Degree: Interior Design
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that the program is really valid and it is preparing me for the work life after school in a very good way. The cons are that the schedule is really tight and it doesn't let me time to do extra curricular stuff.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2015

I would like to say I like my program and current research projects which mean a lot to the environment. The facilities in our dept are also advanced and fancy. I hope that our dept can provide grad students more info about future career info by holding seminar or posting jobs info on board.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Pro: The program is well prepared. The mandatory workshop allowed for students to network and get to know each other, even though the program is online. The cohort meets 3 times until graduation. The professors are very helpful and educated. The course material is interesting and keep students interested in their class. Con: Cost of the program is very expensive. Financial Aid is not helpful when obtaining financial assistance or notifying students of pending information.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

The Social Work Graduate Program is amazing, small department of professors and faculty who are ready to help students. The program is not the biggest the university offers but this allows every social work student the opportunity to get to meet, bond closer to and network with other social work students.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2014

I am in the MS IT program which is fairly new. The program has a number of courses that I believe are important for industry knowledge. However, the approach of teaching said courses are more geared towards a career in academia.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

I think Chemistry is a very good department having excellent research facilities. If our department can continue their ongoing progress,it will be positioned within top 100 graduate school in USA within couple of years.

The experiences at FIU had helped me evolve. Very supportive faculty and always willing to help in professional matters. Overall, a good grad school.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is good but I feel that more support should be given from FIU to the Sciences. Also since the university grew in a residential area (and not the residential area around the university) there aren't many interesting things to do around FIU. Also I feel that with time FIU will support local public transportation to accommodate students that live near campus (within 5 miles) so that they don't have to have a car.
