Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros: that it is going to help me get the education that I need to get my degree and get a good job. There are no cons about my graduate program.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The program has three tracks for applying technology across the spectrum of learning technologies and has a host of internship possibilities in the adjacent research park.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, the graduate anthropology program provides a variety of courses to suit the archeologist, cultural anthropologist, and biological anthropologist. Faculty members are currently conducting research around the world and are able to provide insight to a student's area of interest. The decades-long excavation project at the Maya site of Caracol in Belize offers students of Mesoamerican archeology a chance to immerse themselves in valuable fieldwork and understand the mechanics of long term research. Currently, the program only offers a Masters degree, but perhaps in the future the University will be able to support a PhD track as well.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The UCF MBA program is a fantastic way for people to receive a graduate degree. However, at UCF, students are treated more like a number than a student. Some classes (at the graduate level) have over 70 people enrolled. This causes undue strain on both the students and the professors. The professors take it in stride and work hard to deliver their content. I recommend the UCF MBA program, however, if you want to feel like you want to get more from the MBA, I recommend another school.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

Being in a graduate program is already stressful as it is. I am a grad sudent and work full time but the support and the drive this school has for their student is wonderful. Always try to do their best to help the students. the con that I have is the classes on when they offer these classes. I work so taking days off is not easy especially taking care of school and others. Overall UCF's mission and their value in the grad students is what I like most here at the University of Central Florida.
3.63 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

I am going for master of engineering management in University of Central Florida and I will graduate at 2014 . I have not received any financial aid and living my life out campus with all the government loans I borrowed . I am married and living off campus in Orlando is so expensive for us. My wife is going to school too .

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

University of Central Florida is known for excellence. Students are put though rigorous and engaging classes with a huge range of topics. We are given immediate hands-on experience that is unmatched in the field of Higher Education. I moved to UCF because I knew I would not get a better Graduate experience anywhere else. The only con I have listed is that it is so far away from my home in Indiana, but the program is unmatched in all areas, including Faculty and Staff. I have already been given networking opportunities that will help me in my future career. I love the program, and the institution.

All of the faculty are very helpful, make it a very easy transition into the program. Great value for in state residents.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

UCF is a top ranked business school so I feel that the work load will be competitive and sufficient to prepare me for a career in my field. There are many available resources to help me along the way, such as supportive faculty, a writing center and several workshops. Despite these helpful tools, professors and graduate requirements often overlook the fact that students have a demanding life outside of school. For instance, I work full time and I am married. Both my job and my husband require a lot of my time and so it is hard to take advantage of the helpful services provided by the school. It is also difficult to attend the workshops or participate in student organizations. Nevertheless, the pros outweigh the cons and I look forward to furthering my education.

Just starting the program. Everyone involved with admissions and getting prepared have been great.
