Student & Graduate Reviews

2.83 out of 5.0
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.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The Higher Education graduate program at FIU is very supportive. The quality of teaching and education is very high. The professors' experience in higher education only contributes to the classroom experience. I am happy to be in this graduate program, and strongly encourage others thinking of going into the field to consider FIU.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

While public health faculty members are both helpful and knowledgable, there is a lack of diversity in terms of research areas. Funding is also lacking for Masters students.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a really great program! I've enjoyed my time so far. From the professors to the students everyone has been super friendly. My favorite professor is Dr. Richard! Ms. Nancy Cid has been extremely sweet and helpful! (She also is my favorite!)
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: communication among students and faculty Cons: only one computer expert to help with entire physics dept
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The professors are very knowledgeable. They are accessible outside the classroom, and they genuinely care about the students and the program.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are that it is a great return on investment, if I hopefully get a job when I finish. The cons is the class times of the day which would interfere with anyone that has a 9am-5pm job. Graduate classes should be at night. People need to support themselves through school, that is why I am applying for scholarships.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

In my opinion, the program overall is very well structured and it has the ability to effectively prepare law students for their professional careers. The available clinics and other programs, the diversity and prominence of the Faculty, the networking and practice opportunities allow students with different academic and professional aspirations to pursue their goals and make the best out of the law school experience. Furthermore, the Administration has created an innovative and highly functional student assistance system that guides its students throughout the difficulties of law school.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: FIU is a CACREP accredited program. The faculties are full engaged in the students learning and networking within the profession of mental health counseling. Cons: lack of Graduate assistanships and scholarships for students.
