Although new to the program, I value the accessibility to the faculty and staff. The programs in the school of Health and Public Affairs are competitive, and provide an abundancy of networking opportunities and access to community stakeholders.

I went to UCF for my undergraduate program and was excited to stay for graduate school to earn my Masters Degree. UCF offers many opportunities for students to be successful and Orlando is a fun city in which to live.

I don't feel as though a part-time MSW program is effective. Electives are not offered regularly, to fit the part-time students' schedules. In the second year students still need to quit or alter their professional job to fit the needs of the program's field experience.

The University of Central Florida does a fantastic job at making college life affordable and accessible. They also make deciding on a degree program very easy through counselors and specialized aides. UCF's social work program if very fulfilling and a worthwhile degree plan!

I am in the dual degree masters program at UCF. I am getting two degrees in the time that it takes many graduate students to get one. The value is incredible.

This is a clinical program which focuses mostly on field work and experience, which is a strength.

The small class sizes lend themselves to an intellectual understanding beyond just surface material. Each student is expected to take a central role in their own educational process.

The graduate certificate I am going to be receiving is all online... which is a pro and a con in itself. It is wonderful that I can do it online and access my school work from any city and without having to sit down in traditional classes, but actually going to classes and networking in person was a huge plus of my undergraduate experience.
