Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
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.

While many of the professors are helpful and try to provide useful opportunities for students, overall the programs is not worth the ridiculous price.
2.4 out of 5.0
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.

The Manhattan Campus was very convenient for me because I work in the city and didn't have to travel far for evening classes.
2.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I liked my professors but I do not like the school as a whole. The psych office told me that the information you see on your student log in page is often wrong and I was missing credits I did not know about. It is very disorganized and took me forever to get a straight answer about graduation.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

It's an amazing campus and a good place to study. Also staying off campus isn't too bad and is close to public commute

Graduation Year: 2006

This is a smaller but more expensive college. I found classes to be small, and several job fairs were hosted upon graduation. I did find the evening classes convenient for working professionals, but the expenses were high .
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors at Long Island University-Brooklyn Campus are very passionate of their subject area, which makes class (and learning) more engaging and enjoyable. They are also attentive to their students. They make every effort to connect with students outside the classroom, opening the doors for further learning and honing skills needed for their students' future careers.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

My university is a school that focuses on the pharmacy and nursing schools more than any other program on campus. The liberal arts are not a priority whatsoever. Barely any money for grants or scholarships for undergraduate or graduate study of psychology. The PhD psychology program would get all the psychology funds and the rest would trickle down. The psychology program at LIU feels like an advanced bachelor degree. Very general and has no focus, it's essentially a stepping stone if you can't get into another graduate or doctoral program that helps further your career. I did have a good experience with a couple of my professors, which are the ones I took most classes with. Generally speaking, the administration needs a major overhaul in this institution.
