Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2019

Nova definitely has great online programs that allow you to manage your time wisely while simultaneously having enough courtesy to understand life happens. They are super friendly and helpful also. When I first applied, they reached to me via text and email to see if I needed anything. Just as well, the staff from the department sent me some links for graduate school scholarships that I'd qualify for to help reduce the cost of education. I've never heard of such a thing. I think that gesture when well above and beyond, and honestly, definitely made me feel like I chose the right institution.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Nova Southeastern University is a great school to attend for graduate studies. Faculty and staff are very helpful and go above and beyond to ensure that all your needs are met as a student. The program I completed, Masters of Science in Psychology, has greatly assisted me in advancing in the field. I received multiple job offers once I added the education to my resume. Nova Southeastern University is a school that is recognized by most employers in my region.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Nova Southeastern University is one of the best schools I have ever been to. Although I do not physically attend the school, the counselors and teachers are very patient and helpful. I am taking my courses online because I am currently working at the Department of Human Services in Greenville, MS. I am trying to further my education by receiving a degree in Exceptional Student Education. The staff at NOVA have been helping me every step of the way and I really appreciate them.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This year, I will be acquiring my Educational Specialist degree from Nova Southeastern University with a major in Teaching and Learning, while focusing on Elementary Education. Nova has influenced my approach to teach by my post-secondary education and real-world experiences with learners of the technological age. Throughout my studies at Nova Southeastern University, I apply a broad range of research-based instructional and cognitive strategies that has demonstrated high achievement. Through my teaching experience thus far, I have found the multitude of strategies and method to facilitating rather than dictating to be a higher beneficial style of instruction. I have learned that if students use critical thinking skills and construct their learning experiences they will not only retain information longer, but they will also become more confident in their abilities. Being devoted to this assertion confirms that I have made the right career choice for myself. I love working with children and will continue to be a positive influence in their life.

Degree: MBA in Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2018

I believe that the education I received from NSU was not equal to the amount of money that I paid for the degree. Classes were done solely online and instructors were often not as tech savvy as you would expect for this type of learning. Instructor knowledge varied but the university offered very little in terms of support while attending. The university has done nothing to make me have pride in the school. I plan to continue to earn my degree but I will not consider myself an alum of this institution. I believe a better education can be found elsewhere at a better value.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

Nova Southeastern University is a school that is innovative. They carry a number of their programs online while still having programs at their main campus. This is wonderful for students like me who work full time. I need flexibility in my education because I work full time and the program I am in, as well as the teachers, support me because they know my schedule. All staff and offices are very responsive because of the nature of the program. They provide in depth information in all communications and make themselves available for phone calls or even video calls. A great school to work with!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2005

I successfully completed the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at Nova Southeastern University in 2005. The program offered professors with real world experience and a curriculum that was right on track. We had a combination of appropriate courses that challenged us, along with independent and group work. I am still connected and friendly with many of the professors and students. I thoroughly enjoyed the program and feel it made a huge impact on my career path. After twelve years of work experience, I am now pursuing a Master of Fine Arts (MFA - Interior Design) degree at the New York School of Interior Design. The MFA will teach me design skills and the MBA has taught me the business skills I need to operate a design business successfully. My combined work experience and education has given me a strong foundation and will allow me to exceed my clients expectations.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Nova Southeastern University is a good school if pursuing a Master's in Marine Biology because you can enter the program without a major advisor. This university allows you to explore your options before deciding whether you would like to complete a thesis or a capstone and what you specifically would like to study. However, because you have the opportunity to take classes before starting to work on your thesis or capstone it is difficult to graduate in just two years.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2019

Nova Southeastern University has been a wonderful graduate program so far. The website is extremely easy to navigate and provides all of the information that I have looked for. My program is completely online, so all of my classes have been through Blackboard. I used Blackboard in my undergraduate degree as well, and have been thoroughly impressed with its ease of use both times. For my Masters of Health Science I have had to have academic advising before every time we register for classes, which is extremely helpful in learning what to expect from each class. It is also wonderful to be able to speak with the dean of the college so frequently, it gives the program a very personal feel. To this point the course load has been acceptable, and the price of books/etc. is very manageable. My only complaint would be that some of their informational pieces are not up to date, although I have been told that they are in the process of doing this. Overall I am extremely satisfied with my experience and would recommend my program to anyone that was interested in obtaining a Masters of Health Science.
