Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2011

The classes were interesting, and taught me a lot about statistics and health research, but job prospects aren't good if you don't have significant public health experience.

I feel that the program offers a well rounded faculty and overall program. It's applicable for many different types of students on different career paths and most importantly- the value is incredible. Very affordable way to get a Graduate education.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the program are that the faculty that teach have worked in the field. What you learn in the classroom you will see out in field placement. A con about this program is the seats available to prospective students. Many qualified students get turned down because of the limited seating.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2013

I love this early childhood education program. I think it teaches you real life problems and experience. There are a few exceptions though- with certain professors and classes seeming useless and not approaching the program the way the rest of the staff and students do. Overall, I love this program!

Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College so far has been a great experience. Definitely a lot of work, but so far it's been worth it.

One of the Best MSW programs in New York City and it's the most affordable. The professors are great and helpful and I'm enjoying the anti-oppressive curriculum.

Hunter College has some of the best professors I've ever experienced in my academic career. They are passionate, knowledgeable, caring and work hard to prepare us for our careers as future teachers. I couldn't have chosen a better college to pursue my degree.
