Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2020

Fordham University is a great institution for students of all ethic backgrounds and beliefs. The Graduate School of Social Services Program has given me a new outlook on the aspects of Social Work. The education the professors provide and learning experiences I have encountered have encouraged me to continue on in my field of study so I can make a difference in todays communities, as well as in our country. I am proud and honored to be able to attend such an elite University.

Fordham University is a great Institution and I recommend going if you are looking for a friendly and more intimate environment. You are not left behind and the professors are great. I can not thank my professors enough for being patient and reachable when ever you need them.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is centered on a human rights approach. The classes allow you to be able to freely express your opinions without being harshly criticized by the professor and encouraged open communication between classmates. The professors encourage communication with any problems, questions, and comments, with a quick reply. While the materials for the classroom is online (for online students), you still need to buy textbooks in addition to the material.

Degree: Social Work

Fordham University provides learning opportunities across degree programs in a variety of formats that are designed to meet the needs of students and the technology based society. Their Social Work program is student oriented and thoughtful. It is evident that the faculty is focused on student successes and invested in getting to know students well through their learning.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2009

Fordham University has a dance program that is unmatched by no other in the NYC area. Being connected to The Ailey School, you get a diverse curriculum of all the traditional modern techniques, ballet, nutrition and somatic courses as well as access to well known choreographers. Fordham academics prove to me a challenging way to stimulate artists for the better. Not only do you get courses in Philosophy or Ethics and Reasoning but you also get Music for Dancers, Anatomy/Kinesiology, and Faith, Justice and Art. Being located in New York gives students to explore the city, see as much dance as possible and get onto the scene from open class, to volunteering with dance companies. Ailey Fordham provides dance photos, cover letters, reels, and potential job opportunities like the one I did getting into Ailey II. The jr. company to the world renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Fordham has also been an experience that was often fun and exciting from the Presidents Ball, to the basketball games at the Rose Hill campus, and getting involved of the many clubs and activities. I would definitely recommend Fordham University especially to dancers because the school gives you the ability to think outside the box.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2017

I got a great deal out of the curriculum for the Master's Degree in Public Media at Fordham University. It's an inaugural program that started last year, but I believe the courses on offer are structured well and the professor's are top notch. Not only have they taught for quite some time, but they've all worked in the field in different capacities. It's a one-year, full-time program so it's possible to have your Master's in one year, which I believe appeals to many students.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

So far Fordham Westchester has been a positive experience. I find the curriculum thought provoking and the professors helpful, encouraging and approachable. It is pricey though and for a degree in social work you would wish they would price according to earning potential. Overall I am grateful I made the decision to go back to school and that I chose Fordham.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

For years I have wanted to go back to school for my masters in social work but financial fear kept me from taking the leap. Since enrolling in Fordham GSS Westchester Campus I now feel I am self actualizing and moving in a direction towards my full potential, and it's a wonderful feeling. I have found the curriculum stimulating and thought provoking and through this increase in knowledge and self awareness I find my authentic voice is emerging. My professors have been extremely supportive, approachable and encouraging. Many of the students are serious about learning, focused, and collaborative, however, some students talk and text during class and do not appear as focused on their education. I have chosen to gravitate to the more focused, serious students and find team work encouraged here at Fordham. Unfortunately Fordham is pricey and offers only small scholarships to counterbalance the high tuition rate, which is daunting for one who has chosen a career in social work. With all the being said I know I made the right decision by taking the risk to go back to school and I know I made the right choice with Fordham.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

The Public Media program at Fordham University is a one-year, full-time Master's Degree program. There are several cross-platform journalism, theory, and strategic communication courses on offer. The top-notch professors always make themselves available to students. I'm glad I chose this program, which is in its inaugural year.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2012

Fordham's MSW social work program is excellent. I feel it combines clinical social work with a perspective of social justice. It's the right mix of macro/community-based social work and micro/psychotherapy-based social work. The professors are excellent, the classes are small, and the school is located in its modern Lincoln Center campus. It's easily accessible via many subways, and right be beautiful Central Park.
