Student & Graduate Reviews

3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

Overall, the Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology at Nova Southeastern University's Center for Psychological Studies is an amazing program. It is interesting because many of the pros of the program are also its cons, and vice versa. For example the Psy.D. program is very large compared to other Psy.D. programs. This gives students an opportunity to interact and study with a very diverse population and encourages us to advocate for ourselves if we need help from a professor or other faculty member. However, the large class size does make it difficult to get noticed and to get opportunities to work with faculty on research projects, which can foster a competitive atmosphere among students. Similarly, it is great that NSU offers courses taught by a variety of professors. The upside is that each professor has their unique teaching style which again allows for a diverse and exciting learning experience. The downside is that there are often varying standards and workloads between professors teaching the same classes. I am about to start my second year in the program and overall I am very pleased. I knew I wanted to attend NSU and in fact, it was the only graduate school that I applied to. Every school has its issues, but overall, I think the pros outweigh the cons of the Psy.D. program at NSU's Center for Psychological Studies and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to earn a Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology.

The pros of the graduate program are it provides a very good education and the professors are always accessible. The con of the graduate program is that the school is private so the tuition is a lot.

Degree: MBA

Nova Southeastern University has a great MBA program. They have been in existence for 50 years and continue to expand and grow. They have recently redesigned the program to better serve the students. The professors are available for students for questions and concerns.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I am very pleased with the flexibility and support offered by NSU. They have had some problems with their real time class meetings but have changed to a new format which will hopefully improve connect-ability.

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.
