Student & Graduate Reviews

3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is particular is very small and its fairly easy to get to know your teachers and the program director on a personal level. The coursework was fair and I was satisfied with the curriculum. With all that being said, their online program is pretty inflexible. They only have about 10- 15 courses each semester and they are start at 6 pm on week nights (with the exception of the same 3 classes every semester that start a bit later). This means that you need to be logged in on a computer at that time several times a week. For the average working professional this schedule doesn't work very well. However, they don't care and they don't try to work with you. Unfortunately, they don't share any of this with you during orientation. If you're okay with this style of learning then it is a cool program however if you're looking for a truly online/independent feel, this program isn't it.

Full-time mother of two doing a masters program. It's difficult but manageable. I feel like I'm getting what I need from the program as well.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

I am studying Management Information Systems with concentrations in Information Security and Human Computer Interaction. I have been impressed so far with my professors knowledge of the subjects and willingness to help students succeed. Already two courses in and I have been able to apply my education to various sectors at work, something I have not experienced before. NOVA's administration is awesome and really works to ensure students are in the correct program. In fact I made a wrong choice on my program choice and realized the mistake right before the withdrawal period for class. NOVA's advisors worked with me to get out of the program, refund all my money and get me set into the right program and now I couldn't feel more successful.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

As a student who is new to online education, Nova provides many resources to help students get comfortable navigating courses online, like trainings. The professors make themselves available because they understand everyone's busy schedule. It is very supportive and informative.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

This is an amazing program in a fantastic area. The professors and everyone involved with the program wants all of their students to succeed and be happy with the work they are able to experience and accomplish with the help of and throughout this program. There is so much diversity and you get to meet so many different kinds of people; it is very rewarding!

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Nova's Marriage and Family Therapy Master's program changed my life. Leaving a public school and entering a private one had a massive impact on my wallet. However, the office of financial aid always has someone ready and willing to help you with your finances or simply put your mind at ease. You can find recent graduates woven throughout the faculty, as well as star-studded professionals within the field. It is an honor not only to learn from these individuals, but also have the opportunity to work alongside them! One of the best aspects about this program is their commitment to students. More than once weekly, the department sends e-mail alerts with job opportunities, reminders, and even general upcoming events related to the field. Professors are genuinely concerned for the academic AND emotional well-being of their students. They constantly offer personal experiences, what they learned from them, and how emerging professionals can make different, better choices. The balance between research and clinical work expected within the program helps to ensure well-rounded and informed therapists, who actually have solid experience under their belts. All in all, my experience in the Master's program directly impacted my decision to apply for the PhD program. After turning down a significant scholarship for another program, I chose Nova instead—confident that I will be shaped into the best possible professional I can be.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Pro's Nova Southeastern University is a very good University I obtained my Bachelors in nursing through them and now I will get my Master's in Nurse Practitioner. I so far have no Con's.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2016

The online MSHRM program works well in balancing full-time work and full-time studying. Professors are extremely helpful in answering questions and ensuring that students learn the material well. Only con I can think of is the quality of student work at times. It could be because it's a graduate program and I expect to see more, but sometimes group projects can be a nightmare.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2020

Nova Southeastern University has great qualitities. For the most part the faculty is very helpful, but there are some courses that are extremely disorganized. The great thing about my program is that it provides a bridge from the Master's program into the actual dental school on campus.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Nova Southeastern University has a rigorous Family Nurse Practitioner program designed to challenge prospective candidates. It is designed to assist students in progressing at a graduate level in treating people throughout the life cycle. The con of the program is the travel time to the West Palm campus as it is a must in this particular program.
