The Urban Policy Analysis program at The New School is a wonderful program that has provided me with the foundation to exceed in the policy field. I am more than halfway through my first semester and can say with confidence that I am beyond impressed with the curriculum and experiential aspects of the program. It has reinforced my interest in policy and I am extremely excited for policy lab next semester where I will have the opportunity to work with actual clients.

My graduate program provides a lot of support with faculty. And everyone genuinely cares about you and tour overall experience in the program of your choice. The overall atmosphere of the New School is refreshing. The only con I have is my financial aid.

The New School attracts a culturally diverse, driven, and compassionate group. The students are wonderful people and bring a breadth of experiences to the table. However, there is not a lot of ideological diversity--we question capitalism a lot here, that's no surprise. The faculty are generally quite accessible and very knowledgeable in their fields. The amount of activities, events, and opportunities to engage in impactful projects on campus is incredible. However, living in New York is hideously expensive. Academically, some core courses are really poorly designed and/or taught by inexperienced PhD students. Areas to study on campus are usually very crowded and the computers/printers don't function very well. Career services offers a lot, but the quality of workshops and individual feedback depends on the staff person you're working with.

Pros: excellent Faculty and curriculum, good institutional financial aid options, friendly environment and accessible, interesting location in NYC, online learning is effective Cons: tuition is quite high, the Libraries could have more diverse content, grad coursework is pretty heavy to combine with a job

The New School for Public Engagement is a great place for graduate study. If you are willing to put in the work and put yourself out there then I can't imagine a better environment for you. Faculty and staff are helpful, approachable and accessible. I have had a couple of average classes but I think that was because I choose the wrong classes. It seems quite easy to get good grades. New York is expensive.

I absolutely loved attending this school. 98% of the teachers are amazing. I recommended the school for my husband and he is now enrolled. He also has become a huge fan of the school. They provided ample support to their students from academics to employment assistance. They provide lots of social activities, stress relief painting and massage sessions, mid night breakfasts during exam times. I got amazing training to reenter the workforce in my new career. I have nothing but complements for this school. I am going to law school in the fall. I would go to law school at The New School if they had one.
