"The experience that I have had thus far at Harvard Graduate School of Education has been incredible. Highlights so far have been the availability of Professor's, the community of learners who I am surrounded by, and the message of inclusively that is being both talked about and acted upon consistently. I recommend this program to anyone considering a Master's in Education and look very forward to next semester!"

"The classes were fantastic and really geared towards teaching us to how to develop, perform, and present research. Great preparation for a career in academia or industry. I would definitely encourage people to take advantage of all the resources available. It's the type of program where it's easy for people to show up for class without really getting involved, but you miss out on so many great opportunities when you do that."

  • Degree: Performing Arts
"My specific degree is in Voice and Speech Pedagogy. Across the world, the American Repertory Theater Institute for Advanced Theater Training, was one of very few programs that fit my interests and what I was looking to study in graduate school. Based on my current experience in the program, I would highly recommend this program at Harvard University."

  • Degree: Architecture
"I am enrolled in the Master of Architecture II, which is post professional degree program. The school offers a variety of opportunities, including exhibitions, public lectures, publications, and workshops. The five-story open studio space is a very attractive learning environment, where everyone can see each other and what are being produced. The sharing of physical space and the visibility of various productions through all disciplines give good inspirations and enhance productive energy. I highly recommend the program to those who have a strong passion for practicing in the field of design."

"Great if you know exactly what you want to get out of it. Don't go in with no plan. Scholarships and needs-based aid is definitely there, as are ample networking opportunities. Academic advising is very hit or miss, and it really depends on who your advisor is."

"Harvard was a very useful and instrumental stepping stone in furthering my academic and career goals. My degree afforded me the ability to get a job in my field of study immediately upon graduation.

"The Harvard University network is incredibly powerful. To be able to access the alumni and faculty of the school is the most powerful resource I will take away from the program. Additionally, intellectual stimulation from incredible classmates and world renown faculty make this school unbeatable. Financial aid support was poor. However, I must admit that every dollar I spent on my education and interest on my student loans....were worth it! The quality of the program is second to none."

"Harvard was a fantastic place to meet other students who are passionate and committed to what they do and what they care about. Those relationships remain the best in my life, and push me to new levels in my own work. The institution itself is relatively hands-off, however, meaning little direct mentorship and/or close relationships with professors."

"It is the best school in the country. Something for everyone -- if you don't like it, you're doing it wrong. Extremely interesting and rewarding classes, great location, housing setup is amazing. Can't speak highly enough of the College."

"Students here are strong, and the program is flexible. Basically the real requirements are qualifying exams, teaching and dissertation. If you are strong, then you are guaranteed to proper here since faculty members here are also very strong. If you are not strong enough, the flexibility of the program might also mean a lack of guidance, and you should try harder to navigate yourself."
