Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

UCF is mostly an undergraduate state university and the graduate programs are not take into account mostly. I believe that they should take care of grad students better than before.

UCF offers a variety of opportunities during and after their time at the university. There is a wide variety of classes available to graduate students and the professors are world-renowned and excellent teachers. Graduate students are very well supported financially.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

Conservation Biology PSM Program: Pros are the course materials being interesting and pertinent to the field, professors are helpful and vested in your future success, and the biology student groups are active and friendly. Cons are the lack of and frequency of classes being offered, little support for internship pursuits, and newness of program can make administration decision difficult (course registration, selection of board).

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

UCF is fast improving. The university is always investing in research, which is beneficial to everyone involved in the university. The surrounding area, however, is not the greatest. Crosswalks at the entrances of the university are quite dangerous and there’s quite a bit of crime in the city around the campus. The career support seems to be meant for students who’ve never had a job. It would be beneficial to see some more/better networking for students who already have a job in their industry, and are looking for more of a challenge.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Great, knowledgable professors who have experience in the field of counseling. Hands on training through practicum experience on campus. Cons: Practicum is a bit unorganized, running groups for prac lacked guidance, doc students sometimes teach important classes.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Higher Education and Student Affairs gives you the opportunity to learn how to apply theory to the development of students on a multitude of campuses. The program emphasizes experiential learning and gaining experience in many facets of the field however, if you are planning to attend classes part time, you will not have the same experiences.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Its a great program for getting into the healthcare management field. Healthcare management is an up and coming field, especially in a state like Florida where healthcare is readily needed. For being a relatively young program there still is room for improvement, but the quality is still great.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

This graduate program is work intensive, but it's not very intellectually demanding in comparison to my bachelors in pure mathematics. This could go either way, but I consider it a con. It should be noted that this may not necessarily be an attribute of the program as delivered by my school, but instead inherent to educational degrees in general. Nonetheless the content is valuable and practical, and this is most certainly a pro, but its delivery and assessment differs with the teachers, as with any discipline. However, given the natural subjectivity associated with education, there will actually be greater degree of variability than you might encounter with math or science. Overall, I'm satisfied with the teachers, the courses, and the structure of the program as offered by my school.
