Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

My particular graduate program, in Art Therapy, is an outstanding one. The class size is perfect where professors are able to tailor to each students specific needs and questions. The program provides a great opportunity to find ones one niche in the field. Multiple practicums allow students to pin-point future career goals and to be well rounded individuals in the field. The only con would be lack of financial assistance. Although some is available, it may take some outside assistance as well.

Pros- With the MPH program, we have a wide range of job opportunities to choose from. From health management to public policy, we would qualify for all. Cons- The program is not yet accredited. However, it is in the process of accreditation and we have the final visit on September this year

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

I loved everything about this program except for the excessive workload and lack of accountability and justice for non-performing group members. Some group members were able to pass all of their classes by putting in virtually zero work while others were stuck putting 40+ hrs/week into group projects.

The Sports Sciences program at FSU is a tight knit program that allows the students to work closely with professors. Professors are extremely helpful and support you and genuinely want the best for each student. They make it a priority to know each student in the program and tailor the program to fit the students interests. We work with elite student athletes and its a very hands on program. Even though I believe the small atmosphere of the program to be a positive (you're not another number in the class, your opinion is valued) some people may enjoy a bigger program with more students.

The school has AMAZING customer service, which is not available in other locations. I also find the courses relevant and useful as I already work in the profession. I find the teachers accessible and willing to help. Overall just great school and program.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

PROS: The Italian Studies program at Florida State University is personally attentive to each of its students. Each faculty member is easily available to discuss program and career-related matters. Students are always made aware of new career, study, and travel opportunities. The courses are engaging and challenging, and students have the choice to take a few courses outside of the Italian department including those in other modern languages and some from entirely different disciplines, provided they are beneficial to the student's degree/career and complements courses taken within the program. Generous teaching assistantships are almost always offered to qualified students who are accepted into the program, which helps to significantly offset the cost of tuition as well as provides students with the growth that accompanies teaching a college foreign language course. CONS: There is usually a limited number of Italian Studies courses offered each semester, as the program is small. There are not as many choices as desired.

For my particular program, it is very highly regarded and one of only two schools accredited for this program in my state.
