"The University of Miami's Rosenstiel School for Marine & Atmospheric Sciences, Master's of Professional Science is an amazing program! It gives endless flexibility to pinpoint your specific wants and needs when it comes to furthering your education, and the administrative staff is always available to help you figure out what happens next. The student body has many different interests, most of which involve being on or around the ocean, and it is always incredible to just sit, have some coffee, and hear what your peers are interested in, learning about, and doing. Given who I am, and what I want to do with my future, this is exactly where I want/need to be."

"UM is a great place to experience diversity, school spirit, and life in a community rather than completely centered on school. Miami excels in research and preparation for pre health students. We also have a great music program and plenty of student organizations to be a part of. I'd highly suggest visiting the greater Miami area and getting a feel for your fit culturally. Attending UM is much more than being at school. You are part of a very diverse and unique community. If you dislike the Miami vibe you may also dislike your time at UM."

"UM offers so many opportunities and makes it so easy to apply and get in involved with organizations and internships in your field. Course selection is dedicated to ensuring you are learning the essentials for your degree along with advice and insight into your career field. Everyone is truly there to help you and as long as you are willing to put in the work and reach out to programs, they will give you everything you need to know to gain experience and be successful. Only piece of advice would be to keep a close eye on schedules/finances just to ensure everything is correct. Do not fret if something is wrong, make a call and they will work with you to resolve the issue quickly."

"Attending the University of Miami was an amazing experience. The campus offers a variety of organizations for students to become involved in and meet new people. Whatever your interests may be, you will be sure to find an organization and individuals who think just like you. If not, then students have the power to create their own. Our university leaders are very open to student requests and meeting their needs to ensure their happiness and growth at the University of Miami. The university also holds many events and activities throughout the day from tabling in the breezeway, free food, the farmers' market, recruiting and lecture seminars, and much more. There is never a dull day on campus! Academically, the university works to foster an environment where students can receive support and prosper. Students who graduate from this institution go off to do great things with the education and experience they received at this wonderful university."

"It is a great and satisfying experience to study the bachelor in general studies. First you get to learn different subjects that will help you advance and have a more general knowledge of things, meanwhile, you get specific knowledge from your area of concentration. I chose psychological studies and education."

"School to career transition is very poor. School is good on school spirit . Education that the staff and faculty has is ok. The courses are very challenging but that is a good thing. For all the money you pay you would hope to have a decent job afterwards.not the case"

"I absolutely loved my time at the U. It's very expensive, so if you don't get in on a scholarship and your parents aren't paying, be careful because graduating with loads of student debt is no fun. You can get as good of an education at cheaper schools. But other than that I have nothing but good things to say about UM. The campus life/social atmosphere is probably the best part. I made some of my best life-long friends during my 4 years of undergrad. I highly recommend living on campus and learning to salsa dance with Salsa Craze (or joining another student organization that sparks your interest-- there are dozens to choose from!)"

"The level of competitiveness can be good and bad. Students and faculty work hard and are productive, but sometimes work-life balance is not a priority."

  • Degree: History
"Overall, this is a great program. The program focuses on helping students develop the particular skills necessary for students to truly become solid, academic historians. This includes intensive study of historiography, archival research, academic writing, and historical fields. The faculty in this department is fantastic--it's an absolutely wonderful group of highly accessible people eager to help students achieve success. The department is small, so students enjoy a significant amount of one-on-one attention often absent in larger graduate programs. In addition, this department has made a serious commitment to help students enter academia as well as other, related careers. The University's Center for the Humanities has made a commitment to help students find outside funding for their research in comprehensive, coordinated ways, and workshops are regularly offered for both academic and professional development. The issues have less to do with the program itself than they have to do with the other factors outside of it. For example, the University of Miami is located in a very expensive part of the city, and graduate housing is not offered on campus, which, in my opinion, is a grave oversight. Although the graduate stipend is generous in comparison to other programs, it still falls short of the cost of living in this metropolitan environment. Transportation around the campus itself is excellent--buses make everything very accessible, and there is even a service offered via on campus security so students can call for late-night rides. However, off-campus is another matter--public transportation in Miami is nearly nonexistent by the standards of other, similarly-sized cities. Traffic is constantly an issue here, and students who live off-campus have to pay for rather expensive parking passes in order to park in non-metered spots on campus during the school year. Thus far, issues aside, I have had an excellent experience here, and I encourage students who are interested in pursuing graduate studies in history to seriously consider an application to the University of Miami."

"The program curriculum is strong and prepares you well for pharmacy school, especially since this university is highly ranked in the medical field. However, it is still important for students to familiarize themselves with the prerequisites of the specific pharmacy school(s) they are considering."

"The pros of my graduate program are that I am working with professors that are experts in the fields of materials engineering and fracture mechanics. The biggest con is the cost of the program. The program is very expensive and the cost of living in Miami too."
