Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2019

Program itself is good but because English is my Second language, so it is a little hard sometime. But the overall experience is great

Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I am hoping to have excellent options for career opportunities upon graduation. Program is expensive, but I feel it will be worth it in the end (value). Fellow grad students are positive, committed and hard-working.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of this graduate program are incredible flexibility to pursue as much or as little as you can handle. The flexible MBA has allowed me to maintain a full-time job. The cons are low school credibility nationally and limited coursework when it comes to specific concentrations.

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.
