Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The only con would be the cost of the program; however, the school is well known and the quality of the program is worth the price. The program provides a warm and inviting environment for students. The professors are accessible outside of class and eager to help.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently working and taking graduation classes at night. Fordham's times of classes are perfect for part- time. The facility staff is unbelievable and always willing to help.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros are that there are a few different campuses to choose from so you can attend classes in different areas. The Professors are very accessible and willing to help students with their success. Classes are small and only offered on a specific day which leaves the rest of the week open for everything else. Cons are Fordham is an expensive school and my campus charges for parking when you only attend one day.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Overall I had a good experience at Fordham. However, the guidance I received for my chosen career path was lacking. Some of the professors are standoffish and unwilling to help. Others are willing to go above and beyond for their students. The surrounding area (the Bronx) makes is necessary for you to be aware of your surroundings and alert at all times. The campus itself is safe, but I received multiple security warnings from the surrounding area daily.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Fordham is one of the best places for Latin American and Latino Studies. The LALSI department offers excellent opportunities and support, as well as a diverse and challenging academic experience. The Early Admissions option for Fordham undergraduates makes graduate study a much more affordable and feasible option because it allows you to get your masters in only one additional year. The location in the Bronx, with easy accessibility to other boroughs via inter-campus transportation to the Lincoln Center campus or the subway or MetroNorth trains, is another great perk.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2015

The only cons of the program is that it is expensive to live in New York City, and the diversity of Fordham could be better. However, living in New York is worth the extra money by far. The program has great professors and the students are really sharp. Great place to do graduate work. The stipend and other sources for money are great.
