Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Counseling

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

The Sociology Master's Program at Queens College has top-level instructors and motivated students that give me the drive to excel. The only drawback is that the college does not have a rail system nearby. The only means of public transportation to the school is via bus.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

The professors in the history department are passionate in their areas of study and it transmits itself onto the students taking the classes. The professors are approachable and reasonable. The coursework is reasonable and it makes an important part of the material to be learned in class. The master's program offers two tracks for students to take: the research track and the professional track. The professional track is meant for those people who are working and are looking to end their education with a master's degree. The research track is intended for those students who are looking to attain a PhD.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2012

Queens College MFA program in Creative Writing and Translation is led by a great director who cares about the students and wants them to succeed. The faculty are very friendly always willing to help. Overall the environment at Queens College is nice, the campus is beautiful. Classes are held at night and are mainly workshop based. If you are interested in fiction this may not be the program for you as its really geared towards poetry and translation, however you will still learn a great deal of information depending on what professor you take. Workshop can vary from fun to cut throat but overall there is a family aspect that come with being a MFA student at Queens College.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I am thrilled with my graduate program! While other Speech-Language Pathology programs are very research focused, something that is unique to QC's program is that it is very mentor-ship based. Because the faculty emphasizes case-based learning, the graduate students will each have 4-6 clients that they treat along with a licensed supervisor per semester. This provides great experience and will make us much more competent clinicians!

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros for this program is the classes they provide for you to take and the way the program is set up for you to obtain your masters and certification for teaching. Also, this program gives you the option to still work during the day because most of the classes are online or in the evening. The only con I would have to say is that not all the professors are role model teachers and don't make you feel as though teaching is the best.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The Master’s Degree in Urban Affairs offered by the Department of Urban Studies is both challenging and rewarding. Small class sizes encourage group discussions about issues in urban society. An orientation was held in the summer prior to starting this program in Fall 2013 where students and faculty were able to meet and get to know each other prior to the start of classes. Bonds were made between classmates and instructors that create a fun academic environment. This program is highly recommended to all those looking to pursue a future in government, urban planning, and non profit work.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program offers great courses at flexible hours. The professors are knowledgeable and experienced and always willing to meet with students individually to discuss classwork and career based questions. The workload is reasonable and prepares students for future work needs. Unfortunately there are not many financial aid options for graduate students.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The classes in my program are taught by knowledgeable, supportive teachers with years of experience in the field. Class size can be a bit large at times, so it's harder to get individual attention.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2013

You get what you put into the program. The faculty are great. The career center is not very helpful. You'll have to make connections and use them to help you land a job after graduation.
