Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

My program is wonderful because the quality of our instructors is amazing. They are world-renowned researchers and they serve as wonderful examples. Living in sunny south florida is great, too. My critiques would be about the cost of living in the area, the minimal public transportation available, and the minimal career support network outside of my advisor. Otherwise, it is a wonderful program and I really enjoy working with my advisor and the rest of my lab!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

There is a lot of flexibility within the program in regards to when and where you can take your classes. Courses are offered online, teleconferenced, and in person at one of their three campuses based on a rotating schedule. From three years experience, I came across some brilliant professors with excellent in field experience. However, with that being said, not all professors push you as hard as I would expect from graduate work. I wish there was more networking within the program and certainly more of a social life. There is one honor society available for students to join but it is relatively new and still developing. Overall, my time within their graduate program has been a rewarding and enlightening experience.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

The Education department at FAU is extremely effective. Professors are very willing to meet with students even outside of class in order to ensure success. Unfortunately, I did not have the same experience with FAU's Math department (my M.Ed. specialty was math). The math professors are very knowledgeable but do not know how to teach. Additionally, I had a statistics professor who decided to leave the country for the entire duration of our course without informing us or the dean.

Florida Atlantic University has one of the best nursing program in the area. The curriculum is grounded in caring for the patient, for the families, and for self. After all nursing is caring.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I am extremely happy with my choice of graduate program at Florida Atlantic University. The diverse and highly qualified faulty members provide me with an excellent basis for my secondary education. Although Political Science degree offered at the school is slightly broader, the ability to take a number of seminar class in different fields of political science provide a unique type of study.
