This is a highly competitive program that prepares their students well for the field of social work.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU has most of the benefits and drawbacks of New York City itself--great location, numerous cultural and social opportunities, access to big thinkers (if they have time for you), events, and institutions. Perhaps because of the hustle and bustle of the city, faculty availability varies widely, though there seems to be no strong general culture of mentoring graduate students. The atmosphere is at times poisonously competitive, although most grad students share comparable funding. Grad students have rather incredible flexibility on their teaching load as a result of a somewhat complicated ongoing attempt by the administration to prevent students from successfully forming a union. For now, this situation is a boon to quality of life, but it may have negative consequences down the road.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

The department of politics at NYU has one of the greatest scholarship program in the world. The scholarship covers all from tuition to stipend. And it is given to all the Ph.D student without exception. And the faculty members are really leading scholars in their fields. New DGS is very competitive and nice. He is improving the program much better in terms of the quality of dissertation, job market preparation and performance. NYU Politics is the one of the best Ph.D program in the world.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU Politics offers a very particular PhD program focused on quantitative methods and formal modeling. This might not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you are willing to engage in it, you'll get a very good training in those sub fields.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2008

The best thing in the Econ Ph. D. at NYU was the quality and accessibility of the faculty. From what I heard from people from other programs, it seems that professors at NYU are much more accessible than in other places.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

It's expensive as all get out, but I can only hope it's worth it.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

Excellent program but definitely over-priced and could be better career support.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The real value of NYU is in the opportunities that it offers - the NYC experience, networking, internships and jobs, and a diverse set of professors and classmates. The academics - at least in my program - are no better than average and the professors don't always put their knowledge/experience to best use in the classroom. So be prepared to get your education through the incredible opportunities that NYU provides because it's not going to be handed to you in the classroom.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The NYU-SCPS Graphic Communications Management and Technology program is a strong program that proves very useful for working professionals looking to enhance their careers. This highly personalized degree program proves an excellent resource for those seeking to enhance their careers in communications in the printing industry, social media and public relations realm, or even broadcast TV. The network of professors and mentors is incredible- generally speaking, these professors are the leaders in their industries or company owners who come in to teach a class after they have finished a long day at their own company. Everyone in this program- fellow students, administration, and faculty- are willing to do whatever it takes to help you succeed. If you ned help financing your program with scholarships, want to run a business plan by an executive, or simply want to meet other like-minded individuals at social events- the Graphic Communications family is there to support you. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is trying to elevate their career. NYU's focus on success after graduation in a global environment never ceases to amaze me.
