Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Pace University is a highly competitive university, in terms of both education and value. My specific program at the School of Education is full of welcoming and helpful professionals who are eager to get to know their students and assist them in any way they can.

New York is central to the publishing business, and Pace has taken advantage of their location to build a great program. They strive to teach current issues, and encourage students to engage with the very opportunistic environment around them. The program is small, which could be considered a con, but in it's size there is also a richness of community, which is essential to publishing; it's all about relationships and networking. Because most staff are adjunct professors, it can be difficult to know what to expect from classes. Some of the new professors have been excellent, while others have been pretty terrible. Ultimately, though, the program seeks to give its students professionals in the business, it's just unfortunate that it's a hit or miss process. The career connections and opportunities that Pace affords its students are amazing. Internships are plentiful and job openings are shared on the program blog. Student connections are also a great way to get connected to an internship or job. The community is pretty good here, and is full of opportunities while being surrounded by students who love what you love.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe the pros certainly outweigh the cons of the MA program I'm completing at Pace University - Pleasantville. For starters, the program does a great job of staffing faculty members who have valuable real-life experience in the field and great contacts and networking opportunities. The feedback you receive on your projects and assignments are very helpful and helps you improve as a communicator. Courses are always available whether in class, online, or in a hybrid model. The class room sizes are relatively small as well so you get a more personable relationship with your professors and classmates. The biggest and only real con I have is the tuition. At over $1100 a credit, it becomes real expensive and taxing on the average student like myself.

The unique location of Pace University's New York campus provides the opportunity for you to really see what you are learning in the classroom put to work all around you. The internship possibilities are endless, putting you in a superior position to gain full time employment after graduating.

The school is expensive in an expensive city. Hopefully its a good value once I finished.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2018

The career / internships opportunities are amazing. Finding a job is not a problem when the campus is located within the heart of the financial district of New York City. Safety is also not an issue when NYPD headquarters is located across the street. New York City itself has a very diverse culture. All different types of races and nationalities. This helps the campus stay very diverse. Traveling is not an issue around the campus; however parking is. Leave your car at home. Majority of the students don't drive. There is no need for it when the city has a subway system and taxi services. Tuition is pricey, as well as the city itself.

Graduation Year: 2016

Pace University provides an in depth learning community. The professors really give you a hands on learning experience and truly want you to succeed. They will go above and beyond what is required of them to help you learn and understand what they are teaching. Plus having the campus in New York city is a big plus for finding internships and work study programs.
