Student & Graduate Reviews

3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

I love this program, the curriculum and everything about it. I do dislike the fact that the technology can be quite difficult at times either due to the older computers or simply the internet not being up to par with what is necessary for us to have a good work environment. The professors are so easily accessible and easy to talk to. This program is well rounded, hands-on and interactive, which is all a plus in my book (despite it's slight technical mishaps).

Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent program with knowledgable professors. CCNY being in Manhattan allows the student to use other resources too for learning purposes. For example, the NYPL in addition to the campus library. There isn't much of a campus life and there aren't enough places to eat near by except corner delis. It's a very urban setting but the school is good and the program is challenging.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is an advanced level in which you get more knowledge of the field you like. but at the same time you should look for the program's length and to which degree it gives you a balanced life if you are married or/and have a job.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2012

Pros: - Studying Urban Design in NYC (What could be better!!!) under one of the best professionals in the industry - Opportunity to travel and design a city in another country - You are exposed to a small group of people from around the world who are hand picked by the professor. You learn a lot from one another. - It is your choice how far you take the program in order to learn more about cities and in the process you learn a lot about yourself. - Great on-campus counseling center. - The program is 10 months - The program is very affordable, especially if you are a NY state resident. Cons: - Career guidance is not so readily available - Although the labs have great resources, they have very odd hours for an Architecture school. Frustrating. - I worked during the entire program, almost full time. Even though I am very proud of myself, it was extremely difficult to do. - Program is more intense during it's 10 month run than perhaps a longer program would be. - The financial aid and bursar's office are absolutely useless. They are extremely frustrating to deal with. - The medical benefits that come with the program are very far from the campus. But, I must say, that even though the medical office environment is very very rough, the medical services were some of the best I've had.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros is that the program professors are very willing to help you.  There is not much diversity in the History classes because of the lack of professors

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

More variety of classes per semester according to the discipline could be a con. Diversity of students and teachers helps keep the atmosphere within the classroom more comfortable.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2015

Pro's are a wonderful close knit community, con's are not having longer classes.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I have found that most secondary education programs offer courses in "teaching" and then offer courses in "subject area." What drew me to the CCNY program was that all course work on how the two intersect.

Professor was very supported and involve. I didn't feel as if I was alone and confused in the program.
