Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2018

Overall, graduate student experience here is great. The professors are very good. The faculty and staff really care about the students' well-being. So, far the courses I've taken have been taught by excellent professors. They were available after class for questions and always treated me with respect. The workload sometimes feels excessive, but then again, it's graduate school, its supposed to be that way. There is a nice mix of cultures in the group of grad students. Everyone gets along. What the program lacks is more financial help for the student. The support they provide is enough for the bare essentials. Other than that, my experience has been a very positive one.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is a great way to improve your resume for health professional schools such as medical school or dental programs. Also, the teachers and faculty are very accessable and timely in their responses which I found to be very helpful. The TA internships for this program are very limited, however you can be put on the list for left over TA positions in the Biology and Chemistry department. Searching for scholarships is difficult however worth while. So far I am enjoying this program thoroughly. The parking on campus is horrendous however, and it doesn't look to be improving much. I would look to live on campus if I wasnt getting married and ditch the car all together. This is definitely not a college town, however I love how close you are to the beach, about 5 minutes!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: I want to spend the rest of my life in Florida (most of my family lives there). It has a small class size and collegial environment (facilitated by pass/fail). The facilities are incredible, especially the simulation center. Cons: Cost

I have just begun the graduate program, as of not everything is a positive, although the con may be the workload I have a lot to finish within a year.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

There are many people who end up failing the courses because of the amount of time expected for you to put into the program. I am happy to say that I really enjoy being a part of the FAU Health Administration program.

I think that the graduate program at Florida Atlantic University is built to be very interactive and challenging, however the students often are not pushed to maximize their potential.
