Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently in my second year of the urban and regional planning graduate program at FSU. I have thoroughly enjoyed this program. The faculty and staff have been very helpful with classes, networking, and provided plenty of opportunities to gain experience in the field. My peers have also been very friendly and helpful. Most of my classes have been great and I feel that I have gained an important education in this program that will help me to be successful in my future career.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The biggest pro of FSU Law is the faculty. They strike an incredible balance of scholarship and teaching. Other pros include: the overall cost of the education, even if you are an out-of-state student, you can become an in-state student within a year; and the large amount of legal work in Florida's capital city.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The Music Therapy Graduate Program is one of the best in the nation. It is constantly providing top of the line research. Working and studying under such esteemed professors is a privilege and motivation to strive for excellence in my career. This program teaches you not only to become an outstanding therapist, but it pushes you to become independent. Yet, this could also be considered a con since we do not have as much of a guiding hand to others. For me, it has taught me to think on my feet and on my own. This is an excellent program where I am learning more and more each day.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

As an online student, I cannot comment on aspects of the FSU experience specific to the campus itself, but I have been challenged by my courses. I have also been very happy with the accessibility of my professors.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The FSU MPA program is a fantastic program overall. It it well ranked, faculty members are very supportive, and the program is very customizable. The ability to customize the program has been one of the best parts of grad school experience for me thus far. It is refreshing to not only be permitted to pursue my unique interests but do be encouraged to do so by faculty as well. The Tallahassee area is not the most appealing area to live longterm but cost of living is pretty affordable so that is beneficial for students. When applying to graduate programs I was accepted into several programs and I am extremely grateful that I decided to go to FSU. Being apart of the Askew School has been a wonderful experience.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate programs includes the exposure to opportunities such as teaching and research. The cons include there not being more scholarships and funding. Travel opportunities to present research should be more encouraged.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Online courses provide a lot of flexibility for my schedule as I work full time and coach on the side. Also at FSU the faculty really engages in our student discussions. By being in classes with other working professionals across the world it allows a better understanding of how weekly topics are applied to real world business. FSU has a contract with Microsoft to allow students to download free software that would normally cost hundreds - thousands of dollars. Cons: Online courses at FSU are more expensive than in-state and out of state tuition. For a Masters in Information Systems the program course load is lacking a little bit of a technical side.
