The school provided thought provoking classes. The program I completed was fully online which was very helpful for me to complete my masters while working full time.

I loved attending the University of South Florida. I found the campus to be user friendly. There were lots of food options for when I was going to be there awhile. The faculty helped me with my classes and degree options when I had questions.

If you're looking for an extremely large school in an urban environment, this may be a good fit for you.

The teachers and faculty are always willing to help you outside of the classroom as well as in the classroom.

The program I am in is great since I work a full time job and am still able to pursue my masters degree. I have also been very happy with the professors and the course content. However, I would have liked more information initially on how the online classes actually work - there was little instruction.

Pro: The particular program that I'm apart of at USF is comfortably small in number. I have classes with many of the same few students, which allows us the opportunity to get to know each other in a way that will create reliable professional relationships while in the field. Con: The school itself can use some updates, especially in the main library. There are some great technological tools available student use, but the facility itself is not laid out in the most efficient way.

A great set of faculty to learn from in an absolute great area of the country with a wonderful campus. The up and coming research is amazing and constant. The cons would be the lack of available funding for post-grad students as well as the lack of mainstream program identity yet (although they are working on it).

Pros-Most classes can be taken online. Diverse group of students. Can choose the classes to fit what you want. Cons-Some teachers are extremely hard to get a hold of. Not all classes are offered every term.

Does not include enough hands-on practical use of software programs and concentrates on theory too much. There are not enough professors to take care of all the Ph.D. students. so some have changed majors or gone for an interdisciplinary degrees. Currently not a great program, but with more professors coming in I'm sure it will improve.
