Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I am excited to begin another phase in my educational journey at Florida Atlantic University. Although I have not yet begun classes (summer 2017), my encounters and conversations with students and faculty have been beyond pleasant. Pursuing my M.Ed in Educational Psychology, I am anticipating the wealth of knowledge that I will gain and apply to researching various school models across the country. My goal is to work for the Department of Education and help in the decision making process that directly affect classrooms and students.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I started my graduate program at FAU since summer 2013. I passed great courses that helped me a lot to understand the required materials. I studied under supervision of expert professors who gave me deep and strong vision toward my research goals. I highly recommend FAU to the future students.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I really love the experience I had with FAU. I highly recommend this major to students who enjoy being in nature and teach future citizens about environmental appreciation. The program is not as difficult as you may think, and it is a very pleasant learning journey.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida Atlantic University is a wonderful school. The Executive Masters Degree in Business Administration is a tough program. However, with commitment and hard work the results can be second to none. I feel by the time I complete this program, I will be prepared for a great future career.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014

The time that I had at Florida Atlantic University was great. I got to learn from great faculty who are renowned in the field of political science. The area the school is in is amazing and very beautiful. My fellow peers were also motivated to learn.

This school was a great place to attend. The campuses were maintained, well-run, and a reasonable price compared to many other colleges.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2018

I am very satisfied with my experience at Florida Atlantic University. The administrative staff for the online accounting program were very helpful and friendly in explaining the whole process from beginning registration to the curriculum of the program. The online master's program is very convenient especially for individuals who are working full time or have a family to take care of. The classes are fully held online with live lectures recorded for students to view in their own pace and time. The professors are very knowledgeable and most have a working professional background that they share stories and experiences in their fields. The tuition cost is very reasonable for a masters program. I would highly recommend Florida Atlantic University to any student.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2010

The Master's in Educational Leadership was an excellent choice. It enabled me to continue my Ph.D. in Education with a solid foundation of educational leadership skills. I currently am almost finished with my Ph.D. in Education. Although many classes were offered online for the Master's program, very few classes are offered online for the Ph.D. program.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The Exercise Science and Health Promotion department at Florida Atlantic University is one of extreme prestige, mixed with unbound flexibility that is designed for either conventional or working students such as myself. The program offers a range of classes that extensively covers both Exercise Physiology and Health promotion, and allows one to choose which concentration to focus on. The class scheduling and flexibility is one of the key trademarks of this program. Since I am fulltime employee, it was essential for me to have an online option available in case class times conflicted with my work schedule. The staff and advisors work hand in hand with the students to provide an optimal experience as well as strong knowledge and preparedness for possible issues that may arise later on in your career. As I finish my master's at FAU I feel an overwhelming sense of preparedness and completely ready to face the issues and possible research that is to be conducted in this field. The Exercise Science and Health Promotion master's program at Florida Atlantic university is highly regarded in my eyes and I recommended it to anyone that seeks a degree in this field.

The University is located near to the beach. Weather is awesome with sunny sky throughout the year. University has students from all around the world, of all ethnicities and races. I would say one of the diverse university in the United States. The university has very good teaching and learning environment.
