Graduation Year: 2014

The professors have been/are still in the business and have invaluable knowledge of not only the theatre community, but the city as well.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The Master of Science in Global Affairs program is a forward thinking and ever progressive program that truly prepares students for professional work in an ever changing world. The program is still relatively new and needs to expand its scope of courses but is very promising and a great success in my opinion.

Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the International Ed program are that many of my peers are themselves International Scholars (enriches the learning environment), TAs and student advisors are both helpful and accessible, course texts are interdisciplinary and cross-cultural, and the school has a great library. Cons are the lack of financial aid and courses can sometimes be too interdisciplinary, placing the responsibility of building foundational knowledge on the student alone.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU has reward winning faculty that are active in the fields in which they teach. The professors are very studious and the level of communication is open. The only con I have is that financial aid is lacking.

New York University is a great school with lots of opportunities for any career path one wants to take. The graduate program challenges students greatly and provides them with renowned faculty that has many years of experience and expertise. The only setback is the cost of the program, especially the graduate programs and lack of scholarships.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2011

The program is relatively large, and you will meet a wide variety of people from different backgrounds who wish to pursue varied careers. The program is structured so that you can have a job while you study -- and you will need it, because NY is pricy and the aid available is not abundant. The professors are brilliant, but not always accessible.

I really enjoyed being in New York, going to Grad school there. The benefits were obviously, for a Theatre major - in education - the education in theatre is vastly more widespread than simply what is available on campus. New York itself is an education, culturally, artistically, in every way. However, it was expensive! Thus, a person has to decide if the cost is worth the experience.
