Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The faculty at Florida State University's College of Social Work are exceptionally kind, helpful and inspiring, Furthermore, they offered a rigorous and accredited part-time MSW program which made it possible for me to pursue a degree while working.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

Florida State University's online MBA program has been good thus far. I am in my third semester and will be half way done by the end of this current semester. Taking FSU's MBA courses online has allowed me more flexibility for my other endeavors while providing a diverse method of learning, including textbook readings, PowerPoints, recorded classes, and group assignments. Taking classes online is much easier these days and Florida State University makes their online MBA program simple to stay on track.

Being a student at the Florida State University was a privilege. There are endless opportunities at FSU academically, socially, and culturally. The campus is absolutely gorgeous, athletics are among the top ranked in the nation, and FSU is full of tradition and diversity.

Great school don't let the distractions get you sidetracked. Embrace everything about the school and all it has to offer. The city is only a great city because of the college. Everyone is very friendly and definitely enjoys all of their libations. FSU!
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 1987

I did Education to teach Spanish and History and enjoyed it. I did Master's in Library Science(now Information Studies) and was a librarian and director for many years. It was very rewarding. I was a school librarian, public librarian and director of a system. FSU was great.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2018

Overall I think that FSU does a great job providing students with knowledge and opportunities to prepare students for a successful career. Areas of strength include diversity, graduate funding, and employment opportunities for graduate students. My joint degrees are funded by an assistantship. Unfortunately, FSU does have limited resources, so if you come from a big school with big funds (like I did), FSU is not that school. It is a big school with small funds, they lack a lot of resources like a good student transportation system, textbooks at the bookstore, etc. The graduate classes are also extremely large for what you might consider your typical graduate class size. My classes have close to 40 people in them, and that's larger than my undergraduate classes were at a school that was the same size as FSU. Another great benefit is the proximity of the school to the capital and state agencies. If you want to work with state agencies there is definitely an opportunity here. I believe FSU is a great choice for students, you just have to be accepting of the fact that every school has flaws, and FSU's flaws are that it is not your typical large university.
