All materials that you could possibly need to study are provided for you! Professors are very straight forward with the material that they expect you to know and that they will test you on. They are not trying to trick you in tests, they want to truly test your knowledge to the best of your capability. They cover the material at a very reasonable pase and try their best for you to understand and remain engaged.

My experience so far has been fantastic. The students and faculty are easy to engage with, passionate about serving others, and living in New Orleans has been an amazing opportunity. There are many organizations and social clubs that graduate students can get involved in, and several ways to get involved in the community. What I would like to see change at Tulane is the treatment of the downtown medical campus. Student housing is minimal and there could be more options for dining and places to study for students who take classes at the medical campus.
The courses were rigorous, but professors were very supportive and willing to work with students to ensure their success. The grading scale is skewed in a way that students have to work much harder in order to receive high remarks in their courses. Work/life balance can be difficult to maintain at times when balancing field practicums and courses together, but professors understand that so assignments are intentional and focused.
