Student & Graduate Reviews

4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is awesome. You get to meet your instructors at a personal level. Your professors will be interim vice presidents, deans, directors, etc. of the higher education department. Therefore, it is a very good opportunity to get letter of recommendations, etc.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program starts with the top-quality faculty. The FIU MPA Faculty is the largest is South Florida and is the one only full-time public administration department in Miami-Dade County. The majority of the program’s courses are taught by full-time FIU Public Administration professors who are also top scholars in the field of public administration. FIU’s MPA program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA), and is the only NASPAA Accredited Program in Miami-Dade County. The U.S. News and World Report ranks the MPA program at FIU the best in the South Florida region. The cons of my graduate program are the availability of classes offer each semester along with the very late class times. There is also just one scholarship the program offers for students to apply to.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2015

The Athletic Training Program offers exceptional educational quality and help for not just the beginning athletic training student, but also the graduating student. They will assist a student in anything possible to help them reach their next goal of either continuing their education or finding a job. Although it is hard to commute in Miami, FL it is still possible and well worth the time to attend this fine program. Financial Aid is readily available in the form of loans, but there is only 1 scholarship for the program. This is sometimes expected with graduate programs. Although there are some cons, the majority of attributes this program has are very desirable. It prepares well driven students to excel in the field of Athletic Training and prepares you for working in all different environments, with diverse health care professional teams.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Although this school's quality is improving, its reputation isn't catching up very quickly. I think this significantly limits job prospects.

Small program which allows better quality of learning.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros include being able to take online and on campus classes, meeting with groups to discuss homework and projects, and the ability to explore other courses outside their major an individual can take in order to expand their knowledge. Cons would be the financial aid. I do not believe they are very well organized.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program does a good job of networking scientists from many different fields in collaborative research. However, I would appreciate a more college-town atmosphere and some sort of public transportation.
