PROS: -Professors do not want students to fail; they are willing to help students and encourage students to contact them if they have any questions or issues. -Course load is a bit reasonable if going part time; lots of reading, group assignments, papers, and exams. So far, I have learned a lot about the HR field and I am loving it! -The Wasserman career center offers tons of job opportunities and student employment. The center also offers lots of prep classes (ex: interview prep, cover letter and resume building, etc) -Career advisers are very involved and help create your schedule and make sure you are on the right track to graduate on time. CONS: -Very expensive. -Need more study areas and computer labs.

NY is extremely expensive for many Latin American students. I am a Latin American woman. The program is incredibly well planned and it has awesome academic resources.

More often than not the workload is unmanageable. The faculty are so smart, supportive, and nice.

I like a lot my graduate program, is challenging and NYU has many good professors. The only problem is that everything is very expensive.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Great resources, excellent faculty and couldn't ask for a better location. Programs to facilitate undergraduate research are lacking though. Also, the Masters program seems to have less access to resources than the PhD program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

Overall, the NYU Silver School of Social Work's program is rigorous and extremely valuable. The academic coursework molds students into social work professionals who become and stay competitive in the workplace. The program has a well balanced curriculum, which addresses the applied techniques necessary for high quality hands-on clinical work, as well as the theory and policy that help clinician's offer services in a rich and dynamic manner.

Pros to the program are that it offers a close-knit community. Students and faculty are very supportive of one another and offer resources. Cons to the program is the lack of connection to the university as a whole.
