Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2019

The New School is a diverse and rigorous and progressive university established in 1919 designed for freethinkers. It's flexibility allows It is the #1 school for small classes . It ranks #1 for art and design and has highest percentage of international students. I am enrolled in the Media Studies program, where I plan on expanding media literacy in my state and in the nation. Because the university allows for me to achieve my goals, I can take classes outside of my school and still get credit toward my degree. The university is heavily focused on theory and practice.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2005

The New School is a wonderful Music program. A few months after I graduated I went on Tour with Beyonce so it definitely prepared me for my future. However, the advisors never told me that my degree wouldnt help me as far as teaching. Also the advisor did not advise me to take english or math classes just in case i would want to continue on and get a masters degree which I now have to take on top of my graduate courses to complete my certificate .

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2020

I am writing about The New School for Social Research. I have continuously been impressed with the program here that I am going to continue on from my MA and get my PhD in Clinical Psychology here at the NSSR. What is most appealing about this program is the mentorship that I receive from both faculty and peers alike. I always feel that I am able to go to someone when I need advice or need to run a research idea by someone. The classes and professors here are unlike any other University I have attended. There is a real emphasis on learning to learn and not learning to test and that is something I did not have at other institutions.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

If you do not have the opportunity to pursue a master's in person and want to study communications and similar fields, The New School's Media Studies MA program is a great option. I took all of my courses online, and almost all of the professors were extremely knowledgeable and easy to contact. The courses were still challenging and prepared me for the field.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2019

Great diversity with student ratio to teacher. Fabulous program in the Arts political aspect. Great location in New York. I feel very fortunate to be doing my master degree. For private school it's very affordable you just have to look and search for the money I'll pay for it.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

This is a unique program that fuses the importance of data science and aesthetics in information science. The M.S. in Data Visualization at Parsons School of Design in New York City benefits from a strong design-conscious and socially-minded core renowned for the caliber of work exhibited by professionals in applied arts. It is the only one of its kind that focuses attention on Data Visualization, where other Data Science programs focus on the full breadth of information architecture with aesthetics in information science as a "design component" of the curriculum.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2018

If you are looking for an independent and a heterogeneous program in Economics The New School is the place to go. Their faculty are well known Economist who will engage you in Classical, Neoclassical, and Marxian Economics. You get to learn and explore on all angles of Economic Theory, which gives you a broad spectrum of the world in politics, finance, philosophy, economics, economic history, etc. One of my favorite things about The New School is that the student body is extensively diverse, most students are international students. This gives the school a broad spectrum of ideas, influences, dialogs, it is very enriching.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2011

The Master's program at Milano, The New School has professors that actually work in the non-profit world. They had out practical lessons as well as the theory. You will learn a lot but the price tag is very steep.
2.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2006

Try to get as many scholarships as possible. Do one's research. Attempt to do a dual degree.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The New School is a great university located in New York City. It provided me with many opportunities to work in the field and practice what I learned in the classroom in the outside world. I enjoyed the TESOL classes and the professors were wonderful.
