Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

While it's a new program that just launched, the one-year, full-time Public Media program at Fordham University is very beneficial to my educational goals and needs. We have learned various aspects of the media, including theory and hands-on approaches, which are marketable to any Communications field. I'm really glad I enrolled in this program at Fordham University, a Jesuit institution in New York.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

My law school was very much like a high school in terms of social relations amongst the students. The alumni network, however, is very strong and made the experience worth it.

Degree: Communications (Public Relations)
Graduation Year: 1996

Fordham University has a great graduate-level master's program. I graduated from the Public Communications program. The rigor and preparation that I received served me well in my career. I graduated in 1996, at the time I felt the information and curriculum was cutting-edge. With all of the changes in technology, social and the cultural drivers of the current news cycle, I can only imagine how exiting the program is today. Thank you Fordham!

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Fordham University's doctoral program in Education Leadership and Policy has provided students with the opportunity for students to discuss critical issues in urban education. The doctoral program gives students the ability to focus on theory and practice while maintaining high standards of learning. My decision to attend Fordham was one of the best decisions of my life.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The degree program did not satisfy my educational needs. A lot of professors were excellent, I think the issue was the curriculum. There were not enough elective classes so I wasn't able to study the areas I was interested in. Quite a few of the required classes felt either unnecessary or as if they could have been taught in a shorter length of time than a complete semester. Upon graduating I immediately entered a certificate program which offered the skills I felt I was missing to be a competent counselor . The program also did not provide efficient support for career seeking. It could be due to issues with the MHC degree itself, regardless finding an internship and job was an extremely difficult process.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The Fordham Master's in Social Work program is great! It is ranked #11 in the country. And I can see why. The faculty members are knowledgeable and accessible. Classes are interesting and engaging. My favorite class so far has been Social Policy where we discuss different policies that have been enacted around mental health, children and families, and civil rights. However, Fordham's program is a bit expensive. So I'd encourage anyone applying to seek out as many scholarships and grants as possible to decrease the amount of loans you'll need. Overall, I'm really pleased with my decision to enroll at Fordham. I know I'll be well prepared to become a social worker once I graduate.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The cons are that the internship track is only offered if you attend the program on campus but not online. The quality of faculty and lectures I love. As well as classes. I wish certain classes were held online each semester.
