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.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

As a student of NYU Silver School of Social Work, I have learned to be an advocate for not only those who are in need of Social Services by a Social Worker but for myself as well. They have prepared me with all the right tools to successfully begin my journey advocating for my clients. Through this program I was able to network with my professors and classmates during mixers and conferences. I would not change my experience to go anywhere else.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019

As someone with no background in Computer Science, NYU is getting me caught up and moving forward! I majored in Accounting for my Bachelors so to say I have zero coding experience is right on. NYU offers students like me an accelerated program called PAC, which gets me the introduction I need to excel in their Master in CS program. Not a lot of universities accepts students without CS background into their graduate programs so this chance is that much more rare and awesome!

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The classes are well organized and the diversity of students expand the perspectives for each topic taught. Extracurricular events are very engaging and impacts the learning experience outside of the classroom. Professors both practitioners and academics give a well rounded mix of knowledge.

Degree: Hospitality Management
Graduation Year: 2019

As someone who was born and raised in New York City, New York University's "notoriety" was well known. I use the word notoriety because it was so expensive that it intimidated most of us. Yeah, you'd have a degree from one of the most famous Universities in the world, but you'd be in debt forever... So why did I decide to apply and attend this school? I was 24 years old with a Bachelors degree from CUNY and a Certificate from The New School. I finally had a full time job, and I was ready for Grad School, but I was also tired of playing it safe. I applied to many schools and threw NYU in the list for giggles. Secretly I hoped I'd get accepted, and you wouldn't believe my surprise when I actually got accepted; and let me tell you, YES!, NYU is very expensive, but it is worth it. You will only know how and why once you're in these classrooms. NYU is one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I'd highly recommend it for you too.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

New York University is an experience like no other. Aside from being in the midst of NYC's hustle and bustle, you will also be immersed in one of those most diverse environments in the world. Waking up to a view of the most iconic skyline along with endless options to grub, I can guarantee that going to NYU is a choice you will never regret!
