Student & Graduate Reviews

4.7 out of 5 stars
Patrick Mulligan - 3/31/2019
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018
"The political science degree at the College of the Holy Cross is first-rate. The professors are brilliant minds well-respected in their fields, but the benefit of attending a liberal arts institution is the ability for the students to meet with professors face to face. Office hours are often included in the expectation of classes, but are moreso viewed by the student body as important to personal and academic growth. By the time of graduation, each political science student feels accomplished among his classes and close to his professors. The only complaint is the lack of a quantitative major requirement; the theoretical nature of course offerings is good for political theory wonks but for those who wish to apply for graduate programs in political science or public policy may find the theoretical grounding outdated in a modern data-driven field."

"The College of the Holy Cross was a wonderful environment to pursue my BA. The small college allowed for close relationships with faculty and classmates. The coursework was rigorous, but often relevant to current issues so as to prepare students for careers after graduation. The Jesuit values are present in the education, though not imposed upon students. Rather, the environment encourages you to be a "man or woman for others". Upon graduating I felt prepared to succeed, but also confident that I could choose a path which contributes positively to my community."

"Small class sizes mean a lot of attention from professors. That also means you're expected to show up to class and participate in discussions. You'll get a high quality education across the board. Private school means significant student loans so have a financial plan in place when you decide what school to attend."

"Holy Cross provided me with the most incredible academic education, while harboring my growth as an individual. The professors were extremely knowledgable and the classes were thought provoking. If I had to do it over again, there is no doubt in my mind that I would choose Holy Cross."

"Excellent liberal arts college that only teaches undergraduate students. All classes are taught by professors and not teaching assistants. Most classes are under 20 students so you get to know your professors and classmates."
