Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The location and atmosphere were nice. Most professors are willing to work with students to make the best of their college experience. Personally, the general classes were a bit dull but at FAU, students get what they pay for. My overall experience at the school was good.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The Social Work program at FAU did an amazing job at preparing me to work with diverse populations. In our classes, we covered information of a multitude of cultures, socioeconomic classes, differing sexualities, and vulnerable communities. Teachers gave us real life examples from their experience and painted a very thorough picture of what the profession was like. I graduated the program feeling confident and ready.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Florida Atlantic University was a great school to attend. The teachers were helpful whenever I needed them. The academic advisers knew their job well and were able to get me into the classes I needed so that I can complete my degree. Even with my moving across the country and back again, they kept me on track to graduate.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

Receiving a degree in Information Technology has been a good decision. Yet, this degree alone has not been enough to secure gainful employment. It has acted as a "support" to other education, such as an MBA or a Doctorate. Reason is that many IT companies require at least working knowledge in programming or databases. An IT degree is more geared from management rather than computer science. A more marketable skill would have been in computer science or computer engineering. Yet a student needs to have at least some knowledge or interest in programming, computers, math or engineering in order to be accepted into and succeeding in the computer science field. Computer science is a more difficult program of study than Information systems. Yet the potential to securing gainful employment and making twice as much in income would be worth the time and effort for a student majoring in computer science, programming or databases. An IT degree would be a good compliment to another masters degree such as an MBA or Management.

Degree: Neuroscience
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida Atlantic University was a wonderful school. I feel that although not all of the professors in the school were perfect, majority were aimed at helping us to succeed and achieving our goals. The degree I received required very rigorous courses, but overall helped me to better prepare for the future.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2018

FAU is an amazing school, with so many available resources for students to succeed. The main goal of the professors and fellow classmates is success not only in the present but in the future. A lot of students commute to school so parking is the most difficult part of the day sometimes. Classrooms are fairly large until you get to your upper division classes, but teachers are always available for one on one support.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

FAU is a well rounded institution. With the course work provided I believe I was fully prepared to enter the real world. FAU had a pretty open door policy. Instructors and administrators were always available to answer any concerns. They also walked with you every step of the way. I was recently accepted to their Masters program, and couldn't be happier to be going back to my Alma Mater.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2009

I completed my undergraduate studies in Accounting at Florida Atlantic University and loved it so much when I thought about returning to do my Masters degree 8 years later I knew I would it with FAU. The teachers are very knowledgeable with their subjects and there is a diversity of the students attending. They encourage group projects and networking with other students and constantly post career opportunities. After I completed my bachelor degree with FAU, I received a 5% raise with my company and soon thereafter was able to get a promotion due to my experience and my education.
