Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

New York University has been helpful in my pursuit to obtaining my Master's degree in mental health counseling. The professors are highly trained professionals in the field providing valuable information and advice to everyone about what skills, beliefs, etc they need to become a successful counselor. With small class sizes, I have a more personal one on one relationship with my professors in which they know everyone's names and take the time to get to know their students. Most importantly, the internship requirement in the program exposes me to the mental health counseling field before I graduate and meet other fellow peers in the field.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2018

I had expectations that were not be met, particularly from program support, finding other people who look like you, and exploring opportunities related to your interests. However, use the program to network, have a prepared elevator pitch on your program and goals. You have to create your own opportunities! Just persist and your hard work will all be worth it.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2019

I'm in a Master of Fine Arts program that takes place in Paris, France. I work with some of the most distinguished writers and professors in my field in the world's epicenter of art and culture, Paris. I see potential in my career and academic pursuit of a Ph.D due to this program and feel NYU continues to be a top institution for the field of Creative Writing. My school also offers support and mentors for graduate students, which I find as a plus. I work with writers of all ages and some who are already teaching professors who live in other countries. Financial Aid is tricky as an international student and any scholarship helps, but this experience has been so much of what I have desired for my graduate education.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

NYU is a great school with a wide range of programs and a bunch of on campus activities and events. For your first year it may be a bit over whelming as a lot is going around you at campus and then the NYC life outside of campus but you'll get the hang of it.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I have had a wonderful experience in my time at New York University. I attended the online program. It was a lot of work, but you get more out of it than in a traditional online class or in a classroom setting. You attend a live feed in an online class room once a week, readings, and online material also. While it is a lot of work, it challenges you to think harder. The professors are really there to help you and guide you. They answer emails quickly. They will meet with you on the phone or in a virtual classroom. Their education shows in what they are teaching and they want you to succeed. The support in the school is more than expected too. My advisor reaches out to me to check in on how I am doing and if he can help. I have a placement specialist who reaches out to local area schools to help place me for my practicum and interview, which is a great relief having a professional do the legwork. I also have a mentor who is an established member of NYU. We are given a list of current professors who are mentors to graduate students. We pick our top three choices and submit them. Then our mentor contacts us and asks what we need from them to help pursue our dreams. I am very fortunate to be attending such a great school with a great program and staff.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I am beginning my graduate degree in School Counseling at New York University in January of 2017. I am extremely excited to start this program. NYU has maintained an amazing reputation and I cannot wait to take part in it. I'm sure it will be rigorous and in preparation to start the program, everyone at NYU has been extremely helpful along the way.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

The School Counseling program under the Applied Psychology department of Steinhardt has been an amazing experience so far. The professors are attentive, well-prepared and very well versed in their field. They come to class with a lot of field experience which allows the dense coursework to become more practical and tangible. There's a lot of discussion among classmates and professors which allows us to feel safe to voice ourselves. The program is small, about 20-25 students so we have a great community and comradely. Every class is distinct in the topic at hand and we are prepared well through a year long internship program during our second year. I love this program and I'm so happy to have moved from CA to attend NYU.

Degree: Communications (Public Relations)
Graduation Year: 2018

NYU's exceptional learning environment offers unique career enhancing benefits and a competitive edge in the global workforce. The Master of Science in Public Relations and Corporate Communication at New York University's School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS) provides students with the finest education in each area encompassing communications and public relations. It ultimately harvests the growth learners need to achieve goals in both their professional and personal lives.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2008

I really enjoyed my time at NYU. It has a non-traditional campus feel, which worked well for me as a graduate student. At the time, there were some things lacking with the program in terms of the availability of courses and connections with relevant research/internship opportunities within the program. The program has since grown and developed though. I almost wish I had attended a few years later. Overall, the MPH program got me where I needed to be in order to begin my career.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

A great investment, however, you have to already have a game plan for yourself as the institution is not the best in counseling students. In the Masters program, you get excellent exposure and internship. The students are the cream of the crop and it was amazing having such educated and well rounded colleagues.
