Student & Graduate Reviews

3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program was great. The department chair, however, was incredibly rude and unresponsive. So many difficulties could have been avoided if he was the least bit supportive and responsive when it came to problems with class registration, etc. I never felt like I could come to anyone in that department for support, and I spoke with many others who felt the same exact way. The professors are great however, and you'll learn a lot.

Education is one thing that no one can take away from you.

Degree: Communications

CUNY Brooklyn College was an okay school. For the money it is a great affordable education option, but given more time to save, I would have chose to go elsewhere.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2007

Brooklyn College is a fantastic university with great professors and a very competitive environment. The campus is beautiful also. My only problem was parking, and I think it will be even better if they develop a better lot.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018

CUNY Brooklyn College is a small, but beautiful campus. Its graduate program for International Affairs offers a comprehensive curriculum, great professors, and relatively small class sizes that allow your professors to better be familiar with their students. There are a lot of opportunities and support offered for students to be able to work on the research skills, critical analysis, and obtaining internships.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2009

I feel that Brooklyn college is a good school with a big beautiful campus. However I feel like I wasted 30k on my masters.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

Best decision I could've made! Never have I seen a great college education such as Brooklyn College. Professors are always supportive and helpful, you never fail to feel welcomed. Their nutrition program is one of the best and respected among all the CUNY institutions. The campus 26-acre (110,000 m2) will always be the best thing there, away from the noise of the city .It is known for its beauty, and is often regarded as "the poor man's Harvard" because of its low tuition and reputation for respectable academics.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Brooklyn College's MFA in Performing Arts Management is fantastic, but it's not for everyone. Cohorts are really small, which means you get a personalized learning experience and get the opportunity to create really tight bonds with your classmates. This also means you have to be really present and engaged in every class, which makes it a very intense experience. All the instructors are accomplished professionals in the field, and classes are generally held in their workplace, which means you get the chance to get first hand insight into the world of the performing arts of New York City. Lastly, one of the key advantages of this program is the 4-semester internship requirement. Unlike other similar programs, where internships are optional, or only one semester, at Brooklyn College, taking an internship is required throughout the two years. This means you get the opportunity to apply all the knowledge and skills acquired in class on a real-world setting. Why is it not for everyone then? This program is not designed for an already-working professional. There is no flexibility in course schedules, and the class/internship requirements leave no time to have any other jobs. You're either in in 110% or you're out.
