Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my graduate program is furthering my knowledge in the ever-growing field of education. There are many methods of teaching especially in the field of mathematics. I always find myself fascinated in methods that I have never encountered before. I believe the cons of any graduate program would be the cost. Being a student who just received his Bachelors Degree in Education and already burdened with loans, the cost does put a mental strain when seeing the large amount in the end.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

As a student in the School Cousneling Program, I feel that Brooklyn College truly has all the amenities needed to help me reach my goals of becoming a licensed certified counselor. Computers and Library are extremely accessible, with ample printers and wifi use in the buildings. Professors are also accessible, with e-mails, phone numbers, and office hours readily available. I enjoy going to class and working with my fellow cohorts, because the atmosphere is pleasant, open, and diverse. I always feel comfortable walking to and from class as well in the surrounding areas. The campus is beautiful!

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2017

The nutrition graduate program is a hard program which teaches its students a wide background about nutrition. The work that you put in is definitely worth it.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2016

Brooklyn College is about to open an investment academy that will enable the selected students to run a hedge fund with real money, which is a great opportunity for students in business programs. However, it is too bad that we don't have enough courses for those who are specializing in finance to choose from.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

My program, probably like most MA programs, really depends on how much you put into it. If you are the type of student willing to go out there and make connections, form relationships with faculty, and be the main advocate in ensuring you get something out of the program, you will benefit from this program. If you aren't this type of person, it probably isn't for you. All in all, it is an affordable Psychology program with small classes and good faculty. Could definitely use some improvements, hopefully those will be coming soon.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

My program is Master of Science in Business Administration: Global Business and Finance. I am an international student and this semester is my first. The International Student Services office was very helpful and the process of preparing all necessary documents went smoothly. I like variety of courses offered. Professors are qualified and helpful. Campus and all facilities are very comfortable. There is anything you may need. This college offers the great value for money.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Brooklyn College has an exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable staff. The workload is not overly strenuous and most of the work that is required is relevant to the work that I currently do.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The MFA in Television Production Program at Brooklyn College was one of my top-choices along with MFA in Film Production at NYU and SVA. Having studied at Brooklyn College for a semester and having collaborated with kids from both NYU and SVA, I can say that the program I've chosen is the best one so far. And it is mainly due to two factors: faculty and technology. The faculty comprises incredible people who are professionals in their field and are always eager to share their knowledge with you. I've learnt a lot from them and I know that in two years' time I will be a professional filmmaker thanks to them. What is important is that they are all active as filmmakers, so they know what is happening in the industry and give us the latest updates on all the trends. Brooklyn College TV Center is known for its outstanding facilities. As graduate students, we have a 24-hour access to the studio itself, editing labs, radio stations and equipment. It all allows us to produce whatever we want whenever we want, so I've been working on many productions outside the program, thanks to this access. As for the cons, I can only name one: lack of equipment, meaning that you have to reserve the best cameras (Canon Mark III), or lights, mics, etc, a week in advance, or they will be taken. But that shortage of equipment takes place more at the end of semester when everyone is engaged in long final project productions. All in all, I love this program and I will definitely recommend it to the incoming students.
