Student & Graduate Reviews

4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my graduate program are that it will help me get earn teaching credentials and get a great job as a special education teacher. I am learning a lot and I enjoy working on the assignments because they stimulate my thinking in different ways than my Bachelors degree, which is in music, did. Choosing to get a Masters degree in Exceptional Education has been very worthwhile, and I am very grateful that I chose this program at Florida Atlantic University. The only con of my graduate program is that I do not think the work challenges me intellectually. I attended a private college for my Bachelors degree and I was challenged intellectually and started to think on a higher level about my schoolwork. At Florida Atlantic University, I have not gotten that same level of stimulation.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program is preparing me and providing me with requirements I need for my CPA license. I also feel that the program is great at incorporating real-world aspects that I can take with me. On the down side, the cost of living is very high, and I feel that some professors could show a little more respect for students.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Most of the faculty in the program are excellent, and the courses are thorough and informative. I learn a lot in this program. However, the cost of living here is high, transportation is often hectic, and the program itself is quite expensive with limited financial aid opportunities.

Graduation Year: 2018

FAU has a very competitive cost for the MBA program. They have a very attentive staff dedicated to the MBA students. We have access to our own facilities. The enrollment process is very easy.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

While the graduate program expanded my abilities to analyze literature and enhanced my writing skills, the faculty could have been more supportive. There was clear favoritism and the GTA positions' duties were not equally distributed.
3.17 out of 5.0

Pros: It's a high-ranked program that is leading educators in the field of counselor education. The faculty is passionate about what they do and are also leaders in their profession. Con: Far commute.

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2019

Our program is one of the best in the US. I am definitely proud to be a student at FAU. The faculty are very knowledgeable and helpful and this place is definitely a good choice for graduate students. The area is extremely gorgeous and refreshing and there are a lot to do in the area. The only disadvantage is high rents, which makes sense considering the great location and weather, and would not be a big issue when sharing an apartment.
