Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros : excellent faculty, students friendly, beautiful campus. Cons : very high tuition fee for international students.
3.83 out of 5.0
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.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I am enjoying the program and think they have made it a very comprehensive set of classes and events.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: opportunity to have it online and in class Cons: not given enough time to cover all required material
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

I absolutely love the school of pharmacy at USF. I think the curriculum and professors are amazing. Everyone wants to see you excel and do your best. The faculty and staff are always available to assist you when needed. The only complaint I have is regarding the surrounding neighborhood, however, that is outside of the university's control. The university actually warns new students about certain areas when shopping for apartments, which I found extremely helpful since I was completely relocating to a different city with no friends and family.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

I absolutely love the pharmacy program and the professors at University of South Florida. The only con I have is the area surrounding the campus, but that is out of their control.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

Some of the cons of the program include the vast size of the college and the inability to find all classes offered on campus. A lot of classes were only offered online which could be a problem for some students who do not learn well on their own. The pros include the ability of the professors and advisors to be able to meet with you and help you decide your plan of study. There were many opportunities to meet people and get involved as well.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I am enjoying the Career and Technical Education graduate program. I am learning demographical information such as poverty, dropout rates, and how the two correlate. I like the fact that this program is providing me with knowledge and critical analysis that will allow me to make a direct impact to the education system.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The cost of tuition is lower compared to other MBA programs, especially for in state students. The surrounding area is not the greatest, but the campus is very nice and large with a lot to do on campus.
