Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

FAU is an interesting place. It has a lot of resources but it's not very organized. The professors are generally very nice and supportive. It's a great place if you know what you want and you're willing to put in the work to get make it happen.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Our graduate program is small and offers one-on-one time with professors. Florida is a great area for marine biology and this university is developing a strong marine biology program. I would like to see more marine ecology professors and more field based marine biology classes offered at the graduate level.

Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are the quality of professors and coursework are top-notch. The ability to interact with a broad range of mentors makes the program a complete experience of hands-on and classroom exposure. The cons would be not offering some courses every semester so having to postpone a certain class slows you down to graduation.

Degree: Health Sciences

Small class sizes are the key to success and empowerment. Early exposure to clinical skills sets CESCOM apart from other medical programs nationally.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

The College of Medicine at FAU is a demanding and challenging program. However, it is a new program and because of that has limited financial resources for students and still has a few "hills" to get over before it is considered to be at the same level of other medical schools.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is more affordable than others in the area and offers equal or greater flexibility in the the completion time and individual commitment required for completion. However, course offerings are sometimes limited.
