Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The professor at Nova Southeastern University are one of a kind. Each and every one of them want you to succeed. They go over and beyond to help you understand the material and well prepare you to be ready for your career upon graduation. Invaluable experience and education. However, the school financial aid could use some revamp. There should be more scholarship opportunities for graduate students and more of a variety.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently enrolled in Nova Southeastern University's Shepard Broad Law School. The program boasts a great deal of diversity with regards to both its student body and professors. Their day program is an great program with many services available to students. The evening program is slightly less accomodating for evening students who work full-time during the day. Events and activities are usually during daytime/communiting times and assistance from support services is not usually available after hours. Overall, it is a good program.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

You will be hard-pressed to find a better education than at Nova Southeastern University. The professors and instructors at the school are top notch, and they provide a learning environment that public universities strive for. Unfortunately the location of the school places students near one of the busiest sections in the entire city. What could easily be a 5-10 mile joy ride turns into a 45-60 minute roadblock of cars trying their best to get onto the interstate. Overall the school excels in its purpose - education. If you can withstand heavy traffic, long and arguably questionable hours on campus, and intense workload then Nova Southeastern University will be a perfect match.

I have only experienced the pros of attending Nova!
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2018

The greatest advantage to this program is that it is designed for working professionals or those with other major commitments. With flexibility in length of program, delivery of courses (online, "face-to-face", hybrid, main campus, "distance-learning" at campuses in multiple other cities), and assistance from faculty, the program is very supportive and individualized to each student. Since NSU has campuses across Florida (and now other states), it has built a large network with other universities, hospitals, clinics, and other resources in the community that are at every student's disposal. This prepares students within the program to develop hands-on skills as clinicians with a variety of professionals, client populations and settings, and gives graduates of the program more opportunities for job placement at those same clinical placements/externships. With the flexibility to work while enrolled in the program, with the exception of full-time externships during the final two semesters, the program does take longer than the two years it takes to complete a typical Master's degree program in Speech-Language Pathology. Since this program is within the College of Education, there is more emphasis placed throughout the program on practices and requirements for working in the school system as opposed to research. One example is there is no option to complete a thesis, however, a portfolio, a requirement from the Department of Education, is required of all students to graduate from the program.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

NSU is a great campus and school, especially for social sciences and family therapy. It is one of the top schools for the discipline. Professors know you by name and relationships are built to continue through course development, research, publication and mentorship. Transportation is not that great but there is a campus shuttle. Parking is difficult. Living both on or off campus are incredibly expensive. But the area is very amenable and has everything needed. On campus there are a lot of amenities as well. Overall, NSU is highly expensive, but often is worth it for specific disciplines that it specializes in such as family therapy, marine biology, business and several medical specialties.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Outstanding, challenging curriculum. Global health track. Very available faculty. Outstanding diversity of student body.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

After looking at the costs of other MBA programs I am truly glad that I was able to get in to NSU, I took the GMAT but found out after my admission that I did not need it with my gpa which is a plus for someone looking to save money. Last but not least I love that fact that it is a legitimate accredited MBA program that is online. Not really any cons that I can actually think of!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Being a non-traditional student hasn't been that easy. I have not had the opportunity to get to know well my classmates. Seems that graduate students are busy, most of them hold full time jobs and everyone is dealing with families and work issues. On the other hand, being able to combine campus classes and on-line classes has been great. I am very glad that when it was necessary I was able to choose the best option. The graduate program was expensive therefore, I am very worried about the future financial burden.
