George Mason University Graduate Reviews
I love the professors in the Advanced Studies of Teaching and Learning program as they are committed to meeting learners where they are. Of course there are project and writing expectations to follow but in terms of design of a project or being open to individual suggestions-they are the best! This is adult learning after all.
Affordable compared to other 4-year universities in Virginia. I wish there were more housing options on and near campus that were reasonably priced. As a graduate student, the most affordable option was to commute from my parent's home an hour away from campus.
George Mason is a large school with sometimes larger classes, and I know that can be a deterrent for many people. My advice would be to put yourself out there and get to know someone in your class, or make connections with your professors. These bonds can be valuable throughout your college career as you look towards the next step.
