Student & Graduate Reviews

3.33 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

The Pros of NYU is that the student population is very diverse, the location, and the branding on your resume. The faculty is very helpful and there are many research opportunities. The Cons of NYU was the price (including tuition, books, living, food).

The school has a great reputation that meets the expectations of what the program should be. The school is in a centralized location which is beneficial for building a social life as well as networking. However, the cost of living is high and the city life can be busy.

Thus far, my experience as a graduate student in Steinhardt's TESOL program has been both challenging and enriching. I have developed a great rapport with both my colleagues and professors. Additionally, the Department of Teaching and Learning provides a lot of support in terms of career opportunities for students who are in the Multilingual Multidisciplinary Studies Program (this includes TESOL). I find my classes to be appropriately challenging. However, I feel that Steinhardt could have incorporated more methods classes into their curriculum for students who have no prior teaching experience or backgrounds in Education. Otherwise, I think this is a great program and would highly recommend this program at NYU to anyone interested in teaching ESL.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU is a large school in a city, thus providing its students with many educational and extracurricular activities. Such a well-known school is good for networking opportunities.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Overall, New York University's Silver School of Social Work provides great opportunities for professional development, socialization, and network opportunities. While diversity is encouraged, the student body does not have enough diversity, but this is the case with most places of higher education. NYU staff is knowledgeable, approachable, and caring. They go out of their way to provide students with an excellent education. Do not be afraid to ask for what you need, within reason of course, but NYU allows and encourages students to advocate for themselves and voice their needs and opinions freely.

Graduation Year: 2010

I actually really enjoyed the program at NYU for the most part. Good professors that made themselves, most of the time, available for interaction was a big plus. The major downside of this program in my life has been the cost. Financial aid was almost non-existent and having the name "New York University" has not actually helped me at all in finding a competitively salaried job. If you have the resources to attend the program, I recommend it for the diversity of students and general quality of the professors. If you don't have the resources, however, I'd recommend looking elsewhere for a degree in this field--the jobs just don't pay enough to make it worthwhile.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

My program has an excellent reputation, along with an extremely responsive, supportive, and knowledgeable faculty. I wouldn't have chosen anywhere else, especially considering the field work and student teaching placements in truly diverse and urban schools. The only gripe one might have is that the cost of living is so expensive in the NYC area, but it's a price to pay for the enriching experience of living in the grandest city ever!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros 1. The staff is really there when you need them. Every department was great at following through and you really got the sense that they were looking out for you. 2. The student body is helpful and informative. 3. The faculty is completely knowledgeable and do not waste your time in class. Cons 1. Not too many Hispanic students accepted in the program.
