Student & Graduate Reviews

4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I feel that one of the pros of my program is its flexibility and convenience for a working psychologist. I also love the diversity and supportive nature of the other graduate students. There is a great sense of comradery. The faculty are also very supportive and accessible. They program has made very good use of technology in providing information and streamlining everything a student may need access too. The area is easily accessible by train (one block away) and is very near to Central Park (program is located at the Lincoln Campus) which makes for a great environment. One of the cons of my program may be the availability of scholarship aids and funding for students who are not full time.

Very expensive due to location in NYC, but a great program. Professors are knowledgeable and approachable.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros and cons of attending the Graduate School of Social Services at Fordham University are quality higher education, friendly staff and beautiful and safe campus. However, extremely expensive such as tuition, books, public transportation. I absolutely love Fordham University and dedicated to achieving my educational goals.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I transferred to Fordham from Emory Law School after my first year. I have found Fordham to be more competitive than Emory, and unlike Emory, Fordham has a mandatory curve for small classes. On the other hand, I find the classes at Fordham to be more challenging, and the teachers to be more approachable.

3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Very knowledgable and efficient faculties. But need to improve research facilities.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros are that you get a respected degree in education that is known around New York City DOE schools. The con is that some of the professors grading and teaching styles can be unpredictable throughout the semester, which is not very helpful for developing teachers.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work

This is my first semester as a GSW student. So far I am happy with the program.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

Amazing professors. ZERO opportunity for scholarships.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are the very important and informative education that is provided to the students of the MSW program. I have learned so much since I started at Fordham University and have made new friends who we assist each other when necessary for our assignments. The professors are helpful and are very understanding, at least to my own experience. There are not any cons that I could think of at the moment.
