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: 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.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

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!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Fau has a rigorous graduate program for nursing, but that is to be expected of most graduate programs. The location is one of the best characteristics along with the great classmates and supportive teachers. I will be proud to boast a FAU graduate degree when I finish my program. The cons are that there seemed to have been more then one occasion when there was an individual with a weapon on campus, although no injuries occurred.

FAU is a Great school with a quality education. They care for their students and make sure that you have access to the tools you need to succeed. The only con I have Is that the social life is not the best but then again that is not what you are in school for!

Degree: Social Work

The program forces you to engage in real world projects that you can later replicate. There are a lot of evening classes, but there could be more.
