I highly recommend the MBA program at UCF to anyone who is looking for a top quality, accelerated degree.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The Counselor Education program at UCF is currently rated the number nine program in the country! It is such an incredible honor to be a part of this program. The faculty and students are all there for each other and want to see everyone succeed. This is not a competitive program; it is a program where you feel as though people care about you. Many programs only teach you from the textbook and you are never able to put that into practice, but this program is different. The experience you receive in the Community Counseling Clinic on UCF campus as well as the school internship is invaluable. I cannot say enough good things about the School Counseling program at UCF!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The Doctor of Nursing Practice program offers students a variety of clinical experiences by requiring us to attend numerous clinical sites during our proram. This allows students to see different patient populations and associated morbidities. Our program is in it's infancy however and still growing so we have bumps in the road from time to time.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Everything has been great so far I have had much experience with my faculty and accessibility to them is great as well. Workload is a bit much but I know it is worth it considering this is the #9 rated program in the country.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

My boss is a graduate of this program and said it is exemplary. I have done research on the program and have found that it aligns with what I am currently doing as a Counselor at a community college in the area.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The UCF Counselor Education/Marriage and Family Therapy program is definitely a leader in the CACREP and counseling field. There are several opportunities to network and boost your clinical and research-related skills. If I were to list any cons, it would be the number of students in certain classes and a couple of the faculty members that contribute to negative experiences. Overall, the program is excellent and definitely deserves to be top-rated!

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: UCF is considered as a pretty good engineering school in Florida. The professors are close to the students and the classes are not too big (about 7-15 students) Cons: it is a little expensive if you have to pay out state tuition (my case)
