Degree: Real Estate
Graduation Year: 2019

New York University has been a game changer in my pursuit to become a successful Real Estate Developer. Coming from an undergraduate and professional background in Civil Engineering, NYU has made the career switch into real estate effortless. A lot of that ease has to do with the professors, smaller class sizes, and strong culture for success that the classrooms at NYU emmit. From the graduate college experience to the new exciting professional relationships that I am building, NYU has definitely been the best academic decision I have made thus far. So if you are thinking about applying, just do it. I promise you wont regret it.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2019

I just began my MA in school counseling online. The faculty, financial aide staff and the school advisor all has been of great help. They answer my questions and if they weren't sure of the answer, they would find out and get back with me. The school advisor made sure that I felt comfortable and made sure my online experience went as smooth as possible. They even found me a school in my area to complete my practicum. I enjoy the synchronized classes. New York University ranked one of the best schools in the country.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2019

I am currently in the Global Journalism program at NYU. I love the program. So far it has given me on the ground experience with reporting, which I have never had before. I have been exposed to various kinds of journalism and encouraged to explore them. I have been able to pursue stories that interest me, while being pushed outside of my comfort zone. I've been inspired by my peers. We often are able to take classes with other journalism students who may specialize in another sector (say business journalism, as opposed to health, or international relations). This makes combined classes rich with various kinds of specialized knowledge that students share. I have been able to make the most of the vast resources, both textual and personal, that NYU has to offer. There are great opportunities for networking, for internships, and for exploring the newest and most relevant of journalistic skills. To anyone who is seeking to attend a university for journalism and struggling to choose which to apply to, or which to attend once accepted, I would have to suggest that NYU has the most diverse, comprehensive, and flexible program. You can make your degree work for you, personalize it to your interests, and get real applicable experience through classes and connections.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

New York University school of social work is a unique experience because faculty come and teach as professors from diverse social services agencies in New York City. So you get a chance to receive some insight into the working professional field of social worker. The program also focuses in depth on critical thinking and review of policy and clinical practice, its a especially great program if you want to focus on the clinical side of social work and become a better clinical writer for programs that require medical billing or research studies .

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

Fresh off the plane from Accra, Ghana, I find myself home recovering from what has been a rushed yet rewarding semester. For the past six months, I have been enrolled in NYUs Cross-Continental MPH program, an accelerated MPH program that takes place on three continents. The first semester was in Washington, D.C., where I spent the summer learning foundational subjects like Epidemiology, the Biology of Public Health, and Biostatistics while attending public health conferences in the nations capital. After that, we were whisked off to Ghana, where I was forced to swiftly and comprehensively adjust to life in another part of the world. As a student in the Global Health concentration, this is exactly the type of experience I was looking for when I began my applications last year. A fully immersive, hands-on public health experience that prepares me for a job in my chosen field. While in Ghana, with the help of NYU, I interned at Marie Stopes International, an NGO that provides sexual and reproductive health services to women and girls all over the globe. I spent my work days learning about, and contributing to, active public health education and marketing campaigns, incorporating data analysis strategies that I learned at a weekly software training program at the University of Ghana. The skills I gained there are highly applicable to the real world and have instantly made me a marketable candidate for coveted jobs in the nonprofit and private sectors. And possibly more valuable, I feel, was experiencing West Africa as a resident and a health worker; something that I believe has made me a more open-minded and compassionate human being. I will spend the rest of my winter break recovering from jet lag and seeing friends and family, before I again leave the country to attend my third and final semester. In Florence, Italy, I will attempt to learn another language while attending courses like Human Rights and Migration Health in the Mediterranean and finishing my thesis in gender policy. Braced for a challenge and ready to adjust to life in yet another country, I am honestly honored and thrilled for these opportunities that I would otherwise have not been given. For someone who has a burgeoning interest in the health sciences or the sociology of medicine, or even for someone who is merely interested in living abroad, I would highly recommend this program. To those considering it, I would say that you will find yourself armed with essential skills in public health and a newfound altruistic appreciation for humanity as a whole.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

I am part of the 16 month accelerated program, which can offer students like me a faster route to starting their second career. New York University has allowed me to achieve more in academia and in my personal life, through developing greater awareness to concepts of oppression, human rights, and a sense of responsibility to dismantle systems of oppression. I am constantly inspired by other students and professors in the school of social work that are motivated to help promote social justice.

Degree: Communications (Public Relations)
Graduation Year: 2018

NYU's Public Relations and Corporate Communications program is a great choice for those looking to expand upon their knowledge of the communications field. The most beneficial aspects of the program are absolutely the relationships you make with classmates and instructors, who have lead me to career opportunities while I was still working towards the degree. Solid program, with room for improvement (which is happening; the program improves each semester).

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

The online masters program for communication sciences and disorders has been tailored to meet the needs full-time students and, also those who do not have the privlage of moving out of state and being a full-time student. Truthfully, I am genuinely impressed on how NYU created the online platform of learning. As an online student, I often get asked if I feel alone in the process. The answer is, no. Students can connect with classmates across the country and with their professors on a weekly basis. Class sizes are small and, although there is a higher standard at which all graduate students are held to, professors want you to pass your classes and will provide you with the information you will need to be successful in the field.

Degree: Social Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The Social & Consumer Psychology Masters Program at NYU is located within the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GSAS). The program is a 2 year program with classes given at night, which benefits someone like me who is working full-time. The program offers courses on interesting and diverse topics, such as Psychology of Social Media, Psychology of Branding, Psychology of Market Diversity, Consumer Research Methods, Cognitive Neuroscience and Statistics to name a few. The connections I have made and the knowledge I have gained has been worth the expense of a higher degree.
