Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2017

I have been incredibly pleased with the quality of professors in my program. I think that the network that grad school provides should be further encouraged.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Florida Atlantic University is home to a very talented group of professors. The faculty is overall very helpful and have proven to be a great source for guidance. After graduating with my bachelors degree, I felt very prepared for the field in which I had chosen. The campus life of the university is not as social as I had hoped. There is hardly a sense of community among the students.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2012

Pros: As a PhD student, I was guaranteed a teaching assistantship which paid 80% of my tuition, and the workload per class was very reasonable. Cons: Graduate students were not offered health insurance and the stipend is way too low to cover the cost of living in South Florida. I had to take on outside jobs which was actually prohibited by the department. I had to or take out massive student loans which I did not want to do.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel that for my particular area of study there are multiple aids for me. School officials that have graduated from my program return as instructors and provide insight into the field. It is easy to make connections that will surely propel my chances in the work force.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The Masters program for Education at Florida Atlantic University is great. The professors are very knowledgeable and willing to help students in any way that they can. I enjoy learning everything that I can from them and taking advice that would help me in my own 2nd grade classroom. The only con is the drive to the campus from work.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel everyone is willing to work with a student, if the student is willing to get the help. Transportation can be tough for some if you do not have a car, but FAU works to try and make it easier.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

The professor are very educated and knowledgable. Unfortunately, grad school is very expensive and financial aid does not sufficiently help students with insufficient revenues. Working plus grad school can be quite overwhelming for a lot of students, including myself. Nowadays, individuals need an higher education, as well as experience in order to qualify for a career with benefits.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I really enjoy the Political Science program here at FAU. It allows you to further delve into your area of interest and research and learn more about the field as a whole.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2019

FAU is a great school and has many wonderful people, however it is very hard to pay for living expenses and what not due to the little time available to have a steady job while being a full time student. This scholarship would help with some of the those costs and would really take some pressure off me. It would allow me to relax and focus more on school.
