Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

Lehman College is an excellent place to be. The Master of Social Work Faculty and staff especially are supportive, dedicated and committed to impacting knowledge to students who come to the school. courses and classes are very structured, and there are flexible class schedules to suit everyone's needs. students are prepared adequately for the job market even before completing school. I have truly enjoyed my academic experience at Lehman College and would recommend it to everyone who wishes to apply to college.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my program are for one, it is small so professor to student attention is very high. Everybody knows everyone by name and come from a variety of backgrounds. Also, being that it is a CUNY school, it is priced less that a private school, which takes away a little burden from loan repayment. Furthermore, it offers a variety of field placement opportunities to really learn your skills.The only con is the location, the school is located in the Bronx and is an hour from my home.

I like that the program is small and the professors are always available to answer any questions and concerns that we have. It is very much like a family atmosphere.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The Master of Social Work program is geared towards the Urban Environment. Social workers that are going to practice in New York, will most likely be working in an urban environment. This is what makes the program unique and beneficial. It prepares you for the community, people, environment we intend to work with. The professors have all worked in New York, understand the systems, the population and the environment. The professors and staff are always willing to answer questions, meet with students, discuss concerns. They courses are run as hands on, and interactive adding an additional layer to the learning. The set-up is very conducive to student participation. The campus itself is small and contained. The school caters to undergraduates and graduates, and thus the offices and other facilities are open until late. The campus is well kept, well lit and the environment is friendly and safe. The departments offer a lot of opportunities for students to meet often, in order to socialize. Lehman College is a great school and I am extremely happy of having selected this school to complete my graduate degree after having graduated 16 years ago from college.

The Social Work program at Lehman College has no cons to it. The pros are endless because this program has allowed me to pursue the dream of being the servant leader I have always known that I could be. The faculty staff know you by name and are genuinely interested in the well-being of their students. We are not just a number, but apart of the Lehman College social work extended family.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The internship prepares you for life post graduation and the student body is very ethnically diverse. However, the program is not very competitive and does not offer too many opportunities for scholarship or financial aid.

Throughout all the CUNY schools, Lehman is one of the best campuses I've seen. Not only is the campus amazing but so is its staff. Teacher's have a genuine passion to see students excel and succeed. I would recommend Lehman's Social Work program to anyone!
