Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

A graduate education from NYU is seen as prestigious and elite. My experience thus far has been very rewarding and I am only at the beginning of my educational career. Being able to complete my entire degree online is a huge plus, especially as a working professional. The flexibility of the course offerings is great, too. Although the tuition is higher than other institutions and not much financial aide is rewarded, the value of the degree I believe with be worth it in the end.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

A great advantage of my graduate program is that it offers valuable training and formation in my chosen field. As an aspiring researcher in child development, I believe this program gives me excellent training in both statistical and theoretical knowledge . It also provides courses that are often only available at the doctoral level and therefore I feel I can truly be prepared to enter the workforce. A drawback to this program is the limited funding, in terms of scholarships and financial aid. The NYU Master's program in Human Development and Social Intervention is very competitive and I am delighted that I was accepted, but financing my education is my biggest challenge at this time.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

New York University's Silver School of Social Work is a highly renowned institution for preparing qualified and motivated students to reach a broad spectrum of individuals who rely on a system that often ignores or mistreats them. The staff and faculty are highly educated and dedicated professors who are passionate about service to others. Although the tuition and cost of living is extremely expensive, the education and field experience that I am receiving is well worth the sacrifices that I have had to make in order to obtain it.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2014

There are 10 different graduate journalism programs at NYU that each take somewhere between 12-15 students each year. They are pretty competitive to get into but are definitely worth the fight. The workload is pretty heavy and there is not a lot of free time to get out and explore New York City, but you can make time to do certain things. I typically have about 12-16 hours of class each week which requires a lot of preparation but all of the classes have been really informative and interesting. I came into the program with no journalism background so I had to work hard to keep up at first, but it has been a very valuable learning experience thus far. NYU is in New York in the Village, which is a really fun and exciting part of the city. The only real downside is that NYU doesn't offer a great deal of graduate housing so I had to find a place to live off campus that was reasonably close.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

This program has excellent teachers and great classes but is still working out some of the kinks as it's still rather new.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

An amazing program with many research opportunities within the school and other institutions in the area. Classes are small giving students the opportunity to interact with their professors and other students. The perfect transition for those students interested in pursuing a phd.

Although the cost of living in New York can break the bank, the quality of education and opportunity to put what you learn to practice is right at your front door. It's a brilliant way to launch your academic career!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

I recently applied and was admitted to the Masters in Music Business Program at NYU Steinhardt, but went to NYU as an undergraduate and have done extensive research on the graduate program. Pros of the program include a fantastic class selection; a wonderful area conducive to submersing oneself in music, one’s area of study, and all aspects of living in a true metropolis; and a fantastic faculty full of scholars and professionals successfully working in the music industry. However, the cons include a high tuition rate and expensive rates of living (although not unexpected in New York City); morbid rates of financial aid assistance; and an antiquated bureaucracy.

Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Great location in New York City, great diversity of people in the program, lots of opportunities for internships in the city for this career focus Cons are mainly related to the price of living in the city, but that's already common knowledge.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2015

Living in New York City is extremely expensive. It is very difficult to be a student in such a place. The program at NYU SCPS is amazing! All the professors are masters in their field and it has be a pleasure learning from them!
