"The New School for Public Engagement MFA program is incredibly stimulating because of its location, faculty and support staff. I have never seen such a nurturing network of smart, industrial producers. If there is any downside to the school it would be that you could be easily distracted with all of the resources, including fascinating faculty members and internship offerings."

"The graduate program in media management is one complex program. It give you the opportunity lo learn all aspects of the media industry. From production to management and how to manage yourself in the industry. On the opposite side I think they need to have more of an organize program when it comes to the availability of classes and give better guidance when it comes to the path you want to encounter in the program."

"Great network of alumni and fantastic professors. However, support for equipment and spaces are surprisingly lacking -- there are very few spaces that students can use to showcase their work. There are not many courses that prepare you for life after graduation. However, the connections for internships are amazing, so you must be proactive to excel in this competitive environment."

"Like real estate everything boils down to location, location, location. When I made a career change to the arts I needed an environment where I could immerse myself in all things art. My options were limitless at Parsons with a NY campus and Paris campus to choose from. I have access and a network all over the world."

"I wish there were more equipment resources for students to use. As an art student, many projects require equipment from different disciplines -- however, some are not available to students outside of different programs. There should be more options for students to use resources outside their program, given that they have received training. Also, financial aid is very scarce. However, the network is incredible and job opportunities are plenty, which is very important as a graduate student. The programs are very open-ended, so be prepared to explore many disciplines and techniques that you may have not had access to before."

"The most impressive quality of The New School for Drama is the care the faculty and professors have for the students and their success in the vicious world of New York Theatre. They are there to help you succeed. The classes, workshops offered, and optional sessions all are geared to not only make you a better theatre performer/director/playwright, but to make you a better theatre professional."

"The Graduate Program gives you enough time to pursue other things related to your field outside of school (such as jobs or internships), but gives you enough work to make you feel like you're learning something. It's a great balance of independent study under the watchful eyes of faculty that gives you enough wiggle room to grow but are ready to help you out the moment you need it."
