NYU provides an excellent community of knowledgeable professors, engaged students, and exciting field placement opportunities. It's proving to be an excellent choice in obtaining my MSW degree.

Steinhardt's M.A. in Art Education program offers immersive opportunities to learn the art of being a K-12 educator. Student teaching experiences ranging from public schools in dire need of creative outlets to the world's most selective private institutions paint a true picture of contrasts in education today, and will prepare you for any teaching environment you may encounter in the field. NYU is surrounded by a vibrant artistic community is nestled amongst museums and galleries that add to the enriching educational experience. The network and resources really follow through.

This clinically based program is taught by well qualified professors to classrooms brimming with a diversely populated group of students. Through internships, lectures, and required readings students gain knowledge not only on underlying theories, but also on how to actually perform in the field.

The only con I would say is the price. It's a bit expensive. The education is superb, all the faculty is really nice and accessible. The courses are also dynamic.

This program was definitely the program for me from the academics to the genuine community, and I am so happy to be building my network within it. It's the people in the department that make it what it is. It's also in a city that is unparallelled in regards to the access to the arts, which is essential to my development but educationally and career-wise. The thing that is the most difficult about the program is the limited financial aid available for living in one of the most expensive areas in the country. It takes a lot of trust to take on significant student loan debt, and despite the great personal value this experience has to me, my loans are comprised of objective numbers that can greatly impact my experience after graduation.

NYU's Global Affairs program has been challenging and rewarding. The expectations of the students are high and I wouldn't have it any other way. The academic, professional, and personal support provided is invaluable and adds to the greatness of the program as well as the school overall. The only true con is the cost of living but that's NYC in general and not necessarily a reflection of the school itself.

The Food Studies program is a relatively new and unique program at New York University. Because of this the department is constantly working out the kinks of the program changing things around, sometimes causing feeling of disorganization. At the same time, this newness has also allowed for flexibility and allows for each student to create a schedule that works for them personally. The program encourages students to work or find internships but does not provide students with help in building resumes, interviewing, and professors do not really seem open to provide recommendations. This creates a challenge. Class within the Food Studies department are excellent, although sometimes quite large. Overall Food Studies is new program in a cutting edge field. Overtime, as the field becomes more defined the program will become more organized and sustainable.
