Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
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.
3.92 out of 5.0
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.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The program that I was expected into is highly regarded as a one of the leading places to receive my Master's degree from. The teaching staff is very knowledgeable in the area of exercise physiology. They help you with any and every problem that may occur. They do everything possible help the students professionally. If you need help finding funding or jobs, they will help.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros to my graduate program is that it offers a variety of professional careers in which I can choose to utilize it upon graduation. The greatest con thus far is the limited amount of courses and times offered to meet my schedule needs.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

One of the biggest pros of this program is that it's geared toward working professionals. The classes are set days and times, twice a week, in the evening. Another pro is that it is offered on the regional campuses of UCF. If I had to drive over an hour to and from school twice a week or take mostly online classes to get a Masters degree, I would've never pursued this degree. A con of this program would be the quality of laptops provided to the students. For a $40,000 program, it seems they could've spent a little more money for higher quality laptops that would last through the program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The social work graduate program grants me the opportunity to help others through providing the necessary resources during these troubling times. It allows me to advise and counsel people in a positive directions teaching them how to adjust to daily living hardships. As with anything there will be a fair amount of stress which I never look forward to but it does remind me of the long-term benefit of finishing the program. In other words, stress to help me through the tests. The test academically, mentally and even physically. It is the foundation of an evolving future.
