Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Florida Atlantic University is an incredible university. It is not too big, yet not too small. The stadium is unreal and the tailgates are too. The main campus is in sunny Boca Raton. Truthfully, the city itself gives you enough adventure and inspiration. The majority of the working population are young executives ready to help. There are many internship opportunities and high-paying jobs for full-time students at FAU. The professors will work with you to succeed. The city is expensive, but you get what you pay for-- unprecedented opportunities.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

I graduated in 2013 from Florida Atlantic University with a BAC in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. I completed one year of a masters program at FaU in clinical mental health counseling where I worked as a graduate assistant at the office for students with disabilities. I feel this experience helped prepare me for the workforce, opened my eyes to cultural sensitivity in the work place, was a very rewarding opportunity, and helped me network with professionals in the field.

I attended the Harriet Wilkes Honors college. I would recommend this school, the professors are wonderful. The classes are small and the other students are very helpful. Because it is such a small school, all the student know each other and it really feels like a community.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended Florida Atlantic University for my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and this summer I will be returning as a Graduate student to work on my Master's degree in Educational Psychology. Returning to FAU for Grad school required no second thought- I knew that I could rely on FAU to provide the same level of stellar education I received in my undergrad time. FAU has an incredible variety of dedicated, and intelligent professors, true professionals who love their chosen field of research (cognitive, social, developmental psychologists), and their craft as teachers. The FAU professors that I had the pleasure of learning and working with inspired me to pursue a career path in Educational Psychology. Their passion, motivation, and encouragement serve to fortify the very spinal fabric that allows FAU to continue to excel in the world of higher education. FAU is spectacular if you are looking for a challenge, to achieve individual and career growth, and for an overall amazing college experience.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I was a dual major in college, and when I compare the quality of the two colleges I belonged to, I would choose the English department hands down. They have a variety of professors, but more times than not you'll find one or two professors you'll stick too, especially they teach your required courses. The psychology department is problematic, though classes are sometimes large and you'll probably be taught by a teaching assistant, that's fine and expected. The problem is when the majority of the courses are taught by teaching assistants. Professors of the behavioral department were a rare sight, I suppose this was because they were focused more on their experiments. I never had the chance to connect with my psychology professors the way I connected with my English professors.
