Student & Graduate Reviews

4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Great college for students who want to study innovatively. Although the tuition fees are high, it is all worth at the end.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2009

NYU was good as a grad school. I'm not sure if if it would be a great school to attend as an undergrad.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

New York University's Silver School of Social Work has opened my eyes to a whole new field! As an undergraduate musical theater major, I didn't have any idea that I would later be studying Social Work at a place like NYU. The Silver School offers a 16 month accelerated MSW program that has allowed me to fast-track my path to becoming a professional social worker. I am interested in utilizing my masters along with my bachelor's degree to provide theater education to young people in low income communities. I have felt very supported at NYU despite my unconventional background and look forward to bringing all the great information I'm learning out into the field next May!

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

I love this school. The biology program has a long history of great work. The current faculty are very supportive and approachable. The department also has strong ties to the medical school located on 33rd street. It's amazing to be around top class scientists and physicians. If you plan to enter medicine or science, definitely think strongly about coming here. You're in the heart of Manhattan and will receive a world class education.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I would highly recommend New York University's Masters in Social Work program because of the caliber of instruction and guidance that many of the professors provide to students. A Masters degree in Social Work is focused not only on learning how to best support individual clients, families, and communities. It sets the student on a path of self-discovery and self-knowledge in service of building healthy therapeutic relationships. The professors and staff at NYU Silver School of Social Work are passionate and dedicated to helping student learn and grow through that journey.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

New York University offered a plethora of opportunities to learn and grow as a student. They email networking opportunities as well as outside learning opportunities. There's a strong sense of social justice within the school. There are very high expectations of their students and the workload is much higher than other schools (so I hear).
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2016

I was in the chemistry department. The PHD program lasts from 5-8 years depending on your principle investigator. The first one-two year you take classes. During the first semester you are required to do two rotations in different labs to decided what group you want to join. In the spring semester of your first year you officially join a lab where you will spend the rest of your graduate degree. In the spring of your second year you take an oral exam called the qualifying examination to become a PHD candidate. Then usually in your 5th year or when you are ready to graduate you take the Pre-Defense. It consists of two parts: oral presentation describing your research and then the original proposal presentation. You need to submit an outline of your thesis and a written original proposal. If you pass the Pre-Defense you can do the Defense six months later. Once you write your thesis and submit it to your committee you can Defend.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2019

I am new to the Center for Experimental Humanities at NYU, but I am thrilled to be a part of such an interdisciplinary and wide-ranging program. My focus is on music and social justice, and this program not only encourages, but nearly requires me to take half of my credits from other Graduate Programs within New York University. The encouragement, energy, and excitement that I have received from advisors taking an interest in my passions is inspiring and affirming. Within a huge university, this program has managed to maintain a small liberal arts college feel with small class sizes, great access to professors, and gentle guidance when necessary.
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2017

New York University Sports Business program offers direct access to academic, internship, and professional development in the heart of the city and the sports industry. This program provides invested students with knowledgeable, industry-versed professors that are readily equipped to develop the next generation of sports industry professionals.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I just started at NYU's on line, and the support is phenomenal so far. I am definitely challenged academically in this program and very impressed with how thorough the faculty and additional staff have been. The IT staff have been incredible as well.,
