Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I absolutely love the graduate program of Social Work at FAU. The program is encompassing all aspects of social work. We will have the opportunity to work with nursing students in a side by side project, this will help us out in the real world because of the complexity in workers we will deal with. This program really combines all aspects that need to prepare a student to become a Social Worker.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is concise and to the point. The cons is lack of ability to help students obtain internships. School needs to do better getting students job opportunities.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

The school has a much worse reputation than it deserves. The only bad part about this university is the inconvenient area in which it is located, in the middle of an affluent, snobby town, and the difficulty of finding parking on campus, as most of the students are commuters, not residents.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is great as it is flexible. But I am not sure about the job availability once I graduate.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The issue with my online classes is always communication. If I don't understand an assignment from a teacher it takes a lot of time and emails to clear up the problem. Also by the time grading is posted it is often too late to alter following assignments that are already due. This means that the same mistakes are made over and over without an opportunity for correction. The in person classes have been much better. communicating with the teacher is easier and mistakes on assignments are rare. I have heard it will be difficult to find a job in florida after graduation even with my advanced degree. This makes me nervous as I will have a lot of student loans, though I appreciate the honesty.

I feel I was well prepared for what to expect and what is expected of me as a graduate student. This is definitely a good investment that I'm sure will pay off in the long run!
