CUNY Brooklyn College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
The Kinesiology department thoroughly prepares physical education students for a career in education. The professors are very helpful with preparing students with lesson plans, and practical experience. They provide a plethora of study guides and school procedures for tests and for new teachers.
Brooklyn College has high class educators that will surely take you to the next level in your educational path. The Political Science degree program enriches you with a robust amount of knowledge on how our government works and how to effect change in society. I believe job prospects are best once having completed a masters degree in the subject.
Overall great school, especially for the field of education but dealing with administration can be a major pain. Make sure you keep documentation of every conversation and all papers you hand in because odds are they will lose them. But as far as education is concerned, I left feeling prepared for my career.
This school is great, especially the early childhood education department. The classes are intense but you learn a lot! The only drawback is dealing with the faculty. They can be difficult to contact and when you do they can prove to be very unhelpful. Many things that I found out on my own as far as becoming certified, I thought I should have been told by my professors. However, I did learn a lot and feel prepared to start my career.
Attending a CUNY school, gives you a quality education at an affordable price! Brooklyn College, in particular, offered a diverse environment which included staff, faculty, and student body. All three have their moments but generally speaking there are many that will provide assistance if needed. A word of advice: be proactive regarding your studies and academic opportunities on campus. There are lots of them but, as with anything, you do have to seek them out.
Big college with many majors. classes are offered during various time and weekends which is very convenient.
College was one of the most eye-opening and life defining moments I've ever experienced. It's not something I would change for the world. You'll learn, you'll suffer but you'll grow. It's a growing experience worth taking.
The Health and Nutrition Department at Brooklyn College offered a variety of interesting and challenging classes that ranged from Drugs and Society to Women's Health. The department requires that each student take an internship in order to get an understanding of how to apply your studies outside of the classroom, a class that I am grateful for, because it provided the option to learn in a hands-on setting. Every class I took was different, and provided me with different tools and resources to succeed. Not only did I manage to overcome my fear of presenting my projects to my peers, but I learned how to effectively compose research papers and bibliographies. Although not every class that is in the Health and Nutrition handbook is offered, there are still plenty of options that leave room for growth and learning. Whether you're studying to be a Nutritionist or a Community Health Educator, you will graduate with the knowledge and experience needed to carry out your dreams in the workforce.
Brooklyn College is an affordable school that packs a great education.
Brooklyn College is a commuter school so students don't have the typical dorm/party experience but it's a great school with interesting programs and great faculty.
