"Overall, poor program with low quality faculty and resources. Courses not taught by respectable PhDs. Not a good learning environment, inexperienced faculty in policy, and costly with low return. Poorly run and managed program. Better schools to choose."

"I am an international student, so my experience does not reflect that of a US citizen. The Josef Korbel school is a fantastic school. Its professors, instructors, and admin staff are all of an incredibly high quality. The best piece of advice I can give is that I would chose this school again given the choice. The main cons of the school for me have been: its location vis-a-vis networking (Denver is great but it cannot compete with schools on the East coast for proximity to organizations); career advice for international students is less useful than for domestic students (that is likely always the case); and, although a thesis option is offered, it seems neither well thought out nor well supported. This said, my experience working with professors/instructors has been overwhelming positive."

"The pros of my program are really the professors and various campus groups. Through my involvement with student groups, I learned some of my most valuable lessons and made lasting relaitonships. The biggest weakness in my program is that it was not as academically challenging as I would have liked. I came from a very rigorous undergraduate and expected to be challenged here to the same extent that I was there. In some ways I was challenged to improve my quality of work (better sources, more condensed writing, etc.). But, overall, I will leave feeling like there is still so much more I wanted to learn and did not."
