Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Academics Rating

As a grad student in the Annenberg School of Journalism and Communication, class sizes are limited to small sizes and vary depending on the subject matter. My program allows me to take classes in any of the schools on campus, which broadens my skillset and opens me to even more potential employers. Professors have both academic and real-world experience, and in my classes, have been very friendly and personable.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

Great academic level, in this case the reason I applied to this school was because I find a program that is not commonly offered in other schools, in that sense in terms of program content this school fits really well my expectations. I still can´t talk about classes since my program starts next month but I know the proffessors are really good and as usual a good deal of the apprenticeship will be in hands of the student.
