Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently in the MSN program at FDU and have mixed reviews about the program. This is a private university and the courses are very expensive. There is little to no financial aide assistance offered. I have found some professors to be incredibly reachable, and others are completely disconnected from the class. I hope the rest of my years at FDU have a more positive experience.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that my graduate program is a great program because it provides students with the essentials to successfully complete their goals.One of the pros of my graduate program is that there is always great support from all the faculty and advising members. Another pro is that they prepare for your career by giving you the tools to help you understand and learn the lessons taught. Although most of my comments are pros , some of the cons of my graduate program is that the cost for classes is a towards the higher ranges.

The programs has some courses that are outdated in content. However, with the program, you can walk out with relevant information to bring into your field from knowledgeable professors.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program will help me text my career to the next level. The only problem is they need to offer more classes online, other than that it's an excellent program.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

FDU's grad program for Criminal Justice is built for those that have to work. Classes that are lectured only meet once a week. And the assignments are manageable, and the professors are willing to work with the students in regards to scheduling, and due dates.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that all the professors in my program are working professionals in the industry, there is a big diversity of students in the program as well as a lot of support. I can not list any cons yet because this is my first semester.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

The program was very informative and I enjoyed the curriculum very much. However, I feel I was left unprepared to continue with my career after my degree and I would not choose this program had I known this previously. This program does not offer eligibility for any type of license, so career paths involving the material you learned are slim to none.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

The Criminal Justice MA program at Fairleigh Dickinson University is great. The professors are knowledgeable, easily accessible, and extremely helpful. The program allows for interesting internship opportunities and relevant work experience. Each course covers a very specific topic, which offers invaluable information for students who have particular occupational interests. The only con is the high tuition. Fairleigh Dickinson is notoriously expensive, so I have been forced to take out large loans for graduate school.
