The University of West Florida Reviews
I did an online MBA. The Staff is helpful, the program has an independent counselor call and checks on my progress and mental well being every semester. The workload is very tough if you go full time, even for the online program. I had to go half time so that I did not become overwhelmed by the amount of work to do. The instruction is great, the pace is fast, but not unreasonable. I recommend trying it, but if you work and need to do it at night online, be aware, it is a full MBA course, it is designed for people who attend class, and have no other commitments, that is why I had to slow down to half time, and it was still a lot of very late nights, due to the amount of work needed in a short amount of time.
Absolutely appreciated the opportunity to study at thito school. There were great schools in my area that taught engineering programs,, but I needed to go back to school, work and had little time to commute to and from school. This was one of the first colleges offering a convenient yet regionally accredited degree program. I ably wish there was more direction from the school after graduation because I was lost and did not utilize my degree to its potential. I am not blaming the school, but all colleges and universities have a unique position to have the workforce pulse and share its knowledge with graduates to help these students solidify a success career.
I absolutely loved this program and would highly recommend University of West Florida for a Master's Degree! The course work was meaningful and prepared me for state certification exams. My academic advisor, professors, and all other staff were caring, timely, and helpful. I was able to accelerate the program to graduate early, but received thoughtful advisement and encouragement from my advisor. The materials and books that I purchased as a part of my studies were very relevant, good investments. I opted for the 100% online program, which very closely mirrors other public state University Ed Leadership programs, but at a fraction of the price! Even though my classes were exclusively online, the class platform, use of emails, discussion boards, and live collaborative sessions kept me engaged.
UWF is a decent school. It's near Pensacola Beach, so it's fun to attend. They've really started focusing on business/science/medicine degree programs as well as on their sports program in the past few years, so it's not the best school for humanities majors.
