Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Smaller program equate to more one-on-one learning, numerous opportunities to engage in research, challenging curriculum to ensure an excellent foundation of learning Cons: MA students do not receive funding making it quite difficult to focus on studying when loans are accumulating interest!

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that the pros of my program is being able to learn and study from world class performers who have gain the same experiences I am seeking for my career. I will have the opportunities to apply my studies in real life performances from touring, to guest clinician work in secondary schools. The cons of my program is that I will not have the chance to apply my teachings while in school for post graduate job searches. This is the part of my program that is solely on the student to figure out.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

You are challenged even in your sleep, the courses that you take involve professors that have field experience and you ae able to network and gain a perspective on what you desire to do in terms of career. The faculty is very supportive and resources are available across all areas.

The faculty is great and always willing to help out assuming theyre not tied up in the lab.The course work is very relavent to current research trends. Otherwise, the campus is beautiful, its never so cold you cant go outside and engage in recreational activities.

Degree: Interior Design
Graduation Year: 2016

Faculty to student ratio is great. There are ample opportunities for faculty to aid/assist with graduate studies and understanding the program requirements. The overall town the University is in lacks growth and development, there is great opportunity for growth and a large market for interior design in this town. Not a whole lot going on other than the university. People are extremely friendly.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I love my graduate program. The major issue I have is the lack of diversity in gender. I am one of two males in my cohort, and wonder why this is an issue, but believe there are societal stigmas that support this outcome. I love my professors, they construct the learning experience in ways that I can truly comprehend and apply all information, and truly care.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I love my program so far! I enjoy the transparency of the program and how the faculty and staff are always keeping students informed of their availability, assignments, changes, expectations, etc. Since it is graduate school, there is no hand-holding but expectations are for student success and are not overly outrageous.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is great, tough, and if you're willing to push through it and find substantial funds to make it through, then you chose the right university.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

I love Florida State University, and the Law programs. FSU has a wonderful staff, all of the professors and faculty want you to succeed. The one con is the financial aid, I received no scholarship to attend the Law School, yet after the first year I finished within the top 5% of the class.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The FSU Graduate school offers a great Exercise Physiology program with terrific, motivated professors who are interested and concerned with the progress of their students. The only down side is the often lack of cohesiveness between the various professors within the department.
