As a person with over 10 years of work experience in the field I'm pursuing a master degree for, the UCF master degree program in research administration is great! A major pro is that the program truly gives you a "from the ground up" approach to teaching research administration. The basics of research administration are covered and that knowledge is built upon. Another pro is the cohort-based approach to the program. A con to the program is the lack of faculty/staff knowledge of grants/scholarships that can help students cover tuition costs. Especially for students who are not interested in taking out loans.

This program is geared towards professionals already working in the field. It is a completely online program which allows for flexibility in being able to complete the program. Cons of the program is that it does not allow for or offer financial aid.

My review is based on my undergrad experience at the same university due to the fact that I do not start my graduate program for another couple of weeks.

The graduate program at UCF is a highly competitive field. With the state of the art clinic available for graduate students to get hands on experience, UCF is working its way up to be a top competitive school in Florida for speech pathology. The program is a rigorous two years so it will be a large and hard work load to get through.

Overall this is a great institution for academic development. I'm pursuing a master in criminal justice after a ten year hiatus and love the program. The educators, though some are eccentric, have a great way of conveying important information.

I'm still new to UCF, although I began my undergraduate career here before transferring out of state. The professors in my field are heavy on research and that makes me confident I'm getting the latest information available. So far I feel great about my decision to attend for my graduate career.

There is a lack of financial support for graduate students. This is very stressful to worry about financial well-being while trying to take on full-time grad studies.
