Student & Graduate Reviews

2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

I love FSU and this graduate program. The faculty is amazing and the people I have met will be my friends for life.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

A strong, competitive program with decent support (guaranteed but below average stipend) in a nice town.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Florida State University is a great place to study Materials Science and Engineering due to the institution's strong history in Materials research epitomized by the on campus National High Magnetic Field laboratory, High Performance Materials Institute and the recent Energy & Materials hiring initiative that has continually sought out new tenure track faculty to pursue materials-related research. The program also involves 3 rotations in any lab of the student's choice which is a great means of exposure for the participating student. There is a need for more faculty in other research fields of materials science and engineering. This is important for continual improvement of the materials program

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: Great professors, high artistic level, warm environment Decent practice facilities, but a little on the older side
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2019

I am pursuing a masters degree in sociology from Florida State University. I feel my program has a diverse faculty which covers a broad spectrum of topics in research. It is eye-opening to get such a variety of viewpoints. I do feel the program does not get enough recognition on a campus-wide level.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm in the FSU distance learning program for the MSW. It is not online but at a different campus other than the main FSU campus. FSC actually rents space from UF and I attend class there on certain weekends in the semester. The program is a wonderful program. Even though I'm not on the main campus the staff and teachers still make me feel as if I'm a apart of the school. All of the professors have been available to us even when they are back in Tallahassee and take time to help with any work.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2019

we need more projects, more money and more professors
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2016

There are many quality faculty in the program, but the expectations are often changing and unclear. The quality of life here in Tallahassee is good.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry

Overall I am happy with the quality of education that the chem department is offering.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida State University is a great school in the Florida Public College system. It provides a high-level education at an affordable rate. The campus is beautiful and the culture is never boring. I enjoy my classes very much and look forward to going to class every week!
