Demanding and intense program but knowledgable
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really this program is three years of study crammed into two years and the demand is intense. I was unsuspecting of summer expenses for classes and the workload, but I have been able to manage and got my first ever 4.0 this year!

Years filled with inquiry, wonderment and excellence.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My time at Eastern has been filled with wonderful professors, eye opening work and placements which have deepened my understanding of the field. While I have learned so much throughout my program, I still do not feel fully prepared to enter the field, which is why I have chosen to apply for a Masters program.
