"The graduate program is excellent! The professors are straight forward with all assignments and provide examples for what is expected. My personal con it that I have a 7:30am course, but I also know it is due to the fact that I registered kind of late. To be honest, there are way more pros than cons. For the Social Work program, there is a computer lab designed only for MSW students, there is a writing center that is well qualified to aid students in writing the best possible paper, there is a large variety of food choices on and around campus, the shuttle service is excellent, there is a counseling center, and plenty of outdoors space if you ever want to relax and study outside."

"There are pros and cons to everything. You just have to make the best of it. I am being challenged and look forward to gaining more experience in this field."

"The University of Central Florida has a lot to offer. Central Florida has great social justice activity, art, music, dancing, and on and on. The programs, I fear, are what you make of them though. Our field (social work) has become incredibly competitive. I was willing to go where the work was - in my case, to Alaska - but unfortunately a great deal of people in my graduating class are either unemployed or not employed in our field. So if you go to UCF, or any University really, make sure you get involved, learn lots, network, and do as many different types of things as you can!"

"I believe that while the University of Central Florida provided a good opportunity to acquire the necessary tools for my field, there were vital components that were missing during my Graduate School experience."

"The pros of my graduate program is that I will have the opportunity to get the basic training that I will need to further in my career of being a social worker. I will be surrounded by individuals who specialize in the field of social work who can better help me. I will also have the opportunity to get the hands on experience of what being a social worker entails instead of just watching. The cons of my graduate program will be my lack of financial funding to help me further my career endeavors."

"The graduate program at the University of Central Florida prepared you for the real world. The dedication to following the core competencies according to the National Association of Social Work allowed students to gain insight into the importance of a social worker."

"The MSW Program at UCF seems to be decently easy to get into (this can be taken as both a pro and a con). They do assign a lot of papers, but I enjoy writing. I do like how this program helps us find an internship!"

"The social work graduate program grants me the opportunity to help others through providing the necessary resources during these troubling times. It allows me to advise and counsel people in a positive directions teaching them how to adjust to daily living hardships. As with anything there will be a fair amount of stress which I never look forward to but it does remind me of the long-term benefit of finishing the program. In other words, stress to help me through the tests. The test academically, mentally and even physically. It is the foundation of an evolving future."

"The MSW program at UCF is challenging and very rewarding. In addition to a full course load, you also do an internship both years. The first year is your generalist internship and you work 15 hours per week with local agencies helping disadvantaged people throughout the community. The second year you do your clinical internship which requires 20 hours per week and involves working in a therapeutic setting with clients. The combination of hands on and classroom experience, while stressful, has been invaluable. The faculty are great, accessible and very supportive they really are there to help you succeed. Orlando is nice and there is a lot to do. If you are considering grad school, consider UCF, we're going to the Fiesta Bowl!"

"Mediocre MSW program. Very limited number of elective classes. Not many internship opportunities."

"The program is fast past and it sometimes hard to balance with a full time job. I would suggest maybe a weekend program since most of the classes are only in a two day span for 4 hours each."
