"I entered the program in the middle of the pandemic, where my first year (fall to spring) were all online. The school was still adjusting to online learning and had live zoom classes, which were OK. The quality of professor were mediocre, and quizzes were an absolute joke. Once it came time to prepare for the internship phase, my class reached out to the designated person who provides connections/contacts for interviewing at facilities. This specific person gave all students the same contacts, which were extremely outdated. Most students did not get replies or were told Hofstra was not in contact with them within the past 5 years. The head of the department does not prioritize student's concerns about course content or the way the program is being run. The department did not communicate to the students about the NCE exam, which is not required for NYS but is preferred for an extra credential. Adjunct professors are usually not engaging/passionate. Overall, I do not feel that I have received my money's worth in this program."

"Hofstra has a very strong student life and excellent multicultural and LGBT programs. Hofstra rewards creative people who take initiative and show leadership potential. I have the best memories of my life at Hofstra."

"Hofstra University is a University full of opportunities. The mental health counseling program for masters has amazing professors who are more than willing to help their students succeed. The professors are very invested in their students and are also very engaged with the organizations the students are involved in as well."

"The Hofstra Masters in Creative Arts Therapy program is unlike any other in its focus to produce professional and knowledgeable clinicians. The faculty is incredibly helpful and available and the community at large is an excellent support."

"Great school with many amenities, and networking opportunities. Education is superb. However, certain areas can be spotty in living quarters/conditions/environment."

"The best thing about this program is that you do not have to search internship by yourself. However, I would have prefer more selection in every semester."
