Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 2015. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time learning and growing in my education at Florida Atlantic University which brought me to my teaching career at an elementary school just months after graduation. In thinking about my career in education, I am furthering my studies with a Master's Degree in Instructional Technology. The College of Education has greatly prepared me for a career in education by guiding me through all my coursework and the wonderful, hands-on professors.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2019

Along with a beautiful campus, FAU just remodeled their breezeway and many of the facilities making it that much more clean and state of the art. The Recreation and fitness center, although often crowded, is really impressive with their Zumba, boxing, dance etc. classes and equipment, pools and basketball/volleyball courts. They even started doing outside training classes for people who like to be outside like me. They don't fall short on facilities and activities to enjoy. FAU's professors, for the most part, will work with you and want you to succeed if you put the time in. As brilliant as some of these professors are, I've had many with have strong accents being form other parts of the world and sometimes can make it challenging to understand all the time. I've met so many amazing people from all over the world here and couldn't have been as successful as I am without the help of my fellow classmates that are now my lifelong friends The career center has also done a great job in informing me of job fairs, resume building and other things to greater my chances of employment to the job I want when I graduate. Parking can be challenging but overall my experience at FAU has been a great one and would definitely recommend attending.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

I was a Biological Sciences student at Florida Atlantic University through my undergraduate studies. I am a current Master's student at FAU studying environmental soil bacteria in the Biological Sciences Program. The program supports its students and at several levels ensures that they can complete their programs well. Students must report and track their progress repeatedly at several points of registration through numerous advisors to ensure timely progress and advancement in the program. Advisors and committee members cared for my project and actively tried to give advice and lend materials. There will be no shortage of solid mentors and advisors at FAU for any students interested in the biology program. The only criticism I have about the Master's biology program is the shortage of courses in the department. Most upper 6000 level courses that graduate students must take pertain to marine biology, ecology, or statistics. There are slim pickings and almost no courses in microbiology related subjects such as bacteria, protists, or viruses. I hoped to take more courses on these topics to improve my knowledge in microbiology, especially bacteria since that is the topic of my thesis. I was forced to take less related courses to fulfill my degree requirements.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

I am enrolled in the Online MBA program at Florida Atlantic University. The online Canvas software is very clear to understand and has reminders of any assignment deadlines and upcoming assignments. In addition, submitting assignments and watching lectures are also very straightforward. I have never had any issues. Group work and communication between colleagues is also easy. The professors are extremely helpful and understanding with technical issues. The content is challenging but very rewarding.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

FAU is a good school they have a nice campus. teachers have all been professional except for some online ones but that's to be expected. the parking enforcement is a little too serious and overpriced make sure you take the extra time to come to class.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

FAU is an excellent school for the purpose of gaining knowledge, but in choosing a school like with many other things in life you may want to keep in mind your reason for attending. If your main goal is employability you may want to look into both the track record of the school and of the degree program before choosing. FAU, and the Masters of Biomedical Science degree in specific, helped build foundations for research practices that Ill be using in my profession for years to come, but in terms of employability I havent really noticed all that big a change.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I enrolled in Florida Atlantic University's Advanced Standing Master of Social Work Program earlier this year after graduating from FAU in December 2016 with a Bachelor of Social Work. I have one more semester before obtaining an MSW degree. Since I am planning to work in the substance abuse field, I am interning at a local treatment center. The clinical experience I am getting is incredible. I facilitate group sessions, counsel clients, write treatment plans, progress notes and much more. While FAU's MSW program is preparing me for clinical social work, I believe the university's BSW program prepared me for generalist practice. From my experience over the last two and a half years, FAU has an excellent program. The faculty genuinely cares, and professors are willing to help students who want to succeed. If you work hard and genuinely want to learn, you will have a great experience. I would highly recommend FAU to anyone who wants to become a social worker. Since FAU is a state school, tuition is reasonable and won't set you back as a private school will, plus I believe you will get a better education at FAU.

Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2017

Attending Florida Atlantic University (FAU) upon transitioning from military service was one of the best decisions I ever made. I attended FAU for my bachelors degree and have now returned to earn my masters. Military members receive great assistance from the staff. Using your military education benefits such as the Post 9/11 bill, is a breeze. If there are any issues, the staff is more than willingly to rectify them immediately. In addition, they're very friendly!

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

Florida Atlantic University is a great institution to pursue a degree at. I am currently pursuing my Masters in Business Administration with a specialization in Health Administration. One main reason FAU is a great option for the MBA program includes its versatility while gaining your education. FAU not only has the option for online classes but also has a specific program called the flexible-MBA. This is a program that allows students to take classes at their own pace with any specialization they want. Students have the option to choose from Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Health Administration, International Business, Management Information Systems, Marketing, or Operations Management. This was a main reason why I chose this program over the other options I had, considering I want to pursue a career in Health Administration. Another reason FAU is a great option for graduate education includes the ability to work as a graduate assistant. Many departments hire students to assist with teaching or advising, in exchange for a tuition waiver and stipend. This is very helpful when financing your education and make a major difference in the amount of loans needed. I am in my first year but have has a great experience with my advisors and mentors thus far. The college of business offers internship courses and its own career advising team, so my hopes for advancement in the future is very high.
