I am thrilled with the quality of classes, professors, and student body at the New School. I am getting a well-rounded education, and feel challenged every day. Being in New York City keeps me motivated to learn from my peers and stay involved in the international community. The only con of living in NYC is the high cost of living - rent in Manhattan is the highest in the country, and it is rare to find an entry level job that can sustain a comfortable lifestyle.

The Graduate Urban Policy Analysis program at the New School is a fascinating opportunity to investigate the socioeconomic interactions of urban systems and people. With a much more in-depth approach to urban issues, the degree program has, so far, been more informative and engaging than typical Public Admin programs. The New School Urban program focuses on the detailed analytical macro/micro relationships of resource and capital flows in urban settings instead of just a higher-level bureaucratic concepts that sometimes plague MPA programs. This program is ideal for candidates interested in doing Analysis work and long-term research and investigations into the dynamic mechanisms of urban systems.

The school has dedicated and knowledgeable professors who are willing to really sit down and have a conversation with you and help connect you to the professional world. I work in my field of study and have already gotten so much from this program after only a semester and a half.

I love this program. I am very satisfied with my education. However, the tuition at The New School is among the highest in the country. Therefore, I am left with lots of loan debt coming out.

The Urban Policy Program is very hands-on. It is a wonderful experience that prepares you for the workplace. The courses are challenging and the networking opportunities are awesome! Love this Grad school Program and would highly recommend it if you are interested in Urban Policy.

The program I'm enrolled in -- the Graduate Program in International Affairs -- is an excellent program with outstanding lecturers who are leaders in their field.
