Degree: Visual Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The Graduate Program for the Cinema Studies Department at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts / GSAS is both challenging and exciting. The professors and guests lecturers bring with them world-class experience, job/internship opportunities, and a willingness to help and engage with students of all backgrounds. Certainly, it would only help if this program's financial aid could cover all or most of the expenses related to school tuition, fees, textbooks, etc., allowing full time graduate students to focus completely and most thoroughly on their work, research, and academic/professional projects, some of which involve extensive travel throughout the United States and abroad to other film institutions. It is my sincere hope to successfully pass the MA Comprehensive Exam, and thus receive the anticipated M.A. Degree from Tisch/GSAS.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The Global Affairs program has many pros and cons. In the pros column, the program has an excellent network. Many of the students who graduated from the program are working in the field of global affairs and are providing a network to those currently in the program. Another pro is that the program is relatively small, so the professors get to know their students well and get to know their areas of interest more accurately. Diversity is another pro. Students in the program come from various backgrounds: international students, career changers, those already working in the field of global affairs. I would say that the major cons are cost and lack of social environment. Students commute from all corners of the New York region, so it makes it difficult to form a student community on campus.

The Media, Culture and Communication Masters program at NYU is an excellent, academically rigorous program. It is particularly well-suited for scholars interested in digital technologies and new media. About half of incoming students plan to remain in academia, and the other half intend to enter the workforce in the field of media, marketing, or as cultural critics.

I am glad that I chose NYU for grad school. The program is great, and faculty and staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Along with the courses NYU has great outside opportunities to attend events that fit with my studies and access to professionals in the field I wish to work in. It is also a great mix of international students.

Degree: Political Science

NYU is great and as you know is a very well known university. Getting an education here will get you somewhere in life but be prepared to pay the cost of studying here.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2014

Not for people with ambitious academic career goals. Better for industry, intellectual property, consulting, etc. Faculty are not exceptional teachers, easily frustrated and quick to conclude students are lazy. Very political, better for students adept at reading people and navigating social situations. Funding is inadequate for location, student housing options also inadequate. Faculty are friendly outside of teaching. Most faculty are very hands off, few micromanagers. Great location for what little social life you have, despite being poor.

This program is extremely hands on. It provides many networking opportunities and grows you in all areas of acting, directing and teaching. The professors are amazing and are always there to help.

This is been the best experience of my life and I wouldn't change a thing. The only con is that New York is expensive.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

The area is really great, but the academic setting of NYU is not challenging and it feels like I am merely paying for a degree
