Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2015

Columbia Journalism School is focused not just on giving you theoretical knowledge, but also 'real life' application. And being in New York means there is news happening literally on our doorstep every day.

Columbia is a world class school in a world class city. I hope it's going to give me an education as impressive as it's reputation.

CUJ is exactly as advertised: rigorous. But they are the best at what they do.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2014

Columbia University is a great place to study Journalism. The course work is challenging, yet very rewarding. The teachers are professionals in the field and they are a great resource for students. The University itself is in a safe area of New York City and close to the 1 train. However, I do believe that the University's faculty could be more diverse.

The course is competitive, but comprehensive. It enables a student journalist to graduate with all the skills required in the field of journalism today.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is definitely everything that you want out of an MA in Biology. The faculty are extremely supportive, the ability to connect to other institutions in the city is extremely helpful, and the program itself is structured in such a way that the work load is difficult, but relevant. Unfortunately, the program does not provide very good financial aid to their MA students. However, it makes up for it by making it extremely easy to find opportunities for grants, internships, scholarships, and more. I love this program and am excited to be here!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Having gone straight from undergraduate in to Columbia University, I have noticed that it is a great place to kick-off your post-graduate career as the school provides many options and support with respect to finding jobs. Additionally, given the environment and city in which it is located, the student is provided with evidence of what is being covered before their eyes. It is a great place to learn more about your study.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The Mailman School of Public Health is definitely one of the top tier programs in the country and I can tell from the quality of their educational programming even after just one month. The only issue really is the cost of the tuition and living expenses can be really prohibitive. Also the first semester it is recommended not to work due to the course load, which could hurt people who really need to work.
