Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

i am an international student, currently enrolled in Forida Atlantic Univeristy. the campus is gorgeous, the faculty is most welcoming and the helpful and warm words from the on-campus staff helped me decide on this college. i, being a foreigner was very anxious with my choice of college but I am extremely proud and happy about my choice of school.There are plenty of on and off campus options for living and extra curricular activities. its a home away from home.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

FAU is a great campus for undergrads who are looking for a smaller scale university where they will not be tempted by partying. However, my experience with the master's program in sociology is that if you are looking for this degree to help you attain a job you should look at other programs. If you simply want to learn it does the job but as far as preparing you for post master's, I feel they could improve the program greatly.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently a graduate student at Florida Atlantic University, and I am going into my second year of my program. As an undergraduate student I also attended this wonderful university. It is located in the Sunshine State of Florida, where the weather and the blue skies on campus never disappoint. This institution is warm and welcoming. FAU has opened doors for my future that I could have never imagined. It has given me a career that will help me to assist individuals through counseling. The School of Social Work has educated me on what it means to be a social worker. The curriculum that I have been exposed to has pushed me to be better as a student in my critical thinking and how I approach the world. The professors at FAU genuinely care about students' success as a whole. Overall, FAU is a great place to not only obtain an education, but it also a great place to progress and learn as an individual.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Florida Atlantic University is a wonderful school with so much diversity. The social work program that I am a part of has aided me in becoming the best social worker I believe I can be. The professors genuinely care about your learning and your well being, and the internship programs that the school of social work puts you through really helps jump-start your future as a social worker. I wouldn't have traded my education for any other university. I am excited to learn more in my masters program!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

There are many pros to FAU grad school. The MBA program at FAU is one of the best ones around. I know many people who have graduated from other large universities in Florida, and all come to FAU for graduate studies. The cons to this program might be the reliance on online classes. I personally don't prefer online classes because they cost more and aren't any better than in-person classes. FAU has highly shifted to online learning, but I feel that is the future for most universities unfortunately.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

Finding a better advisor and changing thesis topics helped a ton, but ended up losing years of research because of the need to switch. There was one professor in the department that gave arbitrary grades based on whether he liked you or not, so all of your work did not matter.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The program has been informative. The professors are accessible and knowledgeable. The main con is the extra costs associated with my classes. Between computer programs I've had to purchase and the cost of textbooks it has been a struggle.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently finishing my Master's in Health Administration at Florida Atlantic University. This program was great in that it taught me a lot I did not know about health care organizations and the business aspect of health care facilities. The course I enjoyed the most is the internship course. This course allowed students to do an internship in a health care organization for a semester, which really helped students to learn by doing and put the theory to work. I recommend this program to most students if you are interested in management and administration.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program has offered me the knowledge and skills to perform effectively, confidently, and efficiently in my field.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

I think it's a great program for its size. It is very close knit group and you can rely on everyone to support you through the journey. It is not the most organized program sometimes and some of the course work is not justifies, but it is still challenging and provides a good foundation for speech-language pathology.
