Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2010

I enjoyed the small classes instead of all huge lecture classes. There was always events on campus such as movie nights and concerts to go to. The campus itself is also beautiful and it is fun to explore around the mansion with the labyrinth and rose garden. You can choose which dorm to live in and they offered a quiet dorm as well as what is known as the party dorm.

My college education prepared me for a career in education. The graduate program was very hands on and allowed me to work face to face with students.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2011

The LIU Graduate School of Education was a great experience. I had excellent professors and adjunct lecturers. They had high expectations of me and were extremely personable. Most classes were engaging and assignments were meaningful. Even though it has been over 6 years since I graduated, I feel like they still know me....the licensing officer responds to licensing and certification questions very quickly. They respect your time. The reality of any program is you will get what you give. I gave a lot and I received that energy back!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Long Island University -Brooklyn is a beautiful campus with a tiny bookstore, a few cafes and an education building that is being remodeled. It is in the heart of downtown Brooklyn. The main campus is right across the street from Junior's Cheesecake restaurant. It's near many train stations and also very close to the Manhattan Bridge on Flatbush extension. Parking is a nightmare if you're considering driving your best bet is to park in the hospital parking lot behind the campus adjacent to the gym . Most of my classes were taken in the 4 story education building on Hanover place which is a block-and-a-half away from the main campus. For the most part my professors were average but I had two exceptional professors who went above and beyond for the students registered in our program. These professors were so knowledgeable. They truly mastered their craft. Their lessons were life-changing. I was a member of the teaching fellows program so my experience is different from a traditional graduate student. The Registration Department of the education program is very responsive to emails. They get right back to you. They are very helpful and remind you when you need to register for classes. I would recommend Long Island University to other teaching fellows looking for a program that is close to home and that will prepare them to be successful, engaging, motivational educators.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019

So far I have been pleased with LIU's PA program. The faculty is warm and welcoming. One caveat I have experienced is poor communication within some of the departments. They have all been slow to respond to emails and phone calls, which is frustrating for any student trying to get in contact about important information concerning their education.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

LIU Brooklyn is an amazing school despite its cost of attendance. That being said the instruction I have received is unparalleled. Individual attention, focus on success from individuals in the field. I have learned so much in such a safe and nurturing environment. I truly and whole heartedly recommend LIU Brooklyn to any college student.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Long Island University Brooklyn's MS Early Childhood Education program was one that was fulfilling, knowledgeable and supportive. All of the professors are highly experienced with great insight about urban schools and how to succeed within them. I was able to access all of my professors and my adviser at any time through email, as well as during their long office hours. The only downside is the price and dealing with the financial aid office, but the education program itself is excellent.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Long Island University (Brooklyn campus) is a college where all students are encouraged to work hard to achieve results. It has a high academic level and no one receives a degree without first obtaining a wealth of knowledge both in the area of their field of work and in other areas. The campus is populated with a diversity of students all from different cultures and ethnic groups but the atmosphere is warm and every student feels part of the LIU family.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

While many of the professors are helpful and try to provide useful opportunities for students, overall the programs is not worth the ridiculous price.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2012

Long Island University is extremely expensive. I wish that one of the state schools on Long Island had the school counseling major so that I wouldn't be $40,000 in debt. They did not reveal just how competitive the field is. They did not mention that almost 1,000 people apply for a leave replacement position. On a more positive note, the professors were great and I did get to go to Africa for two weeks.
