Student & Graduate Reviews

3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

A lot of good things happening at Maxwell, but changes with the University as a whole could enhance the program.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2013

The MS program is very rigorous. If you are willing to put in a lot of time and effort you will have good opportunities at graduation. There are a good number of internship opportunities in the local area. The program is very flexible and the elective courses are relevant in the workplace.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2014

Best Creative Writing MFA in the country. Amazing faculty who are incredibly accessible and care not only about your work, but about your life and how it affects your work. Wonderful peers who give their all in every class and workshop. No cons to report.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The quality of the professors and the opportunities provided through the program are unparalleled. The graduate program is rigorous and the coursework is practical and relevant. The knowledge gained is directly applied in a supervised clinical setting. The only downfall is the cost, but funding is readily available for first-years and top-notch researchers welcome students onto their teams with the added benefit of a stipend.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel as though this program was designed just for me. It allows me to merge my love of communications with my love of business and better juxtapose them for both my career on a personal level as well as to benefit my current and future employers. I really enjoy the flexibility of the program and its unique mix of on-campus and online components.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2014

The public relations program is in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. The professors are great and I have learned a lot about the PR world. Both the professors and administrators are always accessible and offer support whenever you reach out to them. The workload is not too overwhelming and you actually get the opportunity to work with real clients while relating all assignments to the real world. The biggest con of this program is the cost of tuition at SU. The school doesn't offer very much in financial aid and seems to make it difficult to receive. However, the opportunity to become part of the vast network of Newhouse alums, with their desire to help fellow Newhouse grads, is worth the cost if you are genuinely passionate about the communications field.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The Library and Information Science program at Syracuse is fantastic. The content we're learning is relevant, and they are preparing us to actually get a job, not just learn theory and things that won't help us in the long run.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The Library and Information Science program at Syracuse University is a fantastic program. They are not only teaching you the classes on the profession, but are helping us build our resumes and portfolios to get jobs after we graduate. They offer networking and career fairs, along with career seminars to help us in the job searching process. The faculty are knowledgeable and friendly and very accessible. They give you lots of opportunities to work with other students and collaborate. I thoroughly enjoy being a student at this university.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent faculty as well as practical and useful information, many opportunities to offer my own input/opinion; inconvenient class location, required commute and long night classes.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The program encompasses a wide range of staff with varying levels of experience and interests. Students are given the opportunity to conduct research in a multitude of areas.
