Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is great. The cost of living in NYC is astronomical and adds to the stress of completing the program. However, the quality of education and available technology for research at NYU are outstanding.

The administration is ridiculous, and there is not enough guidance to finish in five years.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The PhD program in Psych at NYU has the potential to be great, given the interesting research coming out of the department. However, working in extremely limited facilities with competitive access to lab and office space, no internal funding available to pay research subjects, and a "research focused" program where faculty members are loathe to actually instruct students in any capacity makes it highly unsatisfying, especially during the first years. If you are a student looking to learn during your time in a PhD program, you will likely be disappointed at the level of mentorship available. If you come in with a set research program and just want to power through on your own, you'll probably be fine.

The program lacks sufficient structure and support to complete a doctorate within five years.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program. Excellent professors. The program focuses on expanding your knowledge base while helping you focus on one subject matter. Although the hope remains for you to pursue your PhD after completing the MA, you do have NYC as your background--opportunity to try a different occupation is everywhere!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU Stern is the best business school in the world. It is unrivaled in Finance, extremely strong in marketing and has been the most positive experience in my life.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The MA Art Therapy program at NYU is one of the best in the country. It is fully accredited by AATA and was one of the first to be recognized nationally. New York University is a global education, an investment worth making.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

It is expensive to live in New York City, but the network I'll come away with is unparalleled. The program has been constructed in a manner that allows me to see exactly what my takeaway skills are and how to frame them in a job interview. Each student is required to maintain an internship that helps pay the cost of tuition. This adds real-world experience to the theory learned in the classroom.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: This program is perfect for those requiring a graduate degree in professional studies. It's online modality is appropriate and commensurate to the type of work completed within and subsequent to the completion of this program. Faculty are quite accessible and flexible and I feel well-supported. It is a lot of hard work but this is to be expected of any graduate program. I am very confident in exploring work involving various elements of professional writing including but not limited to businesses that use social media and internet marketing. Everything the program promises students as far as objectives and benefits, thus far, I am very happy to confirm that it fulfills. Cons: This is a new program and the development process can frustrate the student's learning experience. Little issues such as uniform syllabi and rubrics between faculty members that makes the online learning experience less complicated, are not found in other online graduate programs that have been established for a longer period of time. This is a minor setback that will easily be corrected with time and effective use of student feedback and evaluation. The structure of this program could use very separate lecture review and attendance and assignment completion. The structure also really could use the support of faculty assistance (a TA) to filter out student concerns and varied explanations of lectures and assignments. Again, an easy fix that is already being planned for within the next 3-5 years.
