Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The Master's in Educational Leadership at Nova Southeastern University is a wonderful program that prepares professionals in the field of education to become leaders in the field of education. Students take courses from professors who have first-hand experience as educational leaders. This is one of the perks of the program because students are learning from and networking with educational leaders who can potentially be their colleagues one day. The program is effective in offering flexible delivery methods such as blended and online while making sure that students learn essential content by offering courses like management of schools and ethical school leadership. When students graduate from the Master's of Educational Leadership they are prepared to positively impact the world of education.

My time at Nova was a rewarding experience. I learned so much and met so many amazing people. My professors were extremely knowledgeable and always willing to go the extra mile to help me succeed. I would recommend Nova to anyone interested in pursuing higher education.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Great online program for MHC students. The flexibility of the program was one of the things that drew me the most. You are able to take your classes on your own time. Professors are very knowledgeable and are easily accessible. Classes are small so there is a lot of personalization.

I love my graduate program because of the specialized attention and support that I receive from the professors. It is conducted in a very professional environment, and there are numerous opportunities for us to grow as mental health counselors.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Being completely new to the graduate school "scene", I came into Nova's program with a blank slate as far as what I would need to do, who I would need to see, and how an undergraduate program would compare. After just a few weeks of part-time attendance, I feel much more comfortable on the campus and with the overall environment and I have to give credit to the staff for their constant updates, quick email responses and ability to answer any and all questions I have on a regular basis. The cost is definitely on the high end, but in the end, I am very happy with my decision to have joined their community.

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.
