Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
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.

I don't have anything really to say about the program as a whole since I have just began the program itself.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall a great program that is terribly underfunded. Not their fault, it is a city school and must compete for tax dollars. But the lack of funds can be felt. Despite that, the faculty and education is pretty top notch.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The school counseling graduate program at Brooklyn college is one of great passion. I would personally have to say that I love how supportive the professors are. They are very passionate about what they do and why they do it. Their professionalism and enthusiasm is portrayed within their lectures and class activities. The coursework is heavy but I am confident that by the end of the program; I will be prepared for any challenge the school counseling field may have in store for me.

The CUNY system offers a great opportunity for independent students looking to get a degree! I would recommend Brooklyn College to anyone that is willing to apply themselves and is motivated to learn.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Brooklyn College might be a good college for people to attend who live in the area. Living in another boro makes it very difficult for me to make it to class. If it comes to a CUNY education I would choose the university that is closest to you.
