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.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

This is a very new program, but nonetheless excellent. What they lack in connections and support from an alumni base they make up for with giving us good practical experience and good instruction. That being said I'm not a fan of the Boca Raton area and to high a proportion of our patients are over 80.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The workload is not overwhelming, but the program is very laid back. Overall I feel that the program is really what you make out of it. You can get involved and learn a lot, but you can slide by without having to. I am not sure the second option is worth your time. Boca is a pretty area that is a little expensive

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that the Higher Education Leadership graduate program at FAU will enhance my career. I have enjoyed the networking and camaraderie with my classmates. The ability to attend school both in person and online has enabled me to work towards a Master's degree while working full time and raising a family.
