Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2014

Hunter College's Masters in TESOL program is well-regarded in the field for good reason. The professors are not only excellent teachers and mentors, they are also actively engaged in classroom-based research. My colleagues in the program were bright, collaborative, and passionate about teaching English language learners.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I am really enjoying my experience at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. The professors definitely push you, but it's definitely for your benefit. The atmosphere of East Harlem definitely adds to the appeal of the school. The area is very safe and I feel comfortable walking by myself during the day or night. The quality of education you receive here is excellent.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The special education program has a great faculty, who makes themselves avaliable to their student. The professors are very knowledgeable and really attempt to help their students wit hands on experience. Small classroom size allows for teaching to be more direct and personal. Cons of the program would include that professors can be very vague when explaining assignments. Different advisors provide different recommendations on future classes.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter is very supportive. Faculty and administration are transparent at the school and social justice for marginalized populations is one of the mantras. These facts alone empower me as a student preparing for a career in social work. However the workload, like any graduate program, is quite overbearing. I did a group project on the student populations and it was found average pages of recommended and required reading for students are 900 -1000 a week for the first semester students! That is intense! On the other hand, it is very easy to travel to the school and it is very accessible for those with disabilities. This is hands down the most affordable MSW accredited program in New York City. I also love the pass fail option here. This way I put less pressure on the letter grade and greater focus on the quality of my work. Silberman also teaches students to be mindful practitioners which is a life long skill. I do wish there were more historical components in the curriculum however. This way, students who are not aware of why oppressed people have been forced into such conditions, can gather a stronger understanding of the different -isms that unfortunately divide and keep people conquered up to this day.
