Student & Graduate Reviews

4.8 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2000

Nova provides a face-to-face environment with the least amount of disruption to the work week as the classes take place on Saturday. The university also offers online classes, which made it possible for me to complete my master's at a much quicker pace. Also an advantage is that it offers trimesters rather than semesters. Do not be fooled, however, as the courses are equally rigorous. You will be responsible for the equal amount of content. My adviser was wonderful and was key in my obtaining my first administrative position. This degree has opened many doors for me. Excellent choice.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2020

The Instructional Design Technology and Distance Education doctoral degree is an all online degree. Very intense. Lots and reading and trying to figure out software on your own. Professors provide a lot of resources but you have to have ample time to do research and reading and learning how to used various software.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019

I will be starting this program in May, but I already have great things to say. Everyone that I have met has been beyond helpful. I am never afraid to call or email with a question and they are always answered in a timely manner. I have also heard great things about the school from many different sources, which excites me even more. Having connections with schools that have positive reviews are so important especially when trying to find a job. The professors were very nice, smart, and decimated when I met them at my interview, which will aide in being a successful student.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

The physician assistant program and Nova Southeastern University provided me with a great foundation to start my career as a PA. Although rigorous, the professors challenge students with medical knowledge and have incredible expectations. The campus is very well maintained and extremely safe. The university is flexible with parking for students that live off campus. The facilities are well kept and always provide students with a great environment for learning. I highly recommend this degree and university for all those who are considering applying!

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Nova Southeastern is one of the few schools with a graduate program in Forensic Psychology. It is also one of the only programs with the option for online studies. This is a great opportunity for students who wish to pursue their education while continuing with career and family commitments. The Forensic Psychology program is challenging and career focused. Professors are knowledgeable with both education but experience as well, which is extremely helpful. Each professor comes from a varied background, so they are able to provide unique, real life experience within the curriculum.
