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.

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.

Teachers of Mathematics 7-12 is the Professional Certification and Fast Track. Students in this program are all certified teachers. Thus, this program do not require for the student teaching experience in the classroom. However, one of our math education professor still bring us out to the field and get into the real classrooms in NYU's partnership schools to observe the teacher and students' interaction and class activities. For students in either initial certification or .professional certification track, NYU has a large amount partnership schools over NYC. Students will pair up with a school for the classroom observation and also student teaching. That make our life easier to find a school. Some math education professors really taught us a lot of and gave us a lot of free resources that are very useful. And those class project I did are also can be used in my real classroom teaching now. Thus, I did not waste my time of doing those projects.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

I am a student at one of the only fully individualized graduate programs in the country. This allows me to tailor my degree program to my unique interests and needs, which is extremely valuable and enjoyable. At the same time, it poses some challenges in that I do not have any sequence to follow, I have to be very independent in my program, and there isn't a ton of assistance from the university. I would suggest this program for people who are eager and willing to be very independent in their studies! Overall, it's NYU. The location, network, and academic quality are all incredible. The cost is high, but the perceive value of this education is much higher!

Degree: Social Work

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The Silver School of Social Work is not only an academic program of the highest quality, but it is also a community, which I didn't expect upon entering the school. Course material challenges cultural, racial, ability-based assumptions and strives to create social workers who see both their own prejudices and the way to move through those into a posture of listening, learning, and openness. Professors are deeply caring about the wellbeing of their students, and self-care is promoted as an important long-term skill for students and social workers. New York City is an incomparable backdrop for student life, cultural curiosity, and the hard, honest truth of social injustice, racism, oppression, and the need for this profession of social work.

Degree: Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is extensive and covers a large base of knowledge. The faculty are incredible and the workload is what it should be at an institution like NYU. It's strenuous and challenging, yet interesting and engaging.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my program are that it is truly a professional degree program in that it prepares you for a career in the field of public service of your choosing. Another pro is the faculty and staff who are all dedicated to public service and the fact that the program is based in New York City gives student a lot of access to great career opportunities. Being located in New York City can also be a con for the program because of how expensive the cost of living is. Also there doesn't seem to be much financial assistance provided to international students.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I believe the the greatest benefits from attending NYU stem from its amazing location, and the access students have to incredible faculty and on-campus recruiting. The downside to attending NYU is the extremely expensive tuition and the very high cost of living in New York City.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The Higher Education and Student Affairs Program is of high caliber, the faculty is invested in the students' learning. The material is current and practical. The HESA Program provides with opportunities to acquire skills and to grow as an individual and a professional. I am very happy with my education at NYU's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development.
