Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent program for those wanting to pursue a career in translation. Online courses provide students with freedom and flexibility all the while proving to be adequately challenging.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The affordability of campus living/off campus living is very high (that is expected in New York). I do not feel like NYU has a strong sense of community. Otherwise, I think the faculty and university challenge their students to their academic potential. There is academic competition and the quality of your education is amazing.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

New York University is a wonderful school filled with many bright and talented individuals. It has been a great experience learning from the faculty and interacting with other scholars. The school surrounds Washington Square Park, which is a beautiful view while studying. The downsides are the steep expenses of the school as well as the great amount of workload placed on students, but these aspects are expected with any prestigious institution.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program is that it is a small program compose of only 8 people. This means that the attention that we all have towards the program is very focused. We have connected and use each other as resources for our individual projects. The program also provides a curriculum that encourages intensive work within our fields. The cons: Because we are a new program at NYU, there is sometimes unclarity on what needs to happen. However, this means that we are developing the program as we go which is very exciting. Not sure if its a total con.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Some of the pros in the Silver School of NYU graduate program include the faculty members, who come from a range of diverse practices within the field. Silver School has its own separate building, where all social work classes are held making it very convenient to attend classes. The graduate level courses and curriculum are very relevant to the field work. Silver has a wide range of field placements and it is a very clinically oriented program for those who are interested in Clinical Social Work. Some cons of the program are that grants and scholarships are very limited. Also, the student population within the program is not too diverse.
