Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The Program that I have applied for is an MSA in CyberSecurity. In light of the recent attacks on our nations security, I feel the call to be there, to work alongside the professionals, battling for our nations right for freedom, through keeping our most sensitive information secure. The University of West Florida, provided me the opportunity to do so. I am happy to soon be apart of those protecting America.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pro is the professors are very knowledgeable about their profession, however in regard to the internship part, I have some concern that I will not be as ready for the workforce as I could be.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

The online graduate classes are convenient for students with full time jobs. I know my assignments for the week and can easily adjust my schedule to coincide with deadlines. I enjoy the interaction with other students in the forums. I am very pleased and have no "cons" to speak of.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2018

The work for this program has been challenging, but rewarding. The faculty have been helpful and willing to work with students to ensure success. It does seem to take some time however to get information from other staff members.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

UWF is a wonderful school for those who wish to do the Educational Leadership degree completely online. The teachers are knowledgeable and the classes truly prepare you for taking the FELE at the end. I would recommend this school for anyone who desires a degree in Ed Leadership at an affordable price.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Social Work from the Univeristy of West Florida. I recieved my undergraduate degree there and love the campus. It is a smaller school, so staying in contact with professors is easier. Everything that I need for course work in one building. We even have our own library in our building. Although I love my campus, it is extremely competitive for grants and scholarships. I do not have nay financial aid at this time so paying for course has become quiet hard. Getting a scholarship would very much help in paying for tuition.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

First off, I received my undergraduate degree from here as well, so I really enjoy the school and the area. The courses were very manageable, I have mainly been part-time. There is a lack of funding for stipends beyond being a teacher's assistant, although my understanding is that they are attempting to fix this issue.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors in my program have done a really great job of making me feel like a student in a classroom, even though my classes have been virtual. We engage in online discussions about our topics, can meet up on the weekends for study sessions or just to socialize and - best of all - can do your coursework when it's most convenient. As is often the downside with virtual classes, you can miss out on the opportunity to ask questions of the professor while topics are being taught, lose out on valuable relationships with peers, and - if you don't have a lot of personal motivation - it can be harder than being a traditional student where you have a traditional class format that motivates through peer pressure.
