  • Degree: Elementary Education
"Professors are very interested in assuring students get the most from their education, at least in the Elementary Education program. The program offers not only the degree but Reading and ESOL endorsements (they are integrated into the program). Additionally, the staff works with students to build minors and certificates onto the major, often using major courses for minor course requirements. Great school for Elementary Education!"

  • Degree: Chemistry
"Chemistry, being one of the smaller majors has a great selection of courses and professors. The class sizes are reasonable after organic chemistry II and the teachers want the best. The school overall is decent, the housing department is horrible, financial aid is iffy at best, stick with your department advisors for the best experience."

"UCF is an amazing school with a lot of future opportunities. I attend Rosen college of hospitality and it's awesome! They provide a lot of help when it comes to getting jobs and helping students. I am thankful to say that they will make sure every student graduates with a job."

"The UCF experience was great. The psychology program is very good and there are a ton of opportunities to conduct research or work in a lab. The campus is very large and can be difficult to navigate at first. If you do not have a car or know how to skateboard, you will need a bike. Overall amazing school, professors, and program! Large library, tons of places to study, and friendly environment. The only downside is the large class sizes!"

"As I embarked on a lifelong career, I enjoyed the experiences at UCF. This journey wasn't easy but it was all worth it at the end of my tedious journey. I had great professors, peers, and UCF workers that help me as well as instilling in me the knowledge that I can use throughout my career."

"UCF truly stands for Opportunity. Get involved right away with whatever your heart desires; SGA, Greek Life, Student Orgs, Internships, and more. I did it all and it made my time worthwhile. Talk with professors, use career services and I guarantee you will have a career when you walk the stage as I did. Don't let anything pass you by and never give up."

"The University of Central Florida quickly became my home away from home. What first drew me to the campus was diversity - diversity in students and diversity in experiences. Graduation day quickly came, but I will forever and proudly be a knight."

"The reason I chose the Clinical Psychology program at UCF was because of the individualized attention I have already received from the professors and upperclassmen. I came 1500 miles for this program, which leads me to a con. The university needs to provide a relocation program for their out of state graduate students."

"UCF's program is one of the top ranked programs in the country and has a great brand. This program will not steer you in the wrong direction and will make you very knowledgeable and competitive after graduation."

"I have now attended Graduate School at the University of Central Florida for two semesters and it has exceeded my expectations. This interdisciplinary program in Cognitive Sciences is not offered at other Universities and I drive two and a half hours to attend classes. The class content has been cutting edge, and the exposure to the research has been very educational. The faculty, staff, classroom environment and overall culture present a very high educational standard. I would highly recommend this University and program to students. I already have a Master of Science degree and this has enhanced my educational, clinical and professional skills. The only negative is the availability of parking on campus."

"It is a valuable program. The professors seem to be knowledgeable, caring, and passionate. The only complaint I would have it that the school doesn't seem to cater very well to graduate students who are also working professionals."

"My undergraduate degree was much more difficult. The course work is very light at UCF, even in the graduate program and with a more than full-time load. i am also working over 40 hours per week, and i'm able to manage just fine. Overall, not very difficult."

"The department is incredibly helpful and there is not a single faculty member who is unfriendly. The community is fantastic and the connections available are staggering. This program, though at a "lesser known" university for the discipline, offers a great way to write a strong thesis and establish necessary connections to get into a solid PhD program."

"The program prepares any student to succeed in the field of counseling as well as covers all requirements for licensure in the field. The only con that I found was that out of state tuition was quite expensive. I would recommend the counseling program at UCF to any interested student."
