Fordham University Graduate Reviews

When I went back to graduate school for Social Work, several people recommended Fordham to me - I am very grateful they did. The Graduate School of Social Service has a focus on Social Justice that I have not seen from any other program. The faculty is extremely positive and helpful and my learning experience at Fordham-Lincoln Center has been incredibly rewarding. I have learned more than I could have previously imagined in the past two years about public policy, the socio-economic factors that shape our society, injustices that our clients may (and often do) suffer from, and to simply have compassion and empathy for our clients as we work with them to improve their lives. I had thought I was aware and well-informed about the factors that shape our society but my professors at Fordham have shown how (and where) to look deeper, to see more, and to advocate for positive change in our society for those who cannot speak for themselves.

I am excited to be a Fordham Ram! The experience so far has been seamless and enthusiastic. Everyone I have encountered seems to enjoy working with Fordham and offers support in every aspect that they can. I look forward to the next year.
Fordham University is an amazing school with fantastic resources and opportunities, and top-notch faculty. The education you will receive here is excellent, but you will pay a high price for it. The locations of the campuses are great, but even newer facilities could use updating or renovation. It would also be great to see more resources for the large commuting student population. Work-study and financial aid opportunities are extremely limited and could also be greatly improved.
