"Fordham University is a dream come true. I am currently attending the Graduate School of Social Service and loving every minute of it. I love the school, the mission, the faculty and my classmates. I attend school part-time while holding down a full-time job. Fordham gives a lot of flexibility on how and when to take courses which has allowed me to realistically pursue my degree. It's been a challenging yet rewarding experience and I'm extremely happy to call Fordham my school."

"I am currently an LLM student in Fordham School of Law. I feel very engaged in my classes. Professors are very helpful and responsive. The faculty staff makes you feel like a family. The intensive orientation helps students to transit smoothly, as many student who proceed LLM have first law degree from out of the United States. The academic life in Fordham is full of events. A lot of practitioners visit with lectures and seminars, discussions of trending topics and advices for professional development. I am very satisfied with the program and highly recommend it!"

"Fordham University is a great institution for students of all ethic backgrounds and beliefs. The Graduate School of Social Services Program has given me a new outlook on the aspects of Social Work. The education the professors provide and learning experiences I have encountered have encouraged me to continue on in my field of study so I can make a difference in todays communities, as well as in our country. I am proud and honored to be able to attend such an elite University."

"I got a great deal out of the curriculum for the Master's Degree in Public Media at Fordham University. It's an inaugural program that started last year, but I believe the courses on offer are structured well and the professor's are top notch. Not only have they taught for quite some time, but they've all worked in the field in different capacities. It's a one-year, full-time program so it's possible to have your Master's in one year, which I believe appeals to many students."

"So far Fordham Westchester has been a positive experience. I find the curriculum thought provoking and the professors helpful, encouraging and approachable. It is pricey though and for a degree in social work you would wish they would price according to earning potential. Overall I am grateful I made the decision to go back to school and that I chose Fordham."

"For years I have wanted to go back to school for my masters in social work but financial fear kept me from taking the leap. Since enrolling in Fordham GSS Westchester Campus I now feel I am self actualizing and moving in a direction towards my full potential, and it's a wonderful feeling. I have found the curriculum stimulating and thought provoking and through this increase in knowledge and self awareness I find my authentic voice is emerging. My professors have been extremely supportive, approachable and encouraging. Many of the students are serious about learning, focused, and collaborative, however, some students talk and text during class and do not appear as focused on their education. I have chosen to gravitate to the more focused, serious students and find team work encouraged here at Fordham. Unfortunately Fordham is pricey and offers only small scholarships to counterbalance the high tuition rate, which is daunting for one who has chosen a career in social work. With all the being said I know I made the right decision by taking the risk to go back to school and I know I made the right choice with Fordham."

"The Public Media program at Fordham University is a one-year, full-time Master's Degree program. There are several cross-platform journalism, theory, and strategic communication courses on offer. The top-notch professors always make themselves available to students. I'm glad I chose this program, which is in its inaugural year."

"Fordham's MSW social work program is excellent. I feel it combines clinical social work with a perspective of social justice. It's the right mix of macro/community-based social work and micro/psychotherapy-based social work. The professors are excellent, the classes are small, and the school is located in its modern Lincoln Center campus. It's easily accessible via many subways, and right be beautiful Central Park."

"I enjoyed my time at Fordham University in their Graduate School of Business. As a program I feel that the classes offer a challenge and that students can achieve a great education. I do feel that the business school, at the time, was more catered to part-time students and that the school could do more to bolster its full-time program."

"While it's a new program that just launched, the one-year, full-time Public Media program at Fordham University is very beneficial to my educational goals and needs. We have learned various aspects of the media, including theory and hands-on approaches, which are marketable to any Communications field. I'm really glad I enrolled in this program at Fordham University, a Jesuit institution in New York."

"My law school was very much like a high school in terms of social relations amongst the students. The alumni network, however, is very strong and made the experience worth it."

"Fordham University has a great graduate-level master's program. I graduated from the Public Communications program. The rigor and preparation that I received served me well in my career. I graduated in 1996, at the time I felt the information and curriculum was cutting-edge. With all of the changes in technology, social and the cultural drivers of the current news cycle, I can only imagine how exiting the program is today. Thank you Fordham!"

"Must be a specific type of person to enjoy your time here. If you don't like living in a big city, it's not for you. If you are not familiar with the area, DO NOT CONFUSE THE BRONX WITH MANHATTAN. The "idea" of New York is Manhattan, not the BX. Rose Hill is a more typical "college experience" with college bars filled with frat types. Lincoln Center is similar to NYU- no real campus/filled with artsy folks. (I lived at both) The professors are quality, and the intelligence of the student body is certainly above average, however there is certainly a faction of students that have a little too much to prove. If you are interested in business/marketing, politics, or theology and know you want to stay in New York, Fordham is a great choice. Otherwise I would not recommend it."

"Fordham University's doctoral program in Education Leadership and Policy has provided students with the opportunity for students to discuss critical issues in urban education. The doctoral program gives students the ability to focus on theory and practice while maintaining high standards of learning. My decision to attend Fordham was one of the best decisions of my life."

"The degree program did not satisfy my educational needs. A lot of professors were excellent, I think the issue was the curriculum. There were not enough elective classes so I wasn't able to study the areas I was interested in. Quite a few of the required classes felt either unnecessary or as if they could have been taught in a shorter length of time than a complete semester. Upon graduating I immediately entered a certificate program which offered the skills I felt I was missing to be a competent counselor . The program also did not provide efficient support for career seeking. It could be due to issues with the MHC degree itself, regardless finding an internship and job was an extremely difficult process."
