Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that the pros of my graduate program are the accessibility of having it online and in person once a month presently. It makes it a lot easier to go at your own pace. Cons would have to be that although the program is online it can present for difficulties in terms of the real world classroom experience.

The graduate program at Pace University is adequate, as I do not have experience with graduate programs at other schools. I wish it was a little more diverse, but I'm there to get a degree, not to socialize. Its conveniently located near many train lines, and has convenient gym facilities.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: My commute to my school is 50+ miles one way. However, my school has a intra-campus shuttle, that leaves at a reasonable time where I can get out of work,drive to campus, park the car in the commuter lot, ride the shuttle to my home campus AND get to class on time. It also picks me from my home campus, drives me back to the other campus, so I can pick up my car and drive home. I honestly can say I don't know how I'd be able to make it to and from, without this system in place. It is my lifeline! Also, my professors are reasonable, practical people. Of course, some professors are more stellar than others, but they ALL know what they are lecturing on, and hold highly respectable positions in their other professions. They don't give busy work,because they realize that would hurt them just as much as the students. A few of the students in the program are humble people, if you need help and they know how to help, they will. They know that no man is an island unto himself, and that we are in this together. With that mentality we are able to do better academically, not feeling embarrassed. Cons: My school doesn't have any scholarships/grants for graduate students. So the only aid is loans. My school's tuition and other fees are exorbitant! (1 credit= $1,024). To put it in perspective, if I were a student at CUNYJohn Jay College my cost would be $365 per credit. I refuse to take out any loans knowing that I would have to be paying the interest compounded on what my school is asking for. That is why I am struggling to pay for my tuition by working. Lastly, we also don't receive some of the perks that undergraduates receive. As I mentioned previously, that undergraduates receive school scholarships. They also receive an incentive to sign up for summer courses. Their classes are at least $600 less during the summer season. Graduate students are excluded.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

Cons: Very limited amount of classes is offered. Almost no online classes. Most of the students are Pace employees, so no opportunity to meet media professionals. Commute is just awful unless you have a car. Late classes. Pros: A lot of good teachers. 36 credit MA program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

Pace is in downtown Manhattan where business connections and opportunities are unriveled. The ability to work with amazing professors and then literally walk out the door to endless opportunities is the best part about Pace.

Degree: Liberal Arts

Overall, the school prides itself on the development of the skills necessary to launch a successful acting, directing and writing career. I would say that the program is well-organized and works to serve the students during and beyond their time while studying.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

Pace University's BBA/MBA Accounting graduate program is amazing and I’m glad I had the opportunity to be accepted into it. The pros of the program are its accelerated worksheet to enable me to complete my masters in just one year. I can say that all the professors in my graduate program care about their students and that they are actually learning and not just earning a letter grade. In addition, a hand full of the professors have worked in big accounting companies and have their CPAs so they understand what I need to learn and they are almost like mentors guiding me along my path to becoming a CPA. All the advisors that assist with the program always make sure that students such as me are registering for the correct classes so that we stay on track. Also, my professors will always make time to work any student outside of class of class to make sure the student fully comprehends what is going on in the lecture. Pace University offers many scholarships to graduate students to help with the cost of tuition. The only con is that Pace University does not have enough teachers or classrooms. Many classes during registration get filled to capacity fairly fast causing registering to be a little difficult. Thus they need to expand while still attaining excellent professors.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the forensic science graduate program at Pace University are that some of the faculty you interact with have worked in the forensic science field. They were able to give a more realistic lesson on the actual field work and not just theory. The faculty are good for networking purposes too for after graduation. The major con of the program include that the forensic science graduate program isn't accredited yet.
