Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

FAMU is a place where you're valued and an institution where you can grow. The main competitive advantage FAMU has the campus truly makes you feel apart of a family. The university staff come from a wide background but yet are still able to relate to you on an individual level. You can form great relationships with your professor to help you gain an understanding of the subject but if you're a top performer they can also recommend you to opportunities you would have otherwise never known about. The School of Business equips you to handle any environment and forces you to get out of your comfort zone with their professional leadership program. Having matriculating through this program in my undergraduate degree it's easy to see the comparison between FAMU alumni and non-FAMU alumni in a boardroom setting. We've been trained to professionally and tactfully articulate in business settings. The school is great if you believe in the program. The only critic I have is if you major in business, focus on a more quantitative aspect of your field. Learn database programming and scripting languages like SQL and Python. Learn how to analyze data. And at the very least Know Excel. All in all, FAMU is a great school just stay focused on life beyond school and set your aim to the job you want. FAMU will prepare you!

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

I currently attend Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University's College of Pharmacy and I absolutely love it. This university cares about student education and their success in their field of study. The instructors take their time to explain the material that they are presenting to each student. I always leave the campus knowing more information about pharmacy than the day before. I highly recommend this university to other students.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

Florida A&M University (FAMU) is an excellent university located in Florida's capital city, Tallahassee. The University is rich in history as it is one of the historical black colleges and universities in the state of Florida. There are plenty of activities that cater to the graduate student population, as Florida State University is also located directly across the street from FAMU. So, there are plenty of opportunities to partake in research as well as forums to grow within your profession. My major in graduate school was Health Administration. FAMU's Health Administration program is about 16 years old as of 2017 so it is a younger degree program in health administration than other institutions. The program is rigorous as far as content but what balances the course work are your cohorts. The program's classes are in the evening hours Monday-Thursday. Studying with your cohorts within a team fashion becomes the norm; it actually mimics some environments in the healthcare field. The career opportunities are endless in Health Administration. Just in my cohort group, we have insurance personnel, finance heads in the insurance and hospital fields, I am a Regional Operations Manager with a large physician performance management group and we even have a vice president at a hospital. Networking opportunities are endless because we do have a close knit group of small cohort classes. There were about 55 credit hours in the program and it was full-time. I worked and attend school. In the last semester, you have the course of completing health management fieldwork or a capstone. Also, during our time as graduate students, we even had the opportunity to participate in case competitions to display what we have learned in course work and applied them to real live cases. I must say looking for opportunities are not led by facility and staff and that being proactive is essential to your success post graduation. Overall my experience was excellent. The University and the program are great and I am satisfied that I matriculated through both.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

Great school and great program. Make sure you stay on top of your e-mail and I-rattler. Financial aid is difficult to get a hold of so be prepared to put your phone on speaker while you take care of any other business you have. Once you do get a hold of them thy are super helpful and everyone is really nice. Tuition is affordable for Florida residents so that helps a lot.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros of my programs consist of thorough knowledge of material to pass national board exams, networking with alumni for possible career paths, resources from pharmacy related organizations. Cons consist of scarce availability of lab materials, financial aid services, and technical support for distant learning campus.
