Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Nova is a great school. The professors are very experienced, and knowledgeable. The only cons is that there's couple of field campus which is where I am, and some of the resources that are available at the main campus are not available to the students at my field campus.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros- My graduate program offers a range of classes and concentrations that are really tailored to the interests and passions of the students. The professors are extremely helpful and understanding concerning class or program questions. The class sizes are very small, which offers a more hands on form of learning. I also appreciate the amount of resources available to graduate students that make studying and learning easier; like the student studying center and computer lab where students can use the printer. Cons- The only real con of the graduate program is the cost. I would like to live debt free however, student loans, tuition fees, and books are very expensive causing me to stress not only over my classes but my finances. Other than that typical complaint, my graduate program facilitates my learning and is efficiently preparing me for my future.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Because I am a student with disabilities this program offered me the flexibility to complete my studies online. The counselors were extremely understanding and assisted me with accommodations for my disabilities that I did not know I could receive. A con of this program is that a couple professors were somewhat hard to contact. The lag time for a response should be addressed, as I had difficulties that needed more of a timely answer.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros about this graduate program is that it fosters an environment where students are trained by nationally renowned professionals. Training builds upon the crucial base of scientific knowledge and develops the skills necessary for professional competence in the field of psychology. The cons about the program would be the costs, this is a private university and tuition is very expensive.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The faculty members that deliver the Concentration area courses as well as the core courses are highly knowledgeable and qualified. Most are flexible and are willing to accomodate diverse viewpoints. College needs to do more however to assist students who need financial assistance. Cost of doctoral courses somewhat prohibitive.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The program at Nova Southeastern University offers great content, excellent faculty members, and exceptional curriculum and convenience. My classes have been excellent and have shown me how leadership fits into my daily life. Because of the coursework being taught at NSU, I have become a better leader, colleague, and team player.
