Sarah Lawrence College is a unique and rewarding institution. Although it may have a lot of work to do interns of diversity, inclusion, and equity, this school provides the opportunity for an individual to develop educational opportunities as he/she sees fit. Great professors with warm and welcome hearts. This is the place to make your education dreams come true, but you have to work for it.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the Sarah Lawrence Master's of Theatre Program are how diverse the curriculum and performance possibilities are. The theatre program has a beautiful history of creating original works and supporting artist who take risks and make bold choices. The program is the right size to be able to make good work and have an audience for it and you get quality time with your professors. I was able to make valuable professional contacts in the department with people who support my work and my values.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The majors pros for this graduate program include the attentiveness of the faculty, the small class sizes, the support of graduate research and study, as well as the overall caliber of the institution. The cons of this program is most definitely financial aid and cost of living.

Degree: Performing Arts

The faculty alone is worth the price tag. They are willing to help, willing to listen, and willing to push their students beyond their comfort zones into new artistic explorations. The facilities could use a facelift, but students have full access to everything there, provided they get in line. There is some competition with undergrads for resources, and many of the classes that graduate theatre students take are shared with undergrads as well as other grad students. Thankfully the undergrads at Sarah Lawrence tend to be quick thinkers and so do not weigh down the caliber of the classes too much. The program is all about exploration within the art form, and so however strange the ideas might be, each student is encouraged to make their dreams manifest. If you're interested in exploring all aspects of theatre and working towards being a whole theatre artist, this program is well worth it.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the size of the program (~25 students). Allows the students to have a diverse educational experience as well as plenty of one-on-one time with the educators. The only con of the Human Genetics Program at Sarah Lawrence is that it is quite expensive and there are no teachers aide/research associate positions available due to the size of the school (small, liberal arts college).

Ultimately Sarah Lawerence expounds a learning environment that is without testing or grading or structure. In my program what this led to was a lack of clarity, lots of disorganization and frustration.

Sarah Lawrence is a great school with a wonderful reputation, especially in the field of Health Advocacy. The school is a private college therefore it is more expensive then a public school but I believe that the expense is well worth it.

Very thorough and challenging program. Sometimes professors can be a little unclear about expectations and are not as willing to help outside of class.
