Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

The Nutrition and Dietetics Program at Florida International University is superb! I completed both my Bacherlor of Science and my Master of Science in their program and am currently working on my PhD. The faculty is brilliant, organized and understanding and the campus is absolutely beautiful and offers many amenities for the students. For anyone interested in studying nutrition, FIU is the way to go!

Degree: Engineering Management
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida International University is a growing University. It isn't well known for many people outside Florida but it is a University that will be ranked a top 20 school in a couple of years. I graduated with My EE degree and i have to say it was a really good program and learned a lot to prepare myself after graduation. I recently enrolled again to pursue my Masters Degree in Engineering Management and I have to say the program is currently on of a kind if you are pursuing anything Management within you career it is a program that help you get to that level quickly and professionally.

FIU is a multicultural, rigorous, and professional learning space. There are many opportunities to get involved in the community and prepare for your career. Professors are invested in your learning and there are ample campus resources for every individual and situation. I am pursing my second degree from this University and couldn't be more satisfied!

Degree: Biology

Biology major at FIU may be rigorous but it so worth it at the end of the day with the great professors at FIU. Professors actually care for there students and students feel welcomed to ask questions. Professors even provide students with extra office hours if necessary

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel blessed to have earned both merit and financial need based scholarships to attend Florida International University. As I continue to pursue a specialized graduate degree, I appreciate any opportunity to receive necessary funding. The pros of my masters in public healthcare policy are the quality of education and networking events available to educate the student body. We are constantly invited to seminars keeping us inspired to network and understand the current challenges of healthcare delivery beyond the classroom. Exposing us to extra insight strengthens my commitment to excellence fueling me to apply the knowledge to each healthcare sector I service.

Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2017

I think the graduate program at FIU is great because of the ability to work and go to school. Other universities don't have as many professional job options because they aren't in big cities. So getting real job experience and getting an education is much easier at FIU. The cons is that there isn't a lot of funding options for graduate students. While other schools to give grants to those who had a high GPA in undergrad.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The Professional Science Masters in Forensic Science Program has a lot of pros. The program is designed for people who are working full-time and pursuing a masters degree at the same time. The academic schedule is, therefore, very flexible. The professors involved in the program are knowledgable and dedicated to making your degree count. Since the program is mostly online, you can access and "attend" your classes from home, work, or anywhere with an internet connection. Online classes are immersive in a different way. Professors will usually respond to your emails and posts, some professors quicker than others. And they will work to try to personalize your education. Cons: You don't get the benefit of face-to-face interaction in a classroom, so any questions you have about the course content are not instantly answered. In order to have questions answered, you must post and wait for a reply from the professor. Sometimes information is not always updated from semester to semester on online modules since the content is traveling from professor to course designer to student. So there is sometimes a small lapse between when the professor submits changes to when the course designer uploads the changes.

FIU has a very good career management system particularly if you are interested in staying in Miami, FL to start your career. Program Administration is flexible and wants to work with students. Student portal is strong. As far as Cons, so far I don't have any
