Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are that you are in an environment that fosters learning. The professors are helpful, and there are many resources available on campus to meet your needs. The workload is heavy, but manageable. The cons? Some say it's easier than it should be for a graduate program. I disagree in the respect that what we need to learn may not require us knowing other information that is irrelevant.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I have enjoyed my time at fsu. It allows working adults to continue their education part-time. The course work is challenging but rewarding and the ability to learn from other working adults is immeasurable.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The library program is very economical for the awesome education that you receive at Florida State. The MLIS in Children's Library Services is #1 in the country and we are ranked in the top 25 i-schools.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel the MSW program is excellent. I am currently enrolled in the distance learning program where students are able to balance working fulltime, a family and still obtain a graduate degree without feeling like we are getting any less of a quality education. The workload can be time consuming and it is difficult to juggle graduate level classes with working fulltime and caring for a family but I feel that the way the program is set up students not only learn the material but from one another through other student's experiences and personal stories and perspectives.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The biggest advantages to this program are the caliber of the professors and the networking potential. We do a lot of group projects, and I get the opportunity to work with students all over the world and from all kinds of different backgrounds personally and professionally. The biggest cons for me is that most of my professors don't utilize the video lecture technology and the course structure can be disorganized and difficult to follow the structure of the course. The workload can be a bit much at times making it difficult to really absorb the material.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2008

FSU has an excellent reputation. The technology for the online campus exceeded expectations. Instructors were very knowledgeable. Due to it being in an online format, transportation was hardly ever needed. Also, financial aid adminstration was excellent.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The FSU MBA program prepares students by presenting them with a variety of business best practices and theories. The student body has a diverse set of skills and experiences; most people are working full-time and are able to translate real-world experiences into the classroom.
