Student & Graduate Reviews

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.
2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Interior Design
Graduation Year: 2015

This program proves small enough that you are valued as an individual and the faculty/student ratio proves effective. More training, less "figure it out yourself" would be conducive to the learning environment, easing stress and workload.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2018

Very strong on theory, qualitative methods, and public service. Weak on quantitative methods other than GIS.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

There are a wide variety of resource to help you achieve personally, educationally, professionally, etc. Getting to school can be a hassle and finding parking which are minor cons compare to the experience and knowledge you would be getting at FIU!
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the program is tat the faculty is amazing and the facility is well p to date. We truly get the latest in everything!! Some cons would be that it is still a fairly new program so the difference from one year to the nest seem to change a lot but it seems to always be improvement changes.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

We have excellent professors that currently work or have worked in their field. There cost of our programs is very affordable and the quality of education is increasing every year.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2013

Most classes are offered once a year- no flexibility. Professors act as both advisors and faculty. Too many students enrolled when very few internships spots are available. Too many inexplicable fees. Expansion in ongoing but we are told that not enough space is available to be more flexible with classes offered.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Excellent faculty, both in terms of their expertise as well as support for their graduate students. Good funding and scholarships available. Clear graduation track and guidance available Cons: Not as much funding available for conferences/ professional development.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Great variety of professors. Cons: Most of everything on campus is a "find out on your own" experience.
