Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

This program has just been re-vamped, and the classes have been reworked in such a way that they are more appropriate for the degree. Courses are geared toward practical business skills you will use in the workplace, and this degree is set up so that when you finish, it will be a launching pad into starting or joining a successful business operation. The faculty are well-connected, and this program has a valuable international network!

The program is absolutely amazing but the school could do with more diversity

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Athens is a fantastic town, but there are some dangerous areas once you get away from the University/Downtown. Also, there are many cheap-ish places to live, but finding somewhere to live that feels safe can be expensive.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

For the money, I just can't see getting a better education. The faculty and education itself are wonderful and the alumni network is very loyal and well respected.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

As with every law program, the market is suffering. While UGA is a great name to have on a law degree, I would probably would forego the J.D. if given another chance.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Law School is a sketchy investment at the moment, but UGA keeps it fairly affordable and provides a high quality education.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

As a European focused historian I find this department stretching but not ideal. With such a strong emphasis in the American South and the Civil War, there are fewer classes that pertain to my area than I would wish. However, since I am only at UGA for my MA, it serves as a fine place to begin my academic journey and build a strong methodological foundation.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty and fellow graduate students are all passionately engaged in fascinating and productive work. It is a challenging program, but provides a very thorough grounding in the main subdisciplines of anthropology, all with an ecological and environmental focus. Moreover, it is a very cooperative department, not at all pretentious, stressing interdisciplinary collaboration, experience and humility.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

UGA's ANTHROPOLOGY grad program is amazing - small but mighty, the department is very close knit and make a point of making all students feel welcome. More importantly, the entire faculty is devoted to training and marketing the best they can for their students. Because the focus is environment/ecology, this is a highly specialized department. Still, there is very much an air of well roundedness and interdisciplinary scholarship. Students are instructed to not over-focus but to keep an open mind. The department also specializes in keeping everyone interacting and sharing their research. Cons: there is limited funding as decreed by the university and the board of regents. This can be problematic.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

I studied undergraduate journalism here, so my network is still strong. This graduate journalism program has an interesting mix of academia with practical training.
