Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate student experience has been exactly what I desired. I have taken interesting courses and have met classmates who are peers in the pursuit of a degree in Public Administration. The varying perspectives during class discussion have added to the classroom education.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the pros of my graduate program include knowledgeable professors and several multimedia and writing courses. One of the cons of the program include tuition, for the 10-month program, is about $55,000 excluding housing, food and books.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the courses and "the core" education that came along with the MPH program. The professors and administration are always helpful and eager to support the students. The only con of the school is the cost of living in New York City.
