Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

The school does an amazing job using technology to it's maximum potential. The student to faculty ratio is ideal; allowing for students to communicate with their professors whenever necessary. The school also has an excellent internship program, in which students are placed in the most beneficial environment for their desired field.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

There are many pros to this grad program and very little cons so far. One major pro is that you get to give back to the community. With the internship and the subject of public service there are many ways to give back. Another pro is how easy it is to get in contact with your professors. Unlike large universities where students are just a number, at FGCU it isn't hard to contact a professor for help. They are usually just a phone call or e-mail away, or you can visit them at their offices. A con would be all the reading that is expected of you. It seems almost impossible to get the reading done sometimes.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2011

I enjoy my graduate program, my cohort, and my instructors. This isn't just school, this is practical experience and this institution makes strides in job placement after completion of the program. The program itself has 5 clinical internships that prepare you for your professional career. And, the program is a CACREP certified program - therefore nationally recognized. There's not much in Fort Myers, Fla but a wonderful school.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Small school feel means lots of 1 on 1 time with your graduate advisers and your committee. This has been pivotal in my successes here. The school doesn't have the funding for cutting edge technologies yet, but what is available is worth your while.
