Student & Graduate Reviews

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.

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.

Graduation Year: 2016

For me in particular, the con of this program is the communte I will have to make. Because the school is already expensive enough, living on or near campus is not an option since there is no way I would be able to afford it. Also, being that it's only a two and a half year program, it's going to be very intense and will have a heavy workload. However, NYU's occupational therapy program is one of the best in the world, so I will be getting a remarkable education out of it, which will make it all worth it.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

A great pro of my graduate program is that I am allowed to take classes from outside of my program as well, making for a well-rounded education. A big con is the cost of the program and the inaccessibility of faculty.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

The education and experience being provided at NYU college of dentistry is phenomenal, but the financial burden is extreme. With so many loans taken out, its hard to focus on just the education when thinking of the financial burden.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2014

I think my graduate program is very comprehensive. I like the diversity of classes that are available to me and I love my research library.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a very unique program that feels like it's shaped and molded just for me and my specific interests.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2010

I really enjoyed my time at NYU. This program is a great way to springboard into the music business. You will have plenty of opportunities to intern and network here. The major downside is that your starting salary upon graduation is likely to be pretty low. But with a few years of perseverance, you can have a great music industry job that pays well too.
