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.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

My Graduate program has many pros and very few cons (at least that I can say so far). One of the biggest pros is the fact that professors are definitely prepared to answer any question a student might have. Professors are smart, detailed in their answers/lessons, and most of the time willing to help you. Another pro is the accessibility students have to advisors. They are very helpful in telling students what classes are best for each major. Students, generally, are very approachable and friendly. One of the biggest cons is the fact that we do not have access to the lab outside of the class period, and so we do not really work independently as I would have expected from a Masters program. This means that experiments that could be done in a few weeks, take extra long for no reason.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

So far I have had a pretty decent experience at NYU. I feel the University has made significant efforts to formulate a community among the graduate students as build relationships to help those students succeed after graduation. I enjoy the small teacher-student ratio and feel that my professors know me, my academic interests, and my strengths and weaknesses well. I do feel the University in general does not have the amount of resources I am used to from my undergraduate University, but NYU is definitely working hard to make all facilities and opportunities better for the students.

New York is a great place for diverse social and networking opportunities. Although, the cost of living is very high, it is an invaluable trade off with the surround resources. Faculty at NYU are currently active in their field of study and each student has a chance to assist in real world professional work. Also, the fast pace of New York City forces you to be very efficient in technology trends, as you will have to use this to to keep up with your daily task and ever changing opportunities.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2018

NYUCD is one of the best dental schools--there is a 100% passing rate for the NBE and the quality of education is reflected in this statistic. Although the class size is large, there are so many resources available and knowledgeable dentists who genuinely want to help each individual. Living in NYC is a large expense, so that is something to be kept in mind, however life in NYC offers so much in terms of cultural experiences.

The city is great and our program is top-notch but it is a very expensive program and the cost of living in the city is high.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The program has many resources but it's up to the student to take advantage of them, you really get out what you put it. It's the kind of program where you want to really understand specifically what you want to do with the degree, for the for-profit track specifically, so you can take advantage if the right internships and connections. It is very possible to coast through a lot of this program, in my opinion.
