Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2019

Great faculty and environment that is tailored to a successful learning system.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The MS in Global Affairs is a good program although it just have less than 3 years of created, I think the courses are really interesting and the professors are really good too. However, it is expensive and it did not have many options of financial aids.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2017

Graduate school is not supposed to be easy. At NYU I feel challenged by the workload and the material. While at times that can be stressful, I would much rather be prepared for my chosen career in forensics than have an easy go of it and not know what I am doing in the future. The con of NYU is most definitely the price tag. It is not cheap, and while there is some funding for masters students, it is still very difficult to attend the programs while not drowning under student debt. I have a part time job through the university which helps defray some of the costs but I am still up against the wall when it comes to covering my cost of living and coming to school in the city. Be aware that it is not an easy situation to live and study in New York City AND at the same time pay tuition bills. Overall though, NYU is worth the stress and money because it is the best environment to live and work in.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Hybrid learning environment enables classroom interaction as well as time to complete assignments at my own pace within the semester. Faculty available very quickly. Comprehensive review of business analytics using multiple technologies. Application ready. Cons: A lot to learn very quickly. Learning to program in multiple languages at the same time is not easy and this makes the program very challenging.

It is a wonderful graduate program, worth every dime. Though I believe more financial aid should be available.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

NYU is an amazing school that comes with incredible faculty, interesting coursework, a myriad of research opportunities, and a one of a kind setting of the best city in the world. NYU is very expensive and does not offer very much financial aid, but the education and experience I am receiving by being a student here is irreplaceable.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

This program has a relatively high workload, however people are encouraged, provided the materials they need, and the overall environment is healthy. NY is a city, so that figures into safety issues, but as far as the school goes, cooperation and not cut throat self mindedness is cultivated. Great place to network.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty is wonderful and I'm learning so much from the program. However, the program is extremely expensive.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm pursuing a Master's Degree in Social Work from NYU. The faculty are knowledgeable and we have great connections to social service agencies all throughout the city. The downside of my particular program, which is part time, is the limited ability to participate in all the school has to offer given that I also work full time.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

There's nothing more substantial of an educational journey than acquiring a graduate's degree. The lessons and professors who precede that event solidify one's road to becoming an adult. New York University encapsulates that regime for aspiring minds who seek higher grounds. My experience at the university proved how beneficial master's degrees are in a professional world. My course instructors, who are equipped with invaluable experience in their fields, instill a sense of professionalism that's unprecedented in the modern world. Every lecture unveils a new meaning to workforce that have once been unseen by others. Although, that sense of privilege is rarely without cost. The course, while highly influential and vital, burdens students with a price tag.
