Degree: Biology

There is less healthy competition than should be in a graduate program. However, the faculty are very supportive.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

FAU is located along the east coast of Florida and near the Florida Everglades. This is ideal for those working in the field of ecology. However, the east coast of Florida has a high expense of living and public transportation is dismal. Overall, FAU provides support for their graduate students, and the program is gaining ground.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019

I am fortunate to get this excellent opportunity to do my PhD at FAU. I am getting excellent lab and supervision here. The financial support is not great for the PhD students. The cost of leaving is very high at Boca Raton and we are not getting fellowship according to the standard of living. Also we need to take some extra course works which might not be useful for the thesis.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am having a fabulous time earning my degree from Florida Atlantic University. Harbor Branch campus is a great location for a marine science field. The campus is located on the water, very small group of students, and lots of hands on experience.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

The MA program is quite well rounded and offers excellent opportunities for students to explore areas beyond their chosen level of concentrations. The city of Boca Raton is quite sleepy and costly, so you may want to live somewhere less expensive which also has a much larger younger population.

FAU is a great local choice for those looking to get into Educational Leadership.

There is a great, collaborative research community at FAU, and the faculty are all very helpful. You have access to a lot of resources here.
