Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2013

I am pursuing the Masters in Accounting at Florida Atlantic University. The instruction and networking opportunities have been superb. I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelors in Applied Economics, and was thrilled to be accepted at FAU for the Masters in Accounting. There, you will be given the opportunity to not just earn the degree, but network with companies looking for graduates like yourself. If you are an economics student, and you are not pursuing a doctorate in economics, you may want to consider the Masters in Accounting at Florida Atlantic University.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

I greatly enjoyed my overall experience earning the ISLT Masters online. The curriculum was very rigorous and insightful for the majority of courses. Instructors quite caring and helpful. I became passionate about my major. However, I was unable to receive any increase in salary. I blame this on my place of employment and on the size of the city I live in. I am confident that if I moved to a larger area, I could double my salary. Although I love my major, I do wish it were more relevant to my city of residence or that my place of employment valued higher education more. This may seem as more of a personal issue, but these things can be discussed with career professionals prior to enrolling and investing so much. In addition, my courses were 100% online, and after graduating I had no network to build from in search of employment prospects. Through this experience I really began to understand how valuable networking can be and this program did not provide help in this regard at my time of enrollment. I hope this is something that changes. I did voice my concerns.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

Overall, the Florida State College of Medicine is a great program with a valuable underlying mission. The faculty and staff are always eager to help us and are truly vested in our success and happiness.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This program provided me experience in research and teaching internships. Through this program, I have been able to work alongside local teachers and university professors. This has allowed me to enhance my networking capabilities and communicate community education needs with my peers. This program could have improved by creating more workshop or event opportunities. Creating a more interactive experience between the students within the program, would have established long-term academic relationships with fellow educators.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently attending the criminal justice distance learning program and I absolutely love it. This is my second semester in the program and so far it has been absolutely wonderful. The professors are great and are more than willing to assist you if you have ever have any problems or concerns. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in a particular of this nature to really consider applying to FSU.

4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2021

It is one of the top schools in criminology discipline. Professors are intelligent and have great academic achievement. They are very supportive and easy to reach for students. The courses are well organized and inspiring to students. However, the fundings for students are less than expected.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

As a distance learning student, I don't feel I can explain much about the physical campus, but as an institution, I have received an excellent education at FSU! The professors and knowledgeable, courses are high-tech and well-designed. I am getting a lot of value out of my program.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2017

I think my program is pretty good. You can learn some real things like practical skills, and the faculty there is very responsible. The department will try hard to find you an internship. I love the atmosphere here.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2020

The comradery within the department is like nowhere else I have seen. The department is a family that is professional at all he right times. The faculty really look out for their grad students and make sure they are planning for their future after graduation. Cons: we have to pay outrageous fees on top of our stipend and tuition waiver. Not horrible, but that extra $1000 would go a long way.
