Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Public Relations)
Graduation Year: 2017

I decided to study abroad this past summer in NYU Steinharts Intercultural Perspectives on Teaching and Learning program at NYU Shanghai and the University of Hong Kong to gain first hand teaching experience and earn six graduate credits in education. The course work offered an understanding of learning strategies, cultural perspectives, communication channels, and multicultural social interactions within Chinas dynamic atmosphere. Further, the curriculum required two critical components, including: an independent research study, which I conducted on the effectiveness of digital learning tools in teaching English, and experience teaching middle school students English at St. Mary's Primary School in Hong Kong. This opportunity ultimately reiterated my love for teaching and solidified my goal to become an educator.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: You can work full-time. The MPH is possible to complete while working full-time, although your work schedule may need to be somewhat flexible for one to two days a week, depending. Some courses are offered before 5pm, and some core courses are offered online. This can help with fitting a normal workday into your schedule. However, keep in mind that you will be doing an internship, which will definitely require flexibility from your employer, at least in the second year of the program. Faculty are helpful and knowledgeable. Everyone works in the field and has amazing real-world experience. The college itself is new, though the degree is not, so they are more likely to listen to students at this point in time. Cons: As I said above, not every class is offered after 5pm (though they will try to tell you this when you're admitted). There are a lot of core courses--some are rigorous, others are not.

I really enjoyed it. It has a great location and a very diverse curriculum and student community.
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

NYU's network is very strong, particularly if you're looking to stay in NYC. I'm very glad I did the part-time program and took advantage of my employer's tuition reimbursement policy. Business school would have been prohibitively expensive otherwise.
2.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

It was okay but it was difficult to find research groups to join. The Master's faculty are separate from the Doctoral faculty so you don't get to take the same classes as the Ph.D. candidates.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I love NYU. I mean it can be tough living in the city in the beginning but overall I had a great experience.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2010

NYU filmmaking program is a very intense film program with basically one film to make each term. It definitely helps one to become a real filmmaker. We've had cinematography, editing, writing and directing classes. Usually there will be 10-15 people for each class. The first semester we learnt and shot on super 16mm film camera, it was very rare for film school to make students do that anymore. It is a fun school with lots of talents people.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

NYU is a wonderful school for self-motivated students. It's an incredible opportunity to be in the city; you have access to so many internship and other work opportunities. It is a very large school, so you should be prepared to feel like you're one in a very large crowd.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Best s school I could have gotten into best teachers friendly but competitive. Made me want to be a better student and person from what they taught me.
