While this is an incredible institution, the steep costs of living as well as educational costs are a big hurdle to tackle.

The online program is fantastic for working professionals or those that cannot relocate or afford to live in Washington, D.C., but still want to pursue the academic rigor of this program. As an online program, it is extremely important that there is adequate access to faculty and support, and the MPH@GW has a great support system for students. Faculty are accessible via phone, email, and video meetings. Student Support is very helpful is fixing any problems and fielding student concerns. The coursework is typical graduate work and requires graduate level effort. However, the program is flexible and allows you to take as many or as few classes as you'd like to fit your personal life. Most teachers are understanding of professional and personal commitments. Some courses are more challenging than others, especially those that require group project work. Given that students come from all over the US and other countries, dealing with time zone differences can be difficult. Overall, it is a great program and I believe I will be a competent public health professional with many career prospects upon graduation.

The program is very costly, but my professors are leaders in the public health world. They are very knowledgeable and able to help you get amazing internships in the DC area.

George Washington University is a very excellent school. Located in the heart of DC, you learn so much about life and culture in your surroundings, while also receiving a very solid education from George Washington. My biggest complaint is the cost of tuition is unreal, with little financial aid given. Also the cost of living is ridiculous and it is tough to get by and adds to your stress of school.

The Security Policy Studies program at George Washington University is one-of-a-kind. Not only do students receive a world class competitive education, but they leave GWU with formal training in professional public policy-oriented skills that give them a head start in entering the workplace.
