Student & Graduate Reviews

2.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

Some great faculty, but some terrible administration from the university, not the department
2.5 out of 5.0
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."
5.0 out of 5.0
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.
3.83 out of 5.0
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.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros 1. Faculty members are experienced and provide a lot of support 2. Course content is interesting. Cons 1. Not many Student Affairs-centered courses 2. No cohorts
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Visual Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

FAU is a great university. My main problem is that not all classes are available at different times. If you are full time worker you will be difficult to find classes at convenient schedule. But it is a great school.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

I am pursuing a Masters degree in Accounting with a concentration in Forensics. Florida Atlantic University is one of very few programs nationwide that offer this program, nonetheless via full online venues. I am nearly halfway through and love the experience thus far. As I delve further into my studies, my passion for this field deepens. Thus not only am I creating an invaluable niche for myself regarding my career, but I am pursuing my passion. This degree will catapult me into my career in Forensic Accounting.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Every school has great qualities and things that may need to improve. Florida Atlantic University Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, since 2010 has separated from University of Miami for their own medical school. From since then it's students have received wide attention for their involvement within the south Florida community in clinics and mentoring middle and high school students. Students who attended FAU regional campus under UM did extremely better on board exam for step 1 and subject class test. FAU is growing and expanding their ties in the community and will continue to make fine physicians.
