"During my senior year at Yale, my academic advisor recommended that I apply to the MA in clinical psych program at Columbia to enhance my application to doctorate programs. Throughout my time at TC, I was impressed with the diversity and intellect of my fellow peers. Furthermore, there is no question that the faculty are highly respected researchers offering exciting research opportunities (I learned quite a bit about suicide ideation in adolescents)."

"I found Teacher's College, Columbia University to be a great educational institute. Class selection was great and the teachers were always willing to answer student's questions during lectures and/or during office hours. Classroom size was just right for my needs."

"The program is unendingly interesting and I feel like I am learning from some extremely knowledgeable and competent professors. However, being that a Master's degree in psychology here is more of a stepping stone to further education and offers no licensing upon graduation, it is incredibly expensive. One sort of has to trust that the classes will improve the chance of acceptance into a great PhD. program. As it is, it's almost the cost of an undergraduate degree at a solid state school."

"The Clinical Psychology Master of Arts program at Teachers College, Columbia University has far exceeded my expectations in preparation for a career in psychology research. The professors in the Global Mental Health and Trauma concentration are well-established in the field, with a wealth of publications, and provide their students with valuable insight about all the ups and downs of global mental health research. I am learning exactly what I came to graduate to school to learn, and far beyond. I have no doubt that I am receiving the exact type of training necessary to get into a reputable Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program."

"The program incorporates multiculturalism in every class, but can sometimes be in a more effective way."

"The masters program in clinical psychology at Teachers College can be an incredible program for students who choose to take advantage of the opportunities available. In my first semester alone, I feel that I have gained skills exponentially and have refined my research interests. Unfortunately, there are some students within my cohort who choose not to take advantage of available opportunities. While this does not weaken or devalue my personal education, it is disappointing. Overall, I love the program and can attest to it's great quality, assuming one is willing to take the lead on their education."

"I completed my MA in Developmental Psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University, last year. The faculty and quality of education were extremely impressive, and I was particularly pleased with my academic advisor with whom I am still in touch. I felt the level of support provided to me was very strong and I highly recommend this program for these reasons. In addition, the Upper West Side of New York is a wonderful and safe area to live and work, and as a TC student you will have great access to many cultural and social events in the city. The only real downfall is that student funding is almost nonexistent, and the financial burden is a lot to carry. Living expenses are also very heavy, and I will say that -- while in every other regard TC was absolutely wonderful -- student debt is now a major issue for me. My graduate school experience, however, could not have been better."
