Boston University is an institution that challenged me to explore my boundaries. I participated in the study abroad program and lived outside of the US for the first time in my life. When I got back, I pursued research opportunities, became an RA, and got involved in the Boston communities. I believe that BU helped me greatly in my path towards medicine. Since graduating, I took two gap years and worked as a research assistant in the Boston-based laboratory. I have since moved on to becoming a medical student.
BYU is an amazing school. The environment and atmosphere is amazing. It was extremely difficult. I would say that it is just as hard as an Ivy League. The professors and staff care deeply about their students. They are always willing and able to help. I am grateful for all that I learned not only in my classes, but also from my professors. The Career Services helped me with my resume and how to act in an interview. I could have gone in for even more help. My teachers were more than willing to help me with things outside the classroom such as help studying for the GRE and help reviewing my Statement of Purpose for Graduate School. Because of their help, I was accepted to George Washington University and Boston University which are the number 14 and number 10 programs respectively for my program. Brigham Young University is also extremely cheap when compared to other schools (such as Boston University where I will be going for graduate school) but it does not give a cheap education. I would recommend attending BYU to any future student!
After reviewing a number of universities that offered Master's degrees in Criminal Justice (CJ), I selected Boston University - Metropolitan College. My reasons were many: 1) The recruiters were extremely helpful, and provided answers to all questions I had. They were extremely enthusiastic and encouraging. 2) Review of the available video testimonials from graduate students in the CJ program were very convincing of the many benefits of doing a Master's in CJ at BU. 3) The administrative people were extraordinarily helpful, and informative in not only answering my questions, but stepping me through the admissions process. 4) Throughout the program, all faculty members went above and beyond in assisting students through the 10 courses. 5) Regular contact with other students throughout the degree proved beneficial, in learning more about specific course materials that went above and beyond course content. All in all, a great experience. I highly recommend Boston University for anyone considering an online degree in Criminal Justice.
This is an excellent school. It fully prepared me and assisted me in finding a job soon after graduation. While there, I was surrounded by dedicated staff that helped me grow. The curriculum was challenging, but I always came out of classes feeling I had learned important content and material. The school itself is expanding. They are constantly building and improving the campus... not just during parent weekend! The school also has a strong international presence in its student body, as well as many study abroad options. Very happy with my time here!
Great university with some amazing professors and research opportunities. The university as a whole can be large and overwhelming, but the students, faculty, and staff at Sargent College were incredible and created a supportive community.
Great, supportive community and lots of practical training.
At the time of my enrollment Boston University had a great program for International Affairs students. My professors all had a diverse array of experience and knowledge, which made my learning experience all the richer. I just wish BU invested a little more in its student body. Career Services seemed weak or generally uninterested in pre-graduation advisement and BU seemed to care more about its real estate ventures than spending money on good professors who care about student outcomes and services for students.
I decided to go back to school because I wanted to change careers. I looked into a few online graduate programs for Criminal Justice and eventually decided on Boston University. I was hesitant at first, especially because the person I spoke with about the program and enrollment was not really affiliated with Boston University. I continued to speak to the representative and explore options. Turns out, everything went well. When I attended, the courses were 7-weeks, you took 2 courses per semester, and you were placed into a cohort group and cycled through classes in a predetermined manner. I did not mind this because registration was easy. The courses were taught be actual Boston University faculty and teaching assistants. All of my classes were well structured with clear deadlines and expectations, provided recorded video lectures, audio lectures, and PowerPoint presentations. The professors were responsive and helpful. The support staff around the campus were easy to work with as well. The program went quickly and I really extended myself sometimes while balancing full-time work and full-time personal events. Some classes required a lot of work, but it was manageable, and made me better and managing my personal time.
Attending Boston University was integral in my ability to teach students well. It is an academic program of high caliber and the professors truly care about their students. The program really prepares students for being in the classroom by introducing them to classrooms from their first year in the program. Students experience all levels of education: elementary, middle, and secondary. The classes focus on preparing curriculum.
Attending Boston University was an excellent experience. There is truly something for everyone there and first-class facilities. The living and dining options along with post-college resources were second to none. I have never met someone who attended who did not like their experience.
