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.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2013

FIU's research faculty are at the top of their respective fields. It was enlightening to learn from and work with these faculty members. The equipment available for research was also far above my expectations, allowing me to obtain results that may have otherwise been difficult or impossible to get by any other means.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2014

This university is not very international, with more than 60% of students being hispanic (and the majority of those Cuban.) Chemistry dept is good but get ready for a LOT of work, and don't expect much of a social life. This is comparable to other grad school programs though. It really depends on your advisor. We also have a great Forensic Chemistry program that is excellent.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The Healthcare MBA program at Florida International University is excellent. As a new student to this online program, I just attended a mandatory residency last week that was well-prepared and presented. The program had the online students stay at a local hotel and provided transportation daily. Even though the program is fully online, the residency is required so that students bond prior to the start of the semester. I think this is a great idea as it allows students who choose to complete an online degree with tools needed to succeed and the opportunity to network with classmates.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors really care about your education. However, the graduate office may be hard to reach sometimes and so it may take a while to get all documents needed in order to be prepared for the following school year.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The best aspect of pursuing a degree in social work at Florida International University is the opportunity to be taught under well seasoned professionals. The educators here are experienced in the field and are always looking for enhancing opportunities for students. They are full of compassion and knowledge. The required internships makes the program a little rigorous; however, it provides students with the opportunity to excel in the practice.

It is an advantage for bilingual and multicultural students like me.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I applied for the MBA program at FIU and got accepted. The instructors are very helpful and materials are well written. The good thing you can stay home, work on your assignments and submit them online. Be prepared to take the commitment to complete the program. Some of the classes are pretty hard. Some require frequent attendance, and some require extensive interactions among group members as well as the instructors. The program is expensive and I hope I can have enough money to pay it off.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2013

I would not choose graduate school if I were to do this again. That has nothing to do with FIU as a school, but with the ridiculous work hours for pay on or around the US poverty line that are inherent to any graduate program.
