Student & Graduate Reviews

4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

Due to the fact that I am an online student I was unable to rate certain items in this section.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

The thing that I like about my graduate program is the ability to do the entire thing online. The thing that I did not like was not being able to take a class in an actual classroom from time to time.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

NSU is a great school and diversity blooms on campus however the school have some areas that needs improvements.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Some of the pros in my graduate program is that the students benefit from having the expertise of full-time faculty whose primary interests and expertise are in the field of school psychology. The courses are strictly taught by professors and not teacher aides of any kind. Graduate students in the program will have the opportunity to link theory to practice by observing, consulting, assessing, and intervening with children, teachers, and parents at the school's Mailman Segal Center (MSC) for Human Development. Cons, about the program would mainly be related to the costs of the program since this is a private university and they do not have many financial assistance programs.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that one of the pros is the support of the staff. They are always there to help you, whether its staying after class or coming in a few minutes before class. They are available by office appointments, phone calls and emails. The way the program is set up is also a pro. It is possible to work a full-time job while taking classes. The classes are offered at night and you start off with two classes. The cons of the graduate program would be it is expensive and the clinic is off-campus. Although it is only across the street, you still have to drive off campus to get there. I think that can be an inconvenience to those that do not have cars or live on campus. If the clinic were located on campus then you would be able to walk to it.

Degree: Law

Becoming a school that everyone wants to be apart of. Support all the way around, with a strong network, growing each and everyday.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

Studying pharmacy at Nova Southeastern university has its pros and cons. Pros: Area of south Florida is nice and full of things to do. Its close to home to those of us that are from Miami. The college is mixed in with other health professionals so we can interact with other students in other programs. Workload is manageable and many professors are caring and approachable. Cons: Overcrowded or unavailable study areas become a huge hassle around test time. Some of the faculty is not great at realizing or appreciate student's concerns. Overall it is a pleasant educational experience.

Pros: Campus is beautiful and has amazing facilities. Cons: Public transportation is not readily available.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

A pro of the graduate program at NSU is the availability of online courses. Not all students are able to work full time and also go into the classroom. It provides flexibility for us working MBA students. One con about the graduate program is the high expense. There are not many scholarships or grants offered at NSU for graduate students so most of us have to take out more student loans. It will be a great investment into our future but the added expense is a little overwhelming.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The program I think is excellent in concept. I feel that the rules for the program has been changed so many times along the way, and that sometimes there does not appear to be any clear guidelines. Faculty try very hard to make themselves available to the students, but the classes are too big for a graduate program. Perhaps the faculty should be more selective, thus allowing more time to work with the students. Also I am discouraged by the rate of graudates from the program. The program is lengthy and financial aid has its limits and in this economy there have not been alot of options for students once they max out of financial aid.
