Student & Graduate Reviews (38)

Degree: American History (United States)
Graduation Year: 2003

GW is a great school with many possibilities and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to go to school near D.C.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2012

Graduate and undergraduate programs at GWU are both high quality, but graduate programs seem to draw a broader range of students and experiences. The International Affairs program is very good as a terminal Masters program, with a focus on professional development and the flexibility to work or intern full or part time while attending.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2010

I had some really phenomenal professors at GW, especially in art history. However when I attended, my major required specific classes, such as senior seminars, but not many were offered. This meant that even if you were interested in a specific time period or subject matter, the advanced classes offered were limited. Yet even the classes I took out of necessity were well taught and interesting. I also enjoyed a wide range of classes outside of my major, from psychology, to literature, to cardio kick-boxing.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2012

Professors were thought leaders in their field. Amazing academic resources. Suuuuuuuper expensive. Not a strong sense of community if that's what you're looking for. Extremely smart peers that challenge you. I fealt out of place as a scholarship student in a school full of rich kids at first, but the relationships that were made and the friends that I still have were priceless. There is nowhere quite like DC, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2009

It gave me the city life experience but as a result I missed out on the college campus experience, there was no football team and greek life was a little weird and spread out so there wasn't a big sense of community for me. The statistics department was FANTASTIC, small and intimate with incredible teachers but I found the other departments somewhat lacking.

Degree: Security and Loss Prevention Services
Graduation Year: 2015

Highly competent faculty: mostly adjuncts who have day jobs in the field they're teaching. Ideal location in Washington DC.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

GWU is a very challenging school based upon your school. It is also a very expensive school, with very sophisticated night life. The social life at GWU is dominated by either greek life affiliation, political affiliation, or socioeconomic status.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2012

The program offers great flexibility for working or interning students. It is a professional-oriented program, with many amenities to help with professional development in addition to academic development.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2007

George Washington University is the perfect choice for someone interested in making an impact through policy, science, engineering or any other field with the nation's capital as your playground. If you want an isolated campus, there are plenty of other options, but GW provides endless real-world work/internship/education opportunities. The GW brand is strong and growing.
