Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

This department lacks any real sense of community or sociability

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The level of academic competitiveness is healthy and education quality is above average, but like most graduate programs, you get out of it what you put in. There is not much campus housing for grad students. If you are excited about college football and social atmosphere, it's a good place to be. The town has lots of neat restaurants/bars that can start to make you feel at home. The school's resources are more than adequate in terms of technology, health services, counseling, campus food, etc. Faculty are busy, but at least in my department, usually supportive and willing to help.

FSU strikes a great balance between working hard and playing hard. The graduate programs are competitive in their respective fields, with world-renowned professors. The campus has a number of valuable services, and overall, I'm very glad I chose FSU for my graduate studies.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the graduate English department. I have found the staff to be superb on every level- knowledgeable and accessible, and just all around great people. I also think this year includes a great group of graduate students, and we've really been making the most of the beautiful areas surrounding Tallahassee with weekly outdoor adventures. I highly suggest this to incoming students.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I love my program. The faculty are very supportive and very available and I feel very well-trained. The only "negative" is that the program is not regarded as "top tier" by some institutions and may limit my competitiveness on the job market.

I think the best thing about the Florida State University sciences program is the accessibility of the faculty.
