Student & Graduate Reviews

Pros: - Academic environment is very collaborative - Ample research opportunities in most fields Cons: - Some Professors are rockstars in their fields so not as easy to get hold of :(

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

the phD program in history is really very good. Makes Yale worth studying at.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

It can be intimidating at first because the program is geared for self-directed learners. It's a pass/fail system and there are only mid terms and finals. However the freedom to learn according to your style is so liberating and is perfect for the person wanting to schedule their life around school work and not the other way around.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

Yale School of Public Health has exceptional access to faculty members. They are always willing to speak with you, and mentor you during your time at Yale. The classes are small and you get a lot of individual attention. The surrounding area of New Haven is very small and there is not a lot to do here. There are on campus events, and student clubs to join however.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

I love Yale SOM! The small class allows us the opportunity to really get to know each other, foster a strong bond with our faculty (who all know our names), hang out with the Deans. We still have some room to grow in student diversity. This is a focus of the school and you can see that they are working on it. In my class, I have friends from Iceland, Bulgaria, Nepal and in the class below me there are people from Egypt, Russia, Belarus. I have been to school in a lot of different countries and I hadn't had a chance to meet these types of people. I encourage anyone who doesn't want to just go through school but who really wants to make a difference on their campus, to attend SOM!

The 2 years gave me a fantastic opportunity to expand my network and also equip myself with tools to solve problems being faced in today's marketplace.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

I came to SOM to switch careers and to get a solid grounding in business. I not only succeeded in both of these goals but found it was a fantastic community to spend my two years of graduate school.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The program at Yale is targeted towards getting students thinking early about "packaging" themselves as future scholars and preparing themselves to think ahead to get the most out of the program in a timely manner. The academic atmosphere, while intense, is not unproductively competitive. Sometimes it is difficult to get one-on-one time with faculty, which just means students need to be pro-active.

Pros: awesome faculty, tons of opportunities Cons: getting started in the program, establishing contacts with professors and such takes some effort.

The department has a strong faculty and student body; I've learned a great deal in my time here. It's very open to different methodological approaches.
