Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The Masters of Global Governance(MAGG) Program helps improve one's public speaking, and analytical writing skills. The Program covers a wide range of interesting topics. Everything we learn is practical and can be easily applied in several fields. The course load is heavy, but I feel that is a good thing, because then we are getting our money's worth. My Program Coordinator has given my cohort many opportunities to network. Unfortunately, the university of FIU doesn't offer many scholarships in my field of study for Graduate Students. Otherwise, FIU and the MAGG Program are great!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

FIU is my dream school. I am elated to be a part of a program that lives its socially conscious values to the extent that HWCOM does.
3.92 out of 5.0

The program will train me to be a leader in my community, effectuate real change in the schools, and empower students to reach their full potential.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2020

This program blew me away with the work experience, content knowledge and genuine warmth of the professors. In addition, they understood what it meant to be a graduate student who had to juggle a job at the same time. Cons were very minimal and limited mostly to the support staff of the university as a whole--which is largely unrelated to the actual graduate program.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

I am pursuing a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Mathematics Education. I am very pleased with the flexibility of the classes available as they are after work hours. Being an Elementary Teacher, the availability of the classes are perfect as they do not interfere with my job. I am also pleased with the availability of online classes. I am very pleased with the program.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2012

Pros: I love the diversity within the program and interdisciplinary nature of many professors there. There are a lot of scholarship and funding options for minorities, which I took full advantage of. Cons: The course work was not very challenging for me. I also feel there were too many classes that were combined with Undergrad and Grad students.
3.5 out of 5.0

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2018

Great Master of Architecture 5-year Accelerated program! A lot of competitiveness, which pushes you even more to do amazing in your projects, which are based on real life situations and current problems of sustainability. Being located in Miami, a niche for artistic expression, and where Architecture is ever-growing, Florida International University is the perfect place to be World's Ahead!
1.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2015

Professor only interested in promoting their own agenda, overlooking curriculum and student concerns, often resulting in exploiting students to build exhibitions instead of having them learn. Technical classes offered are short and leave students unprepared. 3d modelling classes do not teach software that is relevant to practicing firms. Fabrication and print labs are ok, but machines often break and impossible to use when deadlines are due. FIU keeps taking in more students, leaving many without a proper desk in studio. Graduate students pay graduate tuition (nearly double) for undergrad courses. Advising is usually disorganized and is known for making mistakes, sometimes leaving out courses which students need to take (and finding out late a class had to be taken). Study abroad options are good and interesting. Sometimes classes are so large, multiple teacher assistants are needed, resulting in poor and biased assessment of student work. A handful of professors are very involved and extremely inspiring. Current chair of architecture works little with students, not very understanding, and offers meager support for student organizations. Overall, FIU is to be avoided.
