Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2018

Nova has an excellent dental program. The quality of education, the accessibility of the faculty and the intensity of the program make students graduate as competent professional dentists. Undoubtedly, Nova Southeastern University is a great school.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

My particular program is "weekend intensive" meaning that i attend classes one weekend per month on a schedule that is as follows: Fri- 6-10 Sat 9-6 and Sun 9-5:30. There are assignments that are sometimes due between the class meeting times and of course many readings but I do like this. This gives me the in person instruction that i prefer over online while still allowing me to work full time to take care of myself financially. the class sizes are very intimate in my program and we operate within a cohort so I have the same classmates throughout the entire program. School counseling is a steadily growing field and I can tell my professors really love the field. The only thing I miss is not really getting the on campus feel and having that sense of connection to the university since classes are only one weekend a month but the education being provided is wonderful!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

This graduate program is offered fully online (except for the final practicum), which is essential for a student in my position, as our family moves internationally every 2-5 years & as a result, I cannot complete a traditional, on-campus degree. The university, however, does not have heavy name recognition & is mistakenly often lumped together with for-profit institutions,even though it is a regionally accredited non-profit school. Tuition is high, but lower than many other private schools offering similar degree programs. The curriculum is rigorous & the faculty/staff are engaged & responsive.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Nova Southeastern University has an outstanding Mental Health Counseling Program. The faculty of the program are very knowledgeable, and are true professionals. The faculty members maintain recognition, not only in an academic setting, but within the community. Faculty members are easily accessible for extra help outside of the classroom, and are willing to help students in other areas of life, apart from academia. For a Master's program, the course load was relatively moderate, but the information taught was pertinent to one gaining the clinical skills necessary to have post-graduation. The program entailed an appropriate level of clinical experience for one to have, prior to graduating in the field of counseling, in addition to the general book knowledge. Nova is a highly recognized and well-known university in South Florida, and I would highly recommend the program to anyone that is looking to pursue a career in the counseling field.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

As a private institution located in South Florida, NSU does everything they can to get their students through undergraduate and graduate studies. Affordability of living in South Florida and the expense to transport to and from campus are probably the only cons I could think of if asked. Otherwise, I can't wait to join the Optometry program! I just need a little help with expenses.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

I love the organization of the curriculum. The professors are very professional, attentive, and willing to help their students. I love the open door policy and that students are able to walk into the professors office at any point in time.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Even though it is a very intense program, you do learn a lot. The campus in SWFL is small and not crowded.There is no time for social life or family life when you are in a program. Overall it is a good investment for your future.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

Nova offers a challenging online curriculum with supportive and accessible faculty. It is a private university and the costs of the CSD program is on the high end.
