Hunter's Urban Planning Graduate Program is great! Great professors and very interesting and current issues being discussed. The program is very challenging as well as enlightening. Hunter is a great school and its affordability is unmatched.

The professors at Hunter are the real reason why you would go there. Every professor I have had was willing to put in the extra time and effort to make sure everyone's needs were met. We always walked out of a course smarter than when we walked in.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College is one of the most competitive social work programs in NYC. In my year, 38% of applicants were accepted. That said, the students in this program are very smart and full of incredible life experiences. I often learn as much from my peers as I do my teachers. Students do not receive letter grades (unless they opt for that) and instead get Pass, Fail, or Honors grades. This allows me to focus less on the grade and more on the content of the classes.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

My program proved to be efficient and convenient for my lifestyle as I work full time. The only con I can say is that I don't feel that some the courses were found wanting.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The Public Health program is a great value and the teachers are very invested in the students. However since most students work full-time it is difficult to form that sense of community.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I am excited to begin my academic career at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College this fall (2014). My experiences thus far have been nothing but pleasant. The field work education curriculum is a wonderful asset/pro of the schools, and there are no cons related to this graduate program.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Honestly speaking, I do believe the School Counseling program at Hunter College is a good program to attend. Like all schools, the program has its faults, however, most professors are extremely helpful and provide students with information that we can use in our future employment opportunities.

It's a good school but the administration needs a reform.
