mental health counselor. I chose GWU because of the well-developed and interactive platform of the MPH@GW program, which is fully online. The program provides the same rigorous education offered on-campus in a format designed for working adults worldwide. I believe my educational experience is enhanced with the opportunity to work with professionals with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. While educational funding is certainly an investment, the convenience afforded through the MPH@GW program comes at a price that requires great financial responsibility. I am grateful for the opportunity to begin to reduce student loan payments that make it possible for me to attend GWU. Overall, I am confident that the investment into my future and professional development will yield long term rewards that will inspire generational impacts.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

The Educational Technology and Leadership graduate program at The George Washington University is an excellent program to be a student in. While the tuition per course is quite expensive, the quality of education received in all program courses is unmatched in comparison to similar programs. Professors are knowledgeable, easily accessible, and supportive.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2017

I am pursuing a Masters of Professional Studies in Strategic Public Relation at The George Washington University (GW), and I am expected to graduate in May of 2017. Coming from an HBCU for my studies as an undergraduate student, the environment at GW has been exceptionally amazing. I chose GW because I wanted my education background to be as diverse as possible and take advantage of the opportunities that came with that. In the College of Professional Studies I am a part of the Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM). GSPM, in 2015, was recognized by PR Week for having the #1 public relations program in the country. For that reason I do feel like I selected the right program. This has its advantages; I and other students in the program are being taught and coached by the top public relations and communications professionals in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area. We have ample opportunities to rub elbows with some very important people; congressmen, press secretaries, journalists, producers, and many politically appointed officials in the federal government. Not only is the GSPM network large, but diverse as well. Amongst those important people have been Asian, African-American, Hispanic, and Middle Eastern people all who we look to for inspiration and hope that our careers will be as successful as theirs. The classroom environment is advanced, but the professors in the program are dedicated to helping us become the best. The professors provide continuous support for the job-seeking students, and often send job opportunities through email and bring any they know of with them to class. I could go on and on about the great things GSPM has done and will continue to do for its students, but there is one thing about the program that I can say is not my favorite. The classes for the Strategic Public Relations program are scheduled from 7:10 p.m. to 9:40 p.m. on designated days of the week. Working full-time and attending classes after work can take a toll on me sometimes, but I push through and I am still able to successfully complete all of my work. If it was anything I could change about the program that would be it. I encourage anyone interested in political management, corporate social responsibility, public relations, and government relation to check out GW’s Graduate School of Political Management. I can guarantee they will not be disappointed.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

The MPH@GW program is George Washington's online MPH program. The program is designed to accommodate students who are working and going to school at the same time. I enjoy the flexibility of the program as well as the convenience of the online format. The teachers have impressive experiences in the public health field and are easy to connect with via email and conference call sessions. The only disadvantage of this program is the lack of networking abilities with other students within the program. Overall, I would recommend this program to anyone interested in an MPH and working full time.
