Degree: Psychology

it's a great school but without a focus on higher levels of education

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I am more than pleased with my School Psychology program and Queens College - CUNY. Aside from the affordability of the graduate program, I have never felt such support from all faculty and peers in a graduate or undergraduate program. There is a lot of work, but because of that I feel prepared to enter the workforce as a School Psychologist. All faculty and students help each other along the way without diluting the education. Also, the campus in general, and the program itself, is not only culturally diverse, but differences are embraced so we can learn from one another and learn to help others in the diverse field of education.

Pros include affordability, student diversity, transportation, and school use of technology. Cons include lack of career support, food choice in the vicinity, and student to faculty communication.

Graduation Year: 2015

So Far, So Good. Queens College is about an Hour outside of Manhattan in the Subway so it's a Commuter College. The value is incredible if your looking to study with the specific teachers that are on the Music Faculty. The student-teacher ratio is pretty good. It is one of the smaller Jazz Studies Masters programs in NYC. The admin/bureaucracy is a little hard to navigate, but they are helpful if you are patient and don't mind going face-to-face to get things done. The computer/email systems seem a bit antiquated.

Graduation Year: 2014

This school is very affordable but you get what you pay for! There is no help, no networking and no mentoring! If you have any questions be prepared to run around the whole school just to be at the same place where you started. I think some of the Proffesor's are well qualified while others you just can not help to wonder how did they get their jobs! If I had a chance to do it all over again I would never even consider Queens college it is very unorganized and I feel that all they want Is my money and do not care if I graduate on time or if I am paying for it on my own! I was very disappointed in my experience here and wouldn't recommend Queens college to my worst enemy!

Professors are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach. Excellent education for cost of tuition.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I wish my graduate program gave me the option of finishing it in 1 year like other graduate schools with a Childhood Special Education program. They are capping me off at 1-2 classes a semester, which I think is ridiculous. Also, I wish I had the option of a dual degree in Early Childhood and Childhood Special Education. Otherwise, I've had a great experience with my courses, professors and peers in my program.

Pros -It's much more affordable than larger institutions -The faculty are friendly and easy to get in touch with -The classes are manageable to do while you are working on your thesis Cons -There is no financial aid or work study at the graduate level, only loans

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is offering me the best education and strategies I need to become an efficient educator in NYS. I am honored to be among staff members that care and provide for each and everyone of their students.

Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program has tremendous rigor and practical career readiness and preparation. As for a graduate course they are not accommodating to full time working students. There is also class time limitations, such as mainly morning and early afternoon classes. This reduces the available classes for working grad students. The professors are truly knowledgeable in their content areas.
