Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

So far in my graduate experience the pros of my graduate program is the education I am receiving is rewarding. This is my first semester in graduate school and it has been a wonderful experience I am receiving almost everything I need. One con I think my graduate program needs to work on is providing enough writing tutoring.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2014

I am attending as part of the NYC Teaching Fellows, so my experience is a little bit different than the average student. Most of the professors I have encountered are very intelligent and have a lot to offer, but the workload can be quite considerable. The administration can also be very difficult to deal with because a lot of the time, it feels like there is conflicting information. The location is great for grabbing a bite to eat before class or heading to Central Park when it's warm, though it does take a while to get to/from the West side. I learn a lot from my classmates because they are such a diverse group of people, and I've met some of my best friends in the group. Overall, I feel like I've learned a lot in this program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College is a great program. The student body is extremely diverse. Our location within the community of East Harlem is perfect. The professors are excellent and care about the students. The classes offered are fascinating. There are on campus groups to join and participate in weekly meetings/workshops to further our education. The library has endless resources and the staff there and at the Writing Center are so willing to assist students. I love my graduate school. However, there is always room for improvement. The administration is not best because they do not always relay crucial information accurately or in a timely manner, which is frustrating for many students.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Hunter's Masters in Adolescent Education in English is unique because your coursework is divided between two areas--pedagogy and curriculum courses in the Education department, and graduate level English literature courses in the English department. I did not find other programs that offer this many courses in your subject matter, especially at such a low cost. Hunter has an amazing network in order to help you search for jobs after graduation. My experience with the program so far is that they respect each student's time and that the courses are appropriately challenging. Navigating the bureaucracy of the NY Department of Education remains difficult. Hunter should try to continue improving its resources for students on how to register at the Department of Education, get fingerprinted, and get certified, since these processes can often be confusing.

Pros: great facilities, diverse courses and student body, relatively affordable, fair grading, more progressive than other social work schools in NYC. Cons: location is not very central, you must specialize in your first year.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros to my graduate program are the variety of topics learned on education and feeling prepared for NYC public schools because of the large range of information being taught and the cons would be not having a class on classroom management which is the number one issue for first year teachers and non creative class sessions, power point is not creative.
