By far, one of the greatest perks of being at Peabody is the access to National Education researchers and trendsetters. The level of work one does while at Peabody is expected to be high. The program is rigorous, and you cannot help but learn more than you even know you're learning at the time.

Vanderbilt is very expensive, both for tuition and for Nashville living expenses, but it is worth the expense. The classes and the professors are amazing, and attending Vanderbilt opens up so many doors professionally.

I was accepted into both Harvard and Rice University to pursue my Master's Degree as well, but ultimately chose Vanderbilt because of a great combination of affordability, prestige, and locale.

The program is ranked as the number 1 graduate school for education, which attracts a caliber of student that enriches the academic experience. I learn as much from my peers and their diverse education and employment backgrounds prior to attending Peabody. The professors are absolutely accessible and willing to help students engage in issues related to their interests. There is a lot of room to explore other departments with the elective course choice. Students are able to package their experience according to their passions and interests. The exploratory allowance meets the needs of someone who enjoys learning beyond their outline program requirements. Peabody could be more intentional about increasing ethnic and racial diversity.

The MEd Special Education program is wonderful. Faculty are prominent members of the field and the many research studies being conducted provide ample opportunity for gaining experience as well as for financing school. Expectations are high and graduate students are expected to self-advocate when needing guidance and/or assistance.
