Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I have never previously been a Graduate student. Comparing my experience to those of my friends, I feel that my school earns high marks overall.

Strong program for Accounting students. Course offerings are sometimes limited. Overall positive experience.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The Environmental Sciences Program at Florida Atlantic University is an interdisciplinary program. It is meant to help students be well rounded and prepared to enter the work-force when they graduate. The problem that I have with this program is that they do not communicate with students in an effective manner and due to budget cuts at the university it is difficult for students to take more than the required number of credits if they so desire.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Very loose program allowing you a variety of courses to choice to persure your Masters Degree. Very friendly faculty willing to help in any means possible.
1.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

This school does not challenge you as much as I thought.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

I'm part of the MPA program at FAU. This is my second semester and it has been absolutely amazing. The classes that I have taken so far, have allowed me to understand the public administration field a lot better. The professors possess lots of experience and knowledge. The only problem I have encountered so far is limited amount of classes offered per semester.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The FAU teaching graduate program is a wonderful degree that prepares future educators for the teaching market. The con is that is is a very expensive program.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

I attend a satellite campus of FAU, and the amenities here are sub-par. Very few courses are offered and the instructor pool is even smaller. However, the research facilities are pristine and extremely available. So, if you're looking for a graduate experience heavy on the research and light on the social and convenient aspects, this school is for you.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2012

What I loved the most about my program was the faculty I was able to work closely with. Well known musicians and performers who have had careers touring the world with classical music. I felt honored to be taught and supported by professors who I aspire to be like. I couldn't have asked for a better opportunity and feel blessed that they have guided me to where I am today.

It is a good graduate program with much potential. The program is still growing and I know with some time, it will be even better.
