Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The program for the Masters degree is a full time program with a considerable amount of workload. It's price is reasonable and affordable with assistance. Since it's a full time program there are limitations on working, if not a part time, while going through the program. This is not an issue since it's addressed at the time of the interview with faculty and program director.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

I really like the museum studies/ art history program at CCNY. The professors are knowledgeable and I like that they are constantly challenging me to open my mind and broaden my horizons. There are some downsides to attending a school in the CUNY system and that is mainly on the administrative end. In regards to financial aid, the CUNY system is truly a joke. I have attended CUNY schools for my entire academic career (associates, bachelors, masters) and I have never been treated the way the they have treated me over the years. Future students should be aware that they it will take weeks to get the outcome that you desire. Other than that, I have been enjoying the education I am receiving.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program at City College offers wonderful courses that are aligned with the New York State guidelines to work within the Department of Education. The professors are or once were New York City teachers and provide a lot of support in and out of the classroom. Cons about any CUNY school is the administration, it can be very difficult to discuss financial aid, technological issues and/or with an advisor. Overall, I would recommend this program to anyone.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The Art Education program at CUNY is like no other. The personalized attention, the creative lectures and assignments as well as the talented and experienced staff is unmatched as far as other programs in NYC, which that is a bold statement considering the competition. I chose CUNY due to it's innovative program and class schedules offerings for us future educators of NY. We are learning cutting edge lessons with using modern day technology combined with traditional artistic techniques. We are also learning a great deal about how to advocate for an area of study that is constantly fighting for its right in children's futures.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program of history at City College of New York contained a intellectually and culturally diverse group of students with an objective to enrich our community with their insights and humanity. Likewise, the commitment and generous support of faculty mentors who encourage graduate students to push themselves to reach their academic potential was a benefit to any learning experience. My time as a grad student at CCNY has allowed me to reflect on my privilege as a U.S. college student and researcher, and it brought me face to face with the legacies of historical research that was designed to facilitate colonization and the spread of “modernity.” This experience solidified my desire to go on to doctoral school and become a professional scholar so that I can continue to engage deeply in research. Our program (like so many other graduate programs) was emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausting. Living 2 hours away from school in NYC made commuting a living hell. On top of this, many of the history students enrolled in the Masters degree program at CCNY are working class or on their way to finishing their teaching degrees. As a result not only were all the Grad course after 6 pm, but classes were always divided into those that came to improve their knowledge and those that came to pass. Often times, only 30% of the classroom was truly engaged with the readings and the research.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2015

Very good program for people that are not genius writers, but still have something to offer. The rest of the writing programs in NYC all have this elitist attitude, and except about 5 applicants a years into their programs. CCNY still opens the program to over a hundred. This is by far the biggest positive of the place. The program is strife with negatives, but this program is good if you can't get in anywhere else, and you are looking for something cheap. There is not much camaraderie, and little to to no networking with the industry either, as NYU or Hunter may have.

There is a community there to help you. Most come out working professionals with opportunities. I never feel alone in the process. I look forward to going to class.
