Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2011

Pros are definitely the quality of education. The great support offered by the faculty. The cons are the cost of education and the lack of internship/job placement assistance.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Doctor of Physical Therapy program in LIU Brooklyn Campus is a great program for those who are highly devoted to the field. The faculty team in our program is extremely helpful and supportive. The curriculum is well constructed and wisely distributed throughout all three years.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that we pay a lot for graduate school, which is unfair considering that we are in a full time program and cannot work to pay off bills and loans. I feel that more financial aid and scholarships should be awarded to students. On the other hand, this school has excellent professors who provide support and expertise. The content is rigorous, but I feel confident that I will do well and pass the National Board Exams.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2015

The Master's Program at LIU Brooklyn Campus in Pharmacology Toxicology and Medicinal Chemistry is a highly competitive program that offers students great insight into pharmacology and how medicine interacts with the human body. The curriculum is very challenging and requires a very strong background in biochemistry and/or pharmacology. However, in today's world, we are surrounded by medicine and herbal remedies of which we try to make sense of. The master's program in pharm/tox delivers high quality education to its participants, offering both a solid background of introductory courses and a wide variety of elective classes that cater to the individual's special interests. The faculty is incredibly knowledgeable and very amenable to helping their students learn. I highly recommend this program to anyone wishing to pursue careers in pharmacology, toxicology, and professional degrees, especially medicine.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

The masters program is a very intimate/ small program. Students learn in a hands on experiences where professors are mentors and guide students towards specific area of interest.
3.88 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Attending graduate school is a considerable opportunity. Obviously not to be taken lightly to those that undergo the program. The pros of this particular program: small class size, support of faculty and knowledgable staff. Information is communicated more effectively in these types of settings. No institution is without their share of problems, however LIU- Brooklyn overcomes them with tact and agility.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Urban Studies department needs growth. Due to the lackluster efforts of the Director the program offers very little incentives and no research opportunities.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel so far that my expectations are being met. The level of work is intense and offers great learning.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014

The political science program is taught by some very well-qualified and knowledgable professors in the heart of Brooklyn, NY. There is no greater diversity than this school which is nationally recognized for its diverse environment. The program is comprehensive focusing on four core areas of study including political theory, international relations, comparative politics and American politics, however, it comes with a lot of heavy reading and writing, which should be expected at the graduate level. The evening program gives the student the flexibility of working full/part-time during the day. Lastly, you have the flexibility to either complete a thesis or take a comprehensive exam at the end of your studies. The few problems I have are the availability of classes -- core classes are not available every semester so it's purposefully spread out over a 2 year term, which is inconvenient for students who may have transferred into the program but still want to graduate on time. LIU is a private school so tuition is going to be on the high side. And although the professors are quality, this isn't your NYU or Columbia grade of study so the price is a little ambitious for degree/school quality. Otherwise, I'm overall satisfied with my decision to pursue my degree here.
