Student & Graduate Reviews

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.

Degree: Law

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.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2018

NYU is an institution of the highest order, and it's reputation is strong. The academics are challenging and the offerings are unique. I believe you can learn at NYU what you cannot learn anywhere else. In the heart of the greatest city of the world, you will be stretched both personally and professionally. I believe that you get what you pay for, and being an NYU grad has huge benefits in the professional world.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

New York University is an amazing place to be for a graduate student. To be able to study public health in this prime location and to be amongst a diverse and educated staff and faculty is a privilege. I wasn't sure about my decision to attend NYU's College of Global Public Health at first but I am thankful that I did. Do your homework on every graduate program you're interested in, but make sure your decision also heavily considers community engagement and faculty diversity -- they make or break your experience.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2018

The Nutrition and Food Studies department at New York University is excellent. As a current Food Studies graduate student I have found the curriculum and department opportunities to be engaging and thought provoking. There is a strong sense of community throughout the department and I have found that my professors are accessible and willing to help. The most rewarding part of the program thus far has been the countless resources that NYU offers. Some of my favorite resources have been the graduate study lounges in the library, resume review at Wasserman (the career center), the free language courses, and discounted tickets at events in the city.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

New York University has an amazing teaching style of discussion -based classes even for your program's required classes. New York City becomes your campus, and with that comes amazing opportunities. I am so happy with my decision to attend this University, and although it is pricey, I know the degree will pay for itself.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

A rigorous program that offers an in-depth and broad foundation in Computer Science. One must have programming experience to succeed in the foundational classes. C++ is a necessity. The teachers mostly offer help as needed. The coursework is challenging.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Not only does New York University have one of the best social work programs incorporated with one of the best clinical training, but it is a beautiful campus as well. The atmosphere, the restaurants, the professors and the students make the experience one of the best.

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.
