Student & Graduate Reviews

4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2013

I learned quality information from my graduate program, however, I entered my first year of teaching feeling as if all of the information I learned was not applicable or useful for me. I taught myself most of the methods and strategies I use in my classroom .

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida State University is an excellent university with a lot to offer!
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I absolutely love Florida State University. It's one of the best schools, challenging yet very well organized.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall, a very strong program with a group of people who obviously care about how the grad student population is doing. The biggest problems appear to relate more to bureaucracy and state/university level politics than the department. No unnecessary competition, professors are very helpful, and although you will work hard, you will know you are learning in the process.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The online program is both a pro and a con. As a working adult with a family I need the flexibility but I miss the classroom atmosphere and collaboration with my peers.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2016

Very intense. Excellent for those with no prior knowledge of film production to jump in and learn a lot. If you already have a film degree, perhaps look at other schools also.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Financial Aid is not helpful. Trying to get a straight answer from them is like trying to understand T.S. Eliot after reading it only once: you'd have a better chance lighting a torch in pouring rain. However, I like the low cost, I love the attention and dedication the professors have, and I love the effort the school makes to ensure that we have a social life outside of law school.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Love FSU Law! Amazing faculty. Friendly classmates. Many networking opportunities.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

FSU Law School has mostly great professors, great career placement services, and does not have a huge number of students (which gives the school a comfortable feel). FSU is in Tallahassee, which provides many opportunities for law students.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

It's a quality education for staying in-state. The faculty is overall very helpful.
