Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is very intense and requires a lot of hard work and dedication, but it's completely worth it, in my opinion. You're given faculty support and know-how while you're learning, it's very useful.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Great program, open door policy i.e. if you have questions just walk into any lab and you will be helped. Good seminars. Gathering of graduate students during lunches with speakers is very interactive. Competitive, which drives you to do better.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2019

Difficult program that requires a lot of work for students. Teachers are supportive and challenge students to learn and engage as much as possible. Program produces excellent pedagogues of music theory.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

The history seminars I have taken have been uniformly excellant. Professors are also quite willing to take on individual students for independent work, even if they are not previously connected with the student. Due to lack of funding the Department has recently cut back its IT, including eliminating the in Department computer lab. Workload is typical for a graduate school. The courses on historiography and research preparation are both excellant. Tallahassee is a typical southern town, albeit slightly more liberal than the rest of the panhandle.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

This program challenges your research and writing skills. The teachers are very knowledgable and willing to help. I think there needs to be more classes that involve more practical work that will be used in the real world. For explain press releases, web blogs, social media post and marketing plans

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Excellent program. The faculty are helpful and always willing to provide assistance to the graduate students. The program does an excellent job of providing a sufficient stipend, as well as benefits for their students. My only wish was that there were more classes focused on institutions and quantitative work, but the program does an excellent job guiding the student to other programs for help
