Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors are helpful and always available for assistance. There are multiple opportunities to get involved with the university and other students through student organizations and student government. There are also opportunities for expanding your resume and life experience through study abroad. Admission committee looks at the person holistically and not just evaluate applicants by a test score. The rising cost of tuition and other fees.

Graduation Year: 2016

Does not include enough hands-on practical use of software programs and concentrates on theory too much. There are not enough professors to take care of all the Ph.D. students. so some have changed majors or gone for an interdisciplinary degrees. Currently not a great program, but with more professors coming in I'm sure it will improve.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The college I attend, like many others, has its share of pros and cons. It is one of America's Top 50 elite research universities so the technology is very up to date. The surrounding area allows for on to have a social life by visiting the city to see shows or sports games as well as having amusement parks and other attractions close by. However, my campus is open to the public, which I do not believe to be a bad thing, but there have been many news reports where violence and sexual abuse has occurred. In regards to the graduate program, I feel that I am being challenged by both my professors and peers to become an efficient counselor. They offer many opportunities of networking by sending out e-mails and announcements on conferences or institutes who are looking to hire newly graduated Master level students. I am happy to have been accepted to the program and look forward to learning more skills and techniques to improve my counseling abilities.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

As a non-science major I was looking to strengthen my application for medical school and test my resolve and ability to handle a science heavy regimen. I was very happy with USF's Master's in Medicine program and, when I begin medical in the fall of this year, I have no doubt that I will be more than prepared.
