Student & Graduate Reviews

4.08 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The music business management program is an excellent program with a particularly dedicated faculty. Unfortunately, my biggest concern is the extremely large amount of debt that each student is left with upon graduation. Indeed a great program should be expected to cost a lot and New York City is the most expensive city in the world, but New York University is still one of, if not the most expensive schools in this country. I am a student, but I do not believe education should cost this much for any reason whatsoever.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

NYU offer's the first and arguably to most developed graduate program in food studies. Being in NYC also has the unique advantage of being a food culture epicenter, on the forefront of all sorts of trends, while also having several rich and developed communities. An urban environment is only one side however, and NYU struggles with more of the agricultural side of the food communities that other food systems programs can explore more in depth.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2019

The M.S. in Translation program is a rigorous program that expects a lot from its students while giving an excellent quality education. The professors that I have had have been kind and knowledgeable, with one being in the forefront of the career field nationwide. I feel confident that I am getting the best education in the subject matter from NYU. The courses are quite costly and the financial aid does not lessen the burden of the costs in any meaningful way. While I would highly recommend the program, I do think the price excludes individuals who either cannot or do not want to take out student loans.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2018

The DDS program at NYUCD is a rewarding yet extremely intense experience. Fitting in the knowledge and expertise that is required to be a health care professional into 4 short years can be stressful on both the students as well as the faculty. I have completed my first year thus far, and have found that the didactic course load In the first year was tolerable. There were many courses that I felt were unnecessary to our education however, overall the experience was pleasurable. The faculty were always available to meet with students and aid them in understanding the difficult course work. I have just recently begun my second year and feel that the course work has definitely multiplied. Labs are emphasized way more to give students an opportunity to learn the hand skills needed before diving into the clinic during the 3rd and 4th year. I feel that one of the cons of the program would be that they have cut the lab hours short. Unfortunately this shortage of time leaves the students with an increased amount of work that must be completed during their spare time (which is difficult to find, because of the studying required for other courses). I also feel that students are forced to learn most of the skills required for their course work through videos which can be tough and leave you with a sense of uncertainty of whether you have really understood what needs to be done. However, the plus side is the immense amount of faculty present in the school to assist you when you feel the sense of unsureness. All in all, I feel that this graduate program will definitely be beneficial to me because of the population of patients. As a 3rd and 4th year student, I will be able to practice and treat a vast array of patients and potentially be exposed to all kinds of dental scenarios that will help me become a more competent health care practitioner.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I love NYU because of the administrators and professors. They work extremely hard to share their expertise with us and instill in their students a passion for education and to create a change in the current broken system. NYU truly helps their students with ample amount of resources in order to pass any exam and goes far beyond a typical teacher preparation program.
