Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

NYU Law offers a rigorous legal education with excellent clinical and extra-curricular opportunities in public interest. Faculty and staff care about students and are committed to helping students learn and succeed in their careers. Additionally, NYU's location is fantastic for professional opportunities, and the school attracts incredible guest speakers who work in, or are traveling through, the city.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

NYUs impact on my life thus far has been extraordinary: after several years out of school and unsure about what steps I might take next in my career, my masters degree at NYU helped me develop the mastery, confidence, and professional connections to apply for and receive a doctoral fellowship in my field. My classes were taught by established professors who took a genuine interest in my work and matched my own motivation with their support and encouragement. The rapport among my cohort at NYU is extraordinarily vibrant, amicable, and inspiring; it has taught me, among other things, the value of an active and constructive intellectual community in strengthening ones progress and motivation.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

New York University - Stern Business School was an incredible experience which provided me with the well-rounded business education I was looking for. You will be challenged by your talented peers and professors in a collegial environment that stresses team work and group work. I found the quality of the lectures to be overall excellent and the course load manageable. If there was one negative, it would be that the career services tend to be focused more towards the full-time MBA students. As a part-time Langone student, you have less access to on-campus recruiting and other career opportunities.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2018

A degree from New York University in Museum Studies is a major stepping stone towards a successful career in any of the varying fields within museums. Located in the heart of Manhattan, NYU offers numerous opportunities to its students, with learned and experienced faculty, and countless local museums with which to make connections.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU is a great university, but they offer poor financial aid for graduate students. I graduated with a MS in Mathematics from them in 2015, but went back to obtain a PhD in Mechanical Engineering (dynamical systems/control theory specialty). I'm considering switching to another school, however, due to the lack of financial support.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I encourage those who are seeking to become school counselors to look into NYU Steinhardt. I am a full-time student, currently in the 2 year masters in counseling and guidance K-12 program. So far, I have been learning so much through my professors, the different experiences and course work. Indeed, the work is rigorous and requires a diligent and determined student. The education I have been receiving at Steinhardt has been excellent. There are many resources available to every student to meet their needs and lead them to success. Steinhardt implements a curriculum which includes in-class lectures and assessments, as well as mandatory practicum and internships which enhance our experience in this program. The goal of most students by the end of the program is to become future competent school counselors.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

Silver School of Social Work is a community of diverse graduate students who provide one another with ongoing support and encouragement. I am truly grateful to be a part of a university that values my commitment to serving populations nationally and internationally.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

NYU is a top tier institution in one of the most vibrant cities in the world. I was impressed by the excellence of the faculty in my program who had decades of experience either working or researching in our field of study. One of my instructors studied at MIT and worked with some of the greatest minds in the learning sciences of our time. Other faculty members held esteemed careers in our industry, and worked for major educational institutions, museums, and educational technology companies. While I was impressed with the faculty, I thought the cohort of students left something to be desired. I was enrolled in a part-time program and expected to be engaged with more mature, working professionals. Instead, my masters program was mostly students who recently graduated college and lacked real-world experience. Since the program was mostly team oriented, this made group work challenging and the opportunity to network professionally limiting. My program also had a weak career development component so there was not a clear pathway after graduation to employment and no requirement for an internship made finding a job more challenging. All told, I enjoyed studying at NYU, and felt the faculty were the strongest component of my experience. The program I studied in was otherwise not thoughtfully constructed. It lacked the academic rigor I expected from NYU, and the student population in my program was not created to accomplish an effective cohort.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2019

The Creative Writing program at NYU is impressive: the caliber of the professors can be intimidating at first -- they're people whose novels, short stories and poems you've probably been reading already. But the program is set up so that you get to interact with them in a personal but low-pressure way through in-person ten-day workshops; the feedback on your writing comes not only from the professors, but from your fellow students, so you benefit from lots of points of view. Then you're assigned a mentor for each semester that you're in the program, which means you get to work with one specific person for a period of several months. They become familiar with your work, and you have a chance to grow in a particular direction under their tutelage. But then another semester starts and you get a fresh perspective! It's such a wonderful opportunity to get a lot of very experienced, talented eyes on your own work and become the best writer you can possibly be.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

New York University College of Global Public Health is a great program with great faculty who are willing to take the time to mentor, help and encourage students pursue their desired career paths. The college also offers great networking with different organizations, events and speakers on topics relating to public health. The university is also located in New York City where there are a lot of opportunities to work with well known organizations.
