Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2012

I learned so much about myself and about the world around me. I grew as a person and learned to be more appreciative and thoughtful. I also learned a ton that I would not know otherwise.

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: Economics
Graduation Year: 2018

The Faculty (as well as the more advanced students) are incredibly accessible, which makes for stimulating discussions and an inspiring learning environment. I've never before experienced such a tight knit academic community as I have at the Economics department of The New School. What's more, the courses cover a diverse set of schools of thought. This allows for a lot of flexibility and I feel that it widens the horizons of both students and professors. I would recommend this department for anyone interested in non-mainstream economics training. This despite the school's lack of adequate financial aid.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

The main pros are the program's encouragement of critical thinking and availability of professors for enlightening discussions. The main con is the high cost of the program and the limited availability of financial aid.

The New School is an excellent program structured to facilitate a rigorous application of mathematics and heterodox economics.

The Graduate Economics program at the New School for Social Research is excellent on many levels. It builds on a distinguished academic tradition of American and European scholars going back to the early 20th century. It is one of the most open-minded economics departments with regards to schools of thought, and students learn about a variety of thinkers. There is inter-disciplinary contact between departments, and students are encouraged to tackle real-world problems rather than simply build neat models. The only issue with this school is the size of the faculty - currently small but hopefully increasing soon. Great place to study economics overall!
