Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros- NYU offers an incredibly rich amount of resources for the various interests of all students. The social work program challenges you to grow personally and academically as well. The professors are generally very open to discussion and differences of opinions, which makes for a very interesting learning environment. I have also found that they are usually very open to meeting with students if an extra consultation outside of the classroom is requested. The program truly challenges you to become self-aware in ways that you never envisioned. It is no longer just a "clinical" school of social work, as the options for year two have expanded to allow a student to take macro or micro paths if they so desire. The resources are endless, and the program even has a dedicated librarian to help you with research if necessary. Cons- One of the biggest cons of the program (and this probably applies to other Social Work graduate programs as well) is that you are expected to go right into field placement and manage actual clients. More often than not, the clients require clinical work which a majority of us are not trained to do. You are learning theory and applying as you go along. The problem with this, however, is that a first year student may be given a client who has a high degree of mental illness, even though they are at a first year placement- a real life situation with real life consequences. While the school does its best to fit students with their background, education and experience, it seems to me that a more reasonable approach would be to postpone field placement until the second semester of the first year. This way, a student has more opportunity to get their bearings on the basics and get prepared to deal with some of the situations that they will encounter. While this strategy does not provide any guarantees, it would give the professors and students the opportunity to share information, experiences that may better prepare a student intern to deal with real clients. Taking this road would be beneficial to both the clinician in training and the clients who see them as an authority figure.

This program will not only prepare you for the work force but provide the kind of credentials and support necessary to build a strong network and maintain upward mobility.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The NYU program for a Master of Science in Translation is excellent. Given that it is strictly online, I could only judge certain aspects from a limited point of view (such as social life). The courses and their respective professors have been nothing but top tier, and the workload, although challenging, is necessary and productive for becoming a successful translator. I highly recommend the program to anyone considering a career path in translation.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The part-time MBA program is a good experience for those who want to keep working and going to school. The great faculty at Stern is still the same that teaches the program. Education wise is undiminished if not enriched by the experiences of other working professionals in the classroom. However, there are some factors which diminish the overall experience. The kind of support available for the full time students is not quite available for the part-timers in regards to job search, use of campus lockers etc. But as a plus, the school is actively working to improve this. I would like to eventually see the same level of integration experienced at Chicago Booth and Northwestern Kellogg in this same program.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

New York University is an excellent institution with several resources and opportunities to offer students. The location in the heart of New York City is unbeatable, although living expenses will be higher than schools outside of the city, and financial aid is very minimal. The faculty are more than willing to help students with academics and networking, however, it is up to the students to reach out for support. The student body in the program is very diverse, offering a broad range of world views and life experiences inside and outside the classroom. Overall, if students can afford living expenses and the cost of tuition, this is a high quality program with excellent opportunities to grow academically and build a professional network in New York City.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is very exclusive mostly because the field of archiving and preservation of moving images (audiovisual works like film, video and audio) is still unknown. However, I am gaining so much experience through the internships and the projects in these courses. Students definitely delve into technical fields with metadata and hands on work as well as academic fields.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program and school but it comes at a hefty price, both through tuition and living in New York. If you are fine with loans or can afford it NYU is a wonderful opportunity.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is a really great way to immerse yourself into the field of journalism. The professors here are all really great about helping you succeed and pushing you to reach your potential. The workload is heavy, but it's not impossible just a lot of hard work. If you want a social life you have to work at it because it's definitely not built into the program, but NYU is in Greenwich Village which is a really fun and artsy place filled with lots of things to discover and explore.
