Florida State University is an amazing school! It has one of the top MSW programs in the state, and is highly competitive as a result. The quality of the instruction is excellent, and the staff and faculty are always completely engaged with their students. I will always be a Seminole! Thank you Florida State!

Graduation Year: 2018

Florida State University is an amazing school. I completed my undergraduate degree in social work at FSU and am now completing my MSW at FSU as well. The school has excellent teachers that are very knowledgeable about their field. I felt very prepared for my career after graduating with my BSW and am confident I will also be just as prepared graduating with my MSW.

Florida State University is a school you should try to attend if you want to be a Seminole. Decent classes and a lot of different opportunities to get involved with. It's not near the beach, which is a down side, but it's an overall okay university to attend.

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.

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: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program has an extensive amount of requirements, which is only expected given the level of education. It follows the National requirements for course content. It requires two internships. The pros of my program is I get to have hands-on experience for my thesis rather than having to write a paper. The cons to my program is it is only offered on weekends. I work full-time and attend school part-time. I am going 7 days a week which makes it dreadfully exhausting. I wish classes were offered to full-time employees on week nights. I wish the option to attend more than two classes was offered.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I love my graduate program. The major issue I have is the lack of diversity in gender. I am one of two males in my cohort, and wonder why this is an issue, but believe there are societal stigmas that support this outcome. I love my professors, they construct the learning experience in ways that I can truly comprehend and apply all information, and truly care.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I have had great professors--some of the best I've ever had. However, in one semester, I had the worst teacher ever in my whole entire college career. In some classes the workload was ridiculous, and seemed to be "busy work", while in other classes the work was sufficient and I learned quite a bit from it. The major's topics were very interesting, as well as a lot of the core classes. I feel that the school's classrooms need to be updated a bit.
