Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

UW Biology is an excellent place to become an independent researcher. There are 5 years guaranteed funding (via TA/RAships) and potential additional scholarship support. And Seattle is the most incredible place to live and to be a student or young professional.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2009

The professors are definitely dedicated to seeing you through the program and taking extra time to help you succeed. They do offer distance courses for students, though you had to be logged in to class at the same time. The professors did a good job of making space for those students so they could participate in classes. For students who speak English as a foreign language, the program can be rather challenging as there are not many resources within the school of nursing for ESL. Overall, it is a great program with a good reputation.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate degree in applied math online at the university of washington is excellent. The staff and faculty is always ready to answer questions and help with whatever I need. No cons at this point in my work.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is largely a "self-study" and "self-learning" one, much like the medical school model. The only frustration with this is the immense amount of time required to be in the actual classroom for lectures that do not pertain to material we need to know. Much of this time could be spent studying and solidifying knowledge. It's intense and I feel as though they do a great job at preparing students for continued life learning and clinical inquiry. The professors challenge the students to question and to evolve as clinicians. I have grown so much during this last year!

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros are the experience and the fact that this is directly applicable to real-world/work place. Cons are that it is a very expensive program.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: The UW School of Public Health as a whole is very strong, rigorous methods courses, extensive faculty, many focuses/concentrations available. Cons: Department of Health Services administration was understaffed and as a result not very supportive, SPH lacks a sense of community in part because it is physically scattered throughout the health sciences building, community partnerships not nearly as strong as they could be given the thriving public health sector in Seattle, expensive tuition.
