Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Great Program, great teachers. Cons: very expensive
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I returned to school after a long hiatus and a desire for a career upgrade. The classes in my program have been informational and have succeed in giving me the historic background I desired in the field of costume studies. It would be great if there were other courses in media studies, and digital archiving added to the course to strengthen its value.

I love that my grad program is really specific; Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. There are some awesome professors who are passionate about what they teach and care about their studetns. However, sometimes there are administrational problems- such as not so clear direction on how to correctly drop a class. I had to go through so many loops to drop this one course, last semester, and it was awful. None the less, the location makes everything better, though.

The program does a great job at selecting students with incredible intellect and ability, but also with supportive, collaborative and encouraging personalities. The administration is well organized and approachable. The professors are articulate, clear and challenging.

Great program with a ton of great networking capabilities. The cost of living and educating yourself is very high!
2.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the Art Therapy Graduate Program at New York University is the supportive staff currently is working in their field of study professionally, beyond that of the classroom setting. In addition, the program is small and intimate at most 23 students are usually admitted, this allows for further personal attention academically. This program has a summerstudy abroad program that allows students to earn internship credit abroad and learn cultural competence and how to apply art therapy across diverse settings. Cons of the graduate program in Art Therapy have been some disorganization in securing fieldwork and internship placements that are current and up to date. However, this issue is slowly becoming resolved. There are also no scholarship opportunities awarded in this program area upon admittance to the academic program. This program could benefit by having a stronger networking system and administrative support related to the job search process prior to graduation.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2014

I'm in the Global & Joint Studies program in the Journalism department-- a joint degree program between journalism and a social studies department. I particularly like my program because it allows me to study both journalism and an additional field of interest. It's a rare program/opportunity, and it's definitely a 'pro' to NYU's journalism department. There are difficulties, however, in enrolling in certain journalism classes as a result. Each journalism program sponsors (for lack of a better word) classes each semester-- students of that program then get first dibs. This works to the benefit of students in every program but GloJo which usually does not sponsor/organize courses aside from the basic introductory classes required. The faculty and staff of the department and program, however, are phenomenal. They work very closely with students and due to their connections you get experiences and connections and opportunities you can't get nearly anywhere else. The program is by no means cheap, and living in NYC is not cheap either, but I think in the end having a degree from NYU probably pays itself off.

NYU is great, the only negative is the high tuition.
