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.

Hunter College is a great school to attend, but don't expect much support from Financial Aid or Student Services. Thanks to the lack of the right information from advisement I'm now taking CLEP exams to make up for credits that I WAS TOLD I DID NOT NEED. They really need to learn more communication between their offices and make sure students get the right info. I received my BA from Hunter and is now pursuing my Masters there, as a Grad student I feel there is more support but from past experience I do my own research as well to make sure I wont have any more issues down the road.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2011

Hunter may not be at the top of the list of prestigious grad math programs. But much of the faculty is responsive in a way that is quite unusual for graduate programs, and arguably even more unusual in the field. It is possible to get a tremendous amount out of this program if one takes full advantage of what professors have to offer. It is probably one of the few MA programs in mathematics in which professors make a real effort to include students in research and publication.

Degree: Social Sciences

The programs was tough to get into but the experience overall was worth it. Hunter SSSW helps you become the kind of person you need to be to succeed as a social worker.
