Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of Uf's graduate program is that the opportunities it consists of are limitless. In knowing the completion of a degree will follow through with a career is satisfying. The cons of the program have not yet been realized due to not having started the program yet.

UF's College of Education is very focused on the individual and provides a very personable experience. However,financial aid is not easy to come by.

As a design student (landscape architecture), you'll have to be prepared for extra fees for lab and studio use, but overall the tuition is very affordable compared to other schools. During the first year, the tuition is around $4000 per semester, and then for the next two years of the program it jumps up to $6000-8000 per semester, accounting for an increase in graduate credits. The studios are very spacious and airy with an outdoor, sunny patio included. My studiomates, especially , are every helpful and social, but how each studio course interacts varies widely on the dynamics of the group as a whole. The professors are very knowledgeable but again, there are wide variations in personalities and teaching skill.

The program is great, however half the classes were not taught by Doctors in the field. This bothered me.

The biggest pro about this program is that it is all online which allows me to continue teaching while I attend school. I take my classes at night and on weekends. Another pro is that the classes are 8 weeks long and you take only one at a time. So each semester you take 2 classes but you are taking just one at a time. The biggest con is there school email and student login. It is very confusing and not user friendly at all!

Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Florida College of Medicine offers the best clinical and medical research programs in the state of Florida and has a very competitive tuition in comparison to the majority of mid-tier medical programs.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Extremely rigorous as my university goes by the + and - scale, meaning in order to get an A in the course you must get a 94% or above which is difficult in an upper level graduate studies course. Getting a B in a course counts as a 3.0 GPA while a B- is considered a "C" as the GPA is 2.67. As you can see, this makes it academically competitive between students. The surrounding area is really nice, social life is ranked top in the nation, and the school's use of technology is superb. As far as cons, UF is notorious for not being a safe campus, I usually get "UF Alerts" of how someone is being robbed or in the process. Just by looking at the media press that UF gets yearly is enough to say how it is. However, it doesn't deter you as a student as the quality of education your getting with the price your paying makes it a public Ivy League school of the South. Not to mention we excel in sports especially football as well as all realms of the arts, sciences, and technology. UF is definitely a great school overall and I wouldn't have changed it even if I got a full ride to an Ivy League school.

Graduation Year: 2014

While the faculty and department staff members are amazing along with the quality of the education. I didn't score social life high strictly because my major takes up a large portion of my time (Interior Design). Also the financial aid department does little to help you even when you are in their office.

The program content and professors were extremely beneficial for me. However, the workload was not what I expected for a Masters-level program, and I could have been better prepared for jobs.
