Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2008

UCF has a lot of strengths but the humanities, the arts, and philosophy are not among them. There are some fine faculty in these departments but overall I would not recommend attending UCF if these are your interests. (Also, please consider that my review is based on attending from 2004-2008)

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2013

The University of Central Florida is an outstanding institution to come to, network, have fun, and get an education. The psychology degree program has plenty to offer and jobs can be found around the greater Orlando and Tampa area after completion of work. There's internships, labs, and many more things you can do in order to be successful enough to learn and get into a nice Master's degree program and Doctorate's. I can't really say much but UCF has everything any student would need. It's big, there's food places on campus, hair shop, and just it's an all around city!

Degree: Legal Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2013

The college program is great for those continuing on to Law School. However, I am an older student, returning to school trying to become a paralegal and almost a year after school, I still cannot get a job because everyone wants experience. I cannot afford an unpaid internship for 5 years all offices expect for experience as I have a family to support. Young students - get yourself involved early in an internship.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

I did Direct Connect, a program where if you are accepted to UCF from the local Junior College, you enter in as a junior. Classes were offered at the same junior college for UCF as there are UCF campuses sharing the junior college campus. Some of the students are very involved. I was not able to be as involved because I worked daytime hours and could only attend evening courses. Most instructors were able to communicate with on a regular basis and even when I was having trouble, the professors worked with me. Though tuition was a little pricy, overall the school is great. I plan on returning!

Degree: Political Science and Government, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe this degree is very important in identifying patterns of domestic and international issues, and helping shape the political minds of tomorrow that will be implementing and executing plans to solve real-world problems. The International Relations track was very useful in that it requires two additional terms of a foreign language that I found to be very helpful in not only language barrier break-down, but also to understand the way that other societies interpret information via their language building style.

Degree: Education, General
Graduation Year: 2013

UCF Rocks!!! I enjoyed the education that I received at UCF. I have two Degrees from UCF. I am going to go back to get another. The staff, teachers and administrators are helpful, enriching and helped in anyway that they could with my educational experience. I recommend UCF to anyone who asked me where I attended and tell them what are great educational experience that anyone can get.

Degree: Environmental Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The campus is more like a mini town and has everything someone needs, whether living on or off-campus. Along with having such a large campus, comes with a large student body and some rather large classes. It is suggested to sit up front whenever possible to avoid distractions. With class sizes of 200, there will definitely be distractions. There are plenty of computers on campus and always a quite place to study. A major issue with having so many students is the parking, which they are trying to resolve with building more parking garages but be mindful of this and show up on campus with plenty of time to find a parking spot (first week of a semester, at least 30 minutes before class). For the degrees, they focus on a broad learning schedule and provide an array of restricted electives to personalize the program to students particular interests and career choices. Environmental is not a large program, at least not as covered as other state universities but the science and engineering programs are great here. There are many opportunities for internships with the extensive amount of businesses in the area. If anything, this campus is very well placed for networking with potential employers.

Degree: Hospitality Administration/Management, General
Graduation Year: 2014

This University has a lot to offer, but it isn't easy to work with at all. Everyone that you will look to to answer your questions will have skewed answers which makes it very difficult to know whether you are on the correct track or not.

Degree: Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The criminal justice master's program (online) offers flexibility with the courses to be able to attend part time while working full time. Study what you need for the program and the classes needed for the CJ program are usually open. If you decide to take electives from the Public Administration program, research what classes are open to other majors.
