Degree: Fine Arts

This program is great for anyone who wants to learn more about how to use technology creatively!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

The most valuable part of my graduate education has been the school's connections to outside agencies and resources. They are well-established in the social-work world and have high-quality internships. The professors are top-of-the-line (I often find myself reading for class and recognizing the name of the author as one of our professors). The biggest drawback has been the lack of academic rigor. While I do feel I am learning through my experiences and discussions, I find the workload to be too easy and I feel I'd be absorbing a lot more if I had to work a little harder for it

An excellent and reputable program. Last year's graduating cohort all secured jobs by start of school year. Extremely supportive faculty and network. Great opportunities available as a student and following completion of program. Diverse community with lots to do socially, as well.

NYU is ten times more organized and competent then most other grad schools I applied for. The level of education combined with their passion for student success make for a great future. Apply for scholarships soon!

Great education but price tag is also quite high. Location is ideal but also very expensive
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

I think the program, Performance Studies, is the best in the world, and I will be able to learn what I hope. In addition, the surroundings which the school has is good for students in art field to get inspired. Moreover, there are diversity students from all over the world, which means I can broaden my eyes with social activities in New York University. However, the tuition is a little expensive with the living cost. As an international student, there are some limitation to get scholarships and part-time jobs. Although I can have many opportunities in pursuing my goal in New York University, but there is a disadvantage in that international students should expense cost a lot.

It's New York City; this is both a pro and a con. The expense of living is outrageous, but Manhattan is the magazine capital of the world.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I am confident that obtaining a MPA at Wagner will provide me with a grounding in nonprofit management and policy that will be crucial to my ability to strengthen my leadership, management and advocacy. At Wagner, I will have a unique opportunity to learn from practitioners who are leading scholars in a variety of disciplines while exploring innovative strategies, best practices, and bold new concepts in the public service arena. Its course schedules are flexible and will accommodate my busy professional and personal schedules, providing me with the opportunity to continue working while simultaneously realizing my academic aspirations. At the same time, the increase cost in regards to tuition related expenses had made it so difficult that I had to defer enrollment to enable me opportunity to explore alternative funding opportunity.
