Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2021

I greatly enjoy the rigor of the curriculum. The professors are very helpful and provide the necessary papers needed to start the research. As a first year PHD Student my days are often marked by intense studying, networking and discussions and work.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

NYU Tandon is a very promising and vibrant school Downtown Brooklyn. This campus is experiencing a new life from the merger with NYU. The investment in science, technology and engineering programs on this campus is very promising, and any student that goes here will see their diploma rise in value as the institution reaps the benefits from NYU's dedication to STEM. Furthermore, Tandon is NYU's cheapest school for tuition, and also has had the among the best ROIs for a degree in the country for a long time. I fully recommend NYU Tandon to anyone who is interested in Engineering and Science higher education.

Degree: Occupational Therapy Assistant
Graduation Year: 2018

NYU is a really great school with a lot of diverse students. The teachers are intelligent, experienced clinicians with vast research background who only want the best for their students. Although the education is great, NYU is very expensive and does not provide much financial aid for their graduate school students.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

NYU Silver School of Social Work Masters Program is an excellent social work program for anyone that wants to pursue a clinical social work career. The coursework is fairly rigorous, but professors are very accessible. NYU offers excellent instruction and excellent field placement opportunities for students.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2019

I am the second generation in my family to proudly attend NYU Steinhardt as a future teacher. I intend not only to address inclusivity of special education in my future classroom, I seek to improve my proficiency in culturally responsive teaching methodologies and use my experiences in Thailand to promote cultural diversity and awareness within education. NYU's duel certification coursework bridges research on cultural relevance with its successful implementation in classrooms. My professional development via courses such as Foundations of Curriculum for Diverse Learners, will play a critical role in my ability to navigate contemporary social and academic curriculum. This graduate degree allows me the opportunity to learn more about my own sociocultural biases while providing a framework that incorporates multiple paradigms. I specifically hope to focus on developing my masters research in culturally responsive behavioral systems and how they potentially link with cognitive dissonance. The supporting faculty for the program is equally as impressive and I love being at the epicenter of this diverse urban community.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

NYU Law offers a rigorous legal education with excellent clinical and extra-curricular opportunities in public interest. Faculty and staff care about students and are committed to helping students learn and succeed in their careers. Additionally, NYU's location is fantastic for professional opportunities, and the school attracts incredible guest speakers who work in, or are traveling through, the city.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

NYUs impact on my life thus far has been extraordinary: after several years out of school and unsure about what steps I might take next in my career, my masters degree at NYU helped me develop the mastery, confidence, and professional connections to apply for and receive a doctoral fellowship in my field. My classes were taught by established professors who took a genuine interest in my work and matched my own motivation with their support and encouragement. The rapport among my cohort at NYU is extraordinarily vibrant, amicable, and inspiring; it has taught me, among other things, the value of an active and constructive intellectual community in strengthening ones progress and motivation.
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

New York University - Stern Business School was an incredible experience which provided me with the well-rounded business education I was looking for. You will be challenged by your talented peers and professors in a collegial environment that stresses team work and group work. I found the quality of the lectures to be overall excellent and the course load manageable. If there was one negative, it would be that the career services tend to be focused more towards the full-time MBA students. As a part-time Langone student, you have less access to on-campus recruiting and other career opportunities.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2018

A degree from New York University in Museum Studies is a major stepping stone towards a successful career in any of the varying fields within museums. Located in the heart of Manhattan, NYU offers numerous opportunities to its students, with learned and experienced faculty, and countless local museums with which to make connections.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU is a great university, but they offer poor financial aid for graduate students. I graduated with a MS in Mathematics from them in 2015, but went back to obtain a PhD in Mechanical Engineering (dynamical systems/control theory specialty). I'm considering switching to another school, however, due to the lack of financial support.
