"I am the second generation in my family to proudly attend NYU Steinhardt as a future teacher. I intend not only to address inclusivity of special education in my future classroom, I seek to improve my proficiency in culturally responsive teaching methodologies and use my experiences in Thailand to promote cultural diversity and awareness within education. NYU's duel certification coursework bridges research on cultural relevance with its successful implementation in classrooms. My professional development via courses such as Foundations of Curriculum for Diverse Learners, will play a critical role in my ability to navigate contemporary social and academic curriculum. This graduate degree allows me the opportunity to learn more about my own sociocultural biases while providing a framework that incorporates multiple paradigms. I specifically hope to focus on developing my masters research in culturally responsive behavioral systems and how they potentially link with cognitive dissonance. The supporting faculty for the program is equally as impressive and I love being at the epicenter of this diverse urban community."

"NYU offer's the first and arguably to most developed graduate program in food studies. Being in NYC also has the unique advantage of being a food culture epicenter, on the forefront of all sorts of trends, while also having several rich and developed communities. An urban environment is only one side however, and NYU struggles with more of the agricultural side of the food communities that other food systems programs can explore more in depth."

"The Food Studies program is a relatively new and unique program at New York University. Because of this the department is constantly working out the kinks of the program changing things around, sometimes causing feeling of disorganization. At the same time, this newness has also allowed for flexibility and allows for each student to create a schedule that works for them personally. The program encourages students to work or find internships but does not provide students with help in building resumes, interviewing, and professors do not really seem open to provide recommendations. This creates a challenge. Class within the Food Studies department are excellent, although sometimes quite large. Overall Food Studies is new program in a cutting edge field. Overtime, as the field becomes more defined the program will become more organized and sustainable."

"The pros of my graduate program is that it is a small program compose of only 8 people. This means that the attention that we all have towards the program is very focused. We have connected and use each other as resources for our individual projects. The program also provides a curriculum that encourages intensive work within our fields. The cons: Because we are a new program at NYU, there is sometimes unclarity on what needs to happen. However, this means that we are developing the program as we go which is very exciting. Not sure if its a total con."

"The NYU graduate program in Drama Therapy has been an excellent experience for me overall. The class sizes are intimate, the professors are wonderful, and my internship placements have been invaluable. I can't believe how much I've learned and grown in only two years. NYU as an institution has some major issues, namely the lack of financial aid in tandem with the high cost of living in NYC; and the lack of diversity on campus."

"The program in Educational Theatre is very flexible and is allowing me to choose exactly what I want to study. The faculty is outstanding, and I feel that when I finish this program I will be equipped to work in my field. The program is expensive, but in my opinion, worth it."

"Pros: Incredible opportunity, best of its kind. Teachers are passionate and loving and generous. Students are communicative and supportive. Location is fun and exciting. Cons: Financial aid for grad students is non-existent except for loans. Tuition is ridiculous (fortunately the degree is worth it). NYC is expensive."

"The biggest pro is the surrounding environment and opportunities available to us as graduate students in New York City. The biggest con is the large amount of student loans required to borrow in order to attend this school."

"A great advantage of my graduate program is that it offers valuable training and formation in my chosen field. As an aspiring researcher in child development, I believe this program gives me excellent training in both statistical and theoretical knowledge . It also provides courses that are often only available at the doctoral level and therefore I feel I can truly be prepared to enter the workforce. A drawback to this program is the limited funding, in terms of scholarships and financial aid. The NYU Master's program in Human Development and Social Intervention is very competitive and I am delighted that I was accepted, but financing my education is my biggest challenge at this time."

"I recently applied and was admitted to the Masters in Music Business Program at NYU Steinhardt, but went to NYU as an undergraduate and have done extensive research on the graduate program. Pros of the program include a fantastic class selection; a wonderful area conducive to submersing oneself in music, one’s area of study, and all aspects of living in a true metropolis; and a fantastic faculty full of scholars and professionals successfully working in the music industry. However, the cons include a high tuition rate and expensive rates of living (although not unexpected in New York City); morbid rates of financial aid assistance; and an antiquated bureaucracy."

"My Masters Program is focused on two things that usually do not come together: on public policy and international education. This is a very narrow angle that most people do not see as a mutual thing. However, those matters are seriously connected as education is an engine for many things. People graduating from colleges and universities form a certain rank in the society, they go to work and thus they create not just economic background, but political as well, forming the world that we currently live in. I am very grateful for the opportunity provided to me. I learn so much about public policy, international relations, educational reforms and economic situation in countries around the world. Before applying for my masters, I have made a serious research and I found very few universities around the States that offer something so unique. I just hope that I will be able to find a work placement here after my education is over."

"The Media, Culture and Communication Masters program at NYU is an excellent, academically rigorous program. It is particularly well-suited for scholars interested in digital technologies and new media. About half of incoming students plan to remain in academia, and the other half intend to enter the workforce in the field of media, marketing, or as cultural critics."
