"Pros: Location;you can reach a variety of research institutions in New York. The faculties are very accessible and helpful. Cons: Poor Facility; the program allows to use literary a small room. There is no enough nighttime class for a commuter school."

"I really like the museum studies/ art history program at CCNY. The professors are knowledgeable and I like that they are constantly challenging me to open my mind and broaden my horizons. There are some downsides to attending a school in the CUNY system and that is mainly on the administrative end. In regards to financial aid, the CUNY system is truly a joke. I have attended CUNY schools for my entire academic career (associates, bachelors, masters) and I have never been treated the way the they have treated me over the years. Future students should be aware that they it will take weeks to get the outcome that you desire. Other than that, I have been enjoying the education I am receiving."

"The graduate program of history at City College of New York contained a intellectually and culturally diverse group of students with an objective to enrich our community with their insights and humanity. Likewise, the commitment and generous support of faculty mentors who encourage graduate students to push themselves to reach their academic potential was a benefit to any learning experience. My time as a grad student at CCNY has allowed me to reflect on my privilege as a U.S. college student and researcher, and it brought me face to face with the legacies of historical research that was designed to facilitate colonization and the spread of “modernity.” This experience solidified my desire to go on to doctoral school and become a professional scholar so that I can continue to engage deeply in research. Our program (like so many other graduate programs) was emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausting. Living 2 hours away from school in NYC made commuting a living hell. On top of this, many of the history students enrolled in the Masters degree program at CCNY are working class or on their way to finishing their teaching degrees. As a result not only were all the Grad course after 6 pm, but classes were always divided into those that came to improve their knowledge and those that came to pass. Often times, only 30% of the classroom was truly engaged with the readings and the research."

"The pros is that the program professors are very willing to help you.  There is not much diversity in the History classes because of the lack of professors"
