Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

The cognitive neuroscience department one of the best department in this regards among the other universities in the nation. The strength of the department of visual perception is the biggest advantage among the other branches of cognitive neuroscience. This is the potential school to train the graduate students to the same standard as the other good schools teach. I would recommend others to choose this school as their potential graduate school.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016

My name is N.F. and Im a candidate for a dual degree program offered at Florida Atlantic University through the College of Social Inquiry known as the Barch Murp Program. This program offers a Bachelor Degree in Architecture and a Masters Degree in Urban & Regional Planning. Even though, the program overlaps its treated separate as each candidates for the program has to complete and graduate from the Architecture program first before they can apply to the Masters of Urban & Regional Planning program. I graduated from the Architecture program on August 9, 2016 and is expected to graduate from the Masters of Urban & Regional Planning program in May of 2017. Florida Atlantic University has provided me with tremendous opportunities for success. One opportunity that makes learning extremely exciting to me is the complete access to the twenty four hour computer lab on the Fort Lauderdale campus. Just the thought of knowing that only FAU students have twenty four hour access to the building with security guards and the latest computer software in the lab, makes me feel I can achieve anything. The curriculum is extremely rigorous but the University gives us training wheels to succeed. Each student has an Academic Adviser who is very accessible at all times who guides us with our educational plan, which keeps us on track so we can graduate in a timely manner. They are like our continuous tour guide in a strange place. With their guidance all are welcome. The Professors are very knowledgeable, helpful and professional. They make themselves accessible to each student who needs extra help. The university allows us to envision success through their many workshops, labs; library and my favorite, mini stress relieve parties with free food. Florida Atlantic University has its own unique, melting pot of students living and working together to achieve one common goal, success.

Degree: Criminology
Graduation Year: 2015

Florida Atlantic University is a great school. I am currently in the master's program and I enjoy it so far. The professors are great, the classroom are not so big which makes it easier for not only the professor but the students, they are able to answer all of our questions. Lastly I was extremely impress by the faculty in my graduate program. They are so willing to help us, either with job offers or internships. They really do have a open door policy which is rare in some universities.

Florida Atlantic University's MBA in Sport Management program lives up to the billing as being one of the best in the world. The skills and knowledge you learn are unparalleled and the faculty and staff are there to assist you whenever is needed with classwork and in general.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

I am in the Women and gender studies program at Florida Atlantic University. It is a small rigorous program. I goal is to gain my PhD, pursuing research in Women's and Gender studies. I feel encouraged and well directed at FAU. I highly recommend FAU and this program in particular.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2021

I am currently attending FAU for my PhD in Business Management. FAU is a great school. Their Business PhD program is very well organized and efficient. The professors have open door policies to assist and welcome feedback. The other students in the program are very collaborative, as they don't see a competitive landscape as a beneficial tool.

Degree: Nursing

Florida Atlantic University has been a great experience so far! I started my graduate program May 2016 and the guidance and instructors have been beyond amazing and helpful. Class sizes are small but encourages strong particpation with great feedback. Instructors respond quickly and provide thorough instruction with every assignment. And lastly, my class so far has become apart of my family, we all get along so well and help in every way to make sure everyone passes and gets the proper help needed.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

FAU has a great up-and-coming bioengineering program. Though small, the course offerings are unique and structured around a students strong-suits. This program is tailored for students to either get a string education in advanced biology, engineering or a hybrid of both. The faculty and advisors truly want what is best for you and will help you tailor your coursework so you can develop strengths in the areas of your choosing. In addition, this university has a strong emphasis on having students become involved in research and have the resources to get students working in labs in their field of interest. This program will only help you to develop a strong resume for when pursuing a career in the biological or biomedical fields.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2020

I have had a great experience at Florida Atlantic University, specifically mostly the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute Campus, this last year. The classes have been very interesting especially the Marine Microbiology and Molecular Biology Lecture and Lab, Natural History of the Indian River Lagoon and Symbiosis courses. Dr. M., Dr. H., Dr. M., Dr. S. and Dr. B. really cared about their students and ran awesome courses. I do wish that more classes were available via video so that I did not have to drive down to Boca, but it was a nice change of pace.
