Degree: Teaching

This program is affordable and accessible to working professionals; however, it is a bit unorganized.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great school for those (like me!) changing careers. Faculty works with students to accommodate schedules. The most valuable aspect of this program is the "real world" experience (there are several internships in a classroom environment).

You get what you pay for at City University. It's cheaper than similar graduate programs in the area, but administration is unorganized and advisors are virtually useless. However, you come out with an employable degree and a solid base of knowledge and experience (and less debt!).

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty is not only knowledgeable about their respective fields, but they are supportive and encouraging as well, and seem to genuinely desire to serve their students. The campus is beautiful, with access to a huge network of resources and private, and very quite, study rooms. Students have a professional demeanor, which is established by the professionalism of the staff, including students who are employed by the university. I highly recommend this school.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

Pro-Overall City University is an amazing school. the faculty and staff are very helpful outside the classroom. The professors are very enaged and helpful with the students. Con. It is a private college so tuition is higher than public colleges. Other than that nothing negative to say about the school.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2016

Coming back to school has been an experience. My lifestyle has changed greatly since I tool my undergrad courses over a decade ago. City U has made the transition manageable. The teachers are all responsive and helpful if I have questions. The material is challenging, but that should be expected at this level. The hardest part is self discipline. I suppose that is the challenge with any on-line courses.
