Student & Graduate Reviews

2.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

I think that the graduate program at Florida Atlantic University provides a quality education at a reasonable price. Multiple campuses across South Florida provides convenience to a multitude of students. However, this high distribution of students between campuses takes away from the sense of community. Overall, Professors are knowledgeable and easily accessible. Job opportunities are frequently announced to students and the career center puts on many events to help students become successful after graduation.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2015

There are certainly more pros than cons of the Nonprofit Management Graduate program at FAU. First, the professors are excellent and truly dedicated. They not only teach, but they go out of their way to ensure that we are succeeding and getting the most out of the courses. The professors don't just teach the subject matter, but they actually have years of experience in the nonprofit sector. Additionally, they provide opportunities to get a firsthand feel for grantwriting, fundraising, and other essential components of the nonprofit sector. A con of the program is that there are not enough professors to offer more courses each semester.

The Pros of this program is the stability of teachers throughout the program; you work with the same teachers from beginning to end. The cons of this program are the time of the classes and the lack of financial aid support offered through the school.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2011

Overall the executive MBA program was a very challenging and exciting degree program. I was challenged everyday in the classes. To this day I take back with me what I learned. The teacher and staff were very supportive and wanted me to succeed. They were there for me and offered every support so I wouldn't fall behind. The only critique I would give at this time is the communications courses. I believe they were a waste of time and does not prepare MBA students on how to communicate with Executives International.

Degree: Counseling

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.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2013

Strong program for Accounting students. Course offerings are sometimes limited. Overall positive experience.
2.5 out of 5.0
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.

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.
