Yeshiva University Graduate Reviews

5 reviews
Yeshiva does it best to prepare you as a clinician and researcher, as you complete practicums in school and off site simultaneously. It is not difficult to obtain your desired hours for internship placement and they are sure to prep you for the internship application and interview process. However, the program lacks cultural sensitivity and empathy towards its students. There are no people of color on faculty and clinical supervisors are ill-equipped to manage diversity issues experienced by therapists in training. Students are also overworked and are ironically penalized for experiencing life stressors (e.g. postpartum depression and parents have cancer). They seem to care more about their reputation than their students at times. Nonetheless, like I said they provide adequate training, as long as your goals matches with theirs.

AMAZING LOCATION, great school with great teachers and so diverse. Has every kind of club and opportunity and they really do try to help you for life after you graduate.
amazing, I can tell that The University is not what it once was. Unfortunately, the bureaucracy is slowly eating the University's finances away, causing good professors to leave and bringing in adjuncts who couldn't care less about the students. Then again, there are some great professors at YU, but at this rate I'm not sure how much longer they'd be able to stay. What the university needs is a complete reconstruction of their financial prioritization as well as sensible fiscal accountability. Only then will YU be able to keep professors for extended contracts and pay them enough to genuinely care about their students. I personally am a Political Science Major and Economics Minor, and I can attest to this dilemma. This past year (2012) the Political Science department lost all but one professor, making the department I once knew alien to me. There have also been cuts to the Economics department, as well as most all departments in the social and hard sciences.
