Student & Graduate Reviews

4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

They have experienced professors who do breakthrough research projects, the faculty and students are nationally renowned and talented at earning grant money for the program. If you are interested in going in to research or teaching in the public school system for communication disorders, Florida State is your best option. They also have a distance learning program available to Florida residents.

My graduate programs allows students to participate at the Panama City campus of the main campus. They offer many diverse opportunities for growth and education.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The teachers are awesome. We have discussions rather than classes where the professors speak and the class goes to sleep. They are there for you when you need them. As an international student, I am quite surprised at how easy going professors can be. Transportation is quite a hassle. Have to wait for the bus for at least half an hour and if you own a car, you'd better reach campus half an hour early for a good parking spot. by 2014, the whole campus would be turned smoke free, so that is kinda bad news for smokers and good news for the ones who want to quit.

Faculty are invested in the student's experience and work hard to ensure academic and professional success. Assistantships provide the opportunity to work as a professional while subsidizing all tuition costs too.

I enjoy my program because I am working with others that have similar goals and a global outlook on education. We are all travelers. I am also able apply elective credits to topics and subjects I am interested in.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I have enjoyed my first year at FSU. My professors have been very accessible and helpful. The requirements here for a Masters Degree in Music, specifically Vocal Performance are not overly demanding, particularly if you have had languages and diction in your undergraduate. There are a good number of performance opportunities as well, with two main stage operas a year and then a summer opera and plenty of recitals to sing if you are interested in assisting the accompaniment students. The negatives are not really negatives. Spatially, the Arts buildings are set away from the rest of the campus which is okay. There is bus service but it is odd and doesn't run 24 hours a day. It is definitely a 'need a car' kinda town and school.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

The Florida State University is a great school to attend. I received my B.A from Florida State and loved it so much I decided to attend for my graduate degree. The professors and advisors are so willing to work with you to make sure you are on the right path for your future. The atmosphere is competitive yet engaging as it allows for diversity of students.

The program is really challenging and really prepares you for teaching reading and language courses. It is a lot of work and is not for the faint of heart but it is well worth the time and effort.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is very competitive. The professors have a lot of practical experience, are easily accessible, and clearly happy to be there. It is a welcoming environment that encourages the pursuit of knowledge and challenges the student to go beyond the minimum requirements. Tallahassee is a small environment, but the program works to find as many practicum opportunities and other types of opportunities as possible to ensure the best possible educational experience.
