Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

A great program, but the state has cut so much funding and the department is absolutely bleeding resources. The university has made it very hard to get a competitive social science degree.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Florida provides excellent training in Sociology at the graduate level. There are a variety of faculty specializations and the funding options are competitive, making study here both rigorous and affordable.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

Academic and Social Environment is valuable. You find chance to have support from other faculty members. UF ABE Department has an active graduate and undergraduate student groups. Professional development and social and service groups have launched recently and doing great job!

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2015

Strong department with strong researchers and mentors. As with other departments, competition for funding is fierce. This department should look to limit acceptance in the future to ensure those who are accepted into the program have better financial support.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The program provides excellent clinical and research opportunities as well as supportive faculty. However, classes are taken over all four years in the program which seems a bit unnecessary. Also, the qualifying exam should be modified to be more beneficial to students' learning and eventual licensure as professional psychologists.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

This is my first semester of my PhD so there is still a lot of resources for me to familiarize myself with and get to know faculty and students to help with issues that may arise. One thing that is a large downside to this program is that even as TA/RA's we are responsible for school fees that were over $700 this semester. This should be waived for graduate students because we do not require the same use of facilities as undergraduates do.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2019

My adviser really makes my graduate program. He's invested in his students and makes sure we're competitive. He spends hours one-on-one with us every day- I've learned more from him in a few months than I learned in my entire undergraduate career.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

UF's Religion Dept. is academically stimulating, professionally inspiring, and on an exciting trajectory in the fields of religion and nature, religion in the Americas, and religions of Asia.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: friendly people Cons: Not much help figuring out what grad life actually is if you have no idea. Not enough focus on ecology
