Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program offers an opportunity to learn more about medicine and have the potential experience of medical school in order to see if that is the route you should be taking. However, there are not enough financial aid opportunities, which is why I am seeking out as many scholarships as possible.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2013

My experience with Florida Atlantic University's Master of Accounting Executive Program in Forensic Accounting has been very valuable to my career development. The way the program is structured offers career professionals the option to attend courses on campus and/or online. Due my work schedule, I have benefitted greatly by attending classes through the online option. Attending classes online allows me to view recorded lectures on my own time, which I feel is one of the best pros to the program. Another pro of the program is learning and collaborating with a very diverse and intelligent group of individuals. My peers have held very successful positions from in the field of accounting in a private setting. to working for the federal government. This diverse group of people has really made the program rich in nature. Even though I find the program wonderful in many aspects, the price tag is the one thing I would say is its only con. Each course is $3500.00 and with there being 10 courses for the program it comes to $35,000.00 in total to complete the program. I am very thankful to receive financial aid student loans to cover the expense for the program, however I would be exceptionally grateful to receive aid in the fashion of grants or scholarship to cover the student loan debt I have incurred while obtaining my Master of Accounting in Forensic Accounting degree.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Florida Atlantic's MPA program is challenging and informative. The professors and students come from diverse backgrounds and have a wealth of knowledge to share about the field and practice of public administration. Highly recommended.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The Florida Atlantic University program for Social Work was amazing. I was able to learn not only my specialized field but other career options that I could pursue. The teachers are always helpful and the administrators for the program are available whenever you may need them. I loved my experience as an undergrad and I can not wait to begin this summer as a graduate student! I did not experience any cons while enrolled in my BSW at FAU.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

Some great faculty, but some terrible administration from the university, not the department

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

I was admitted to this school by default, due to an error they made. Since then its been a struggle just to do anything, even something as simple as sign up for orientation. I'm quickly learning that FAU stands for "Find Another University."

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

FAU has an exceptional staff that is knowledgeable and always available for assistance. The program is well structured and flexible so that one can go work while earning a degree. The only con would be that I think it the social work graduate program could offer more online classes.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

Teachers care about the material and are willing to help students despite the student's step back. Only real con is that some of the courses were challenging enough for me.
