Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

As a graduate student I have not seen any available scholarships. The workload can be demanding at times. In my opinion we need more support as students.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I think as students, we are very fortunate to have the staff and professors to lecture and teach us. Some of them are extremely knowledgeable about their course material, and they assist if students run into any problems.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe that I truly made the right choice in attending the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. To date, I have only taken one non-matriculated class and the professor was wonderful, understanding and his expertise in the subject was amazing. The faculty staff of the Graduate Admissions office is very informative and attentive to current students and new-coming students. I look forward to attending more classes this fall and obtaining my Masters in Social Work.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Hunter has been a rewarding experience compared to my first Masters program. Above all, the faulty are the best asset in my program. They are kind and supportive and willing to answer questions to help you make decisions about your future. They are also very understanding and flexible if you are attending part-time and juggling a full-time career.

The school is a great opportunity in the heart of New York City. You get the opportunity to learn from career professionals with experience in urban education. You also get the benefit of observation in the wide variety of school in New York City.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is wonderful in that it gets you to think. We are constantly being challenge about the way we think and interact with the world. We are taught to question our beliefs which help us to be the best social workers we can be.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2009

The graduate program in Special Education at Hunter College has a wide range of positive aspects. Many of the professors have years of experience in teaching college students, as well as their area of expertise. They make themselves available for their students through email, telephone, and office visits. The curriculum is rigorous and does an excellent job of providing students with the knowledge and experience they need on the job. In particular, Hunter's unique Learning Lab, in the second year of the program, gives students firsthand experience teaching a child. The Hunter student works with the child for an entire year to assess them, create lesson plans for them, and to hone their teaching craft in a real-life setting. There were few cons that I found in the Hunter College Special Education program. Perhaps I would have liked a wider range of elective courses to choose from; the course load was rather fixed and did not allow for much choice. Overall, I would highly recommend this program to anyone pursuing a graduation degree in Special Education. It is an excellent value- affordable price, experienced faculty, and sold curriculum all make the degree what it is.
