Florida Institute of Technology Graduate Reviews

12 reviews
I am a part of the I/O psychology graduate program. The pros: challenging curriculum, faculty treats you as equals, general spirit of collaboration. The cons: no real job experience outside of class assignments (the student-run "consulting firm" does the same 3 projects over and over); little support from faculty when you try to do external internships; statistics training is lacking.

I started at FIT for my MS in 2014; I am currently (2020) nearing completion of my PhD, but I have not been in the classroom since 2019. This review is based on my experience... it is my understanding that some of the cons I mentioned have improved.

I study Psychology at FIT, and I’m a fifth year (PhD) student. I think the program is pretty good. They seem to be in the midst of evaluating their curriculum and what is going to be most useful to students moving into the future. It’s nice to see that consideration. Lots of opportunities for collaboration with faculty and other students on pretty cool research projects.
I have been a student of FIT since 2011 and I have loved it. I found some of my teacher really loved what they were teaching and it showed when they would teach you. I especially like how many of the classes taught you real world computer examples that I was able to use right away. I had some instructors who gave some trouble, but all in all, there were a lot of good instructors. Some instructors had a prude style of teaching that helped with his or her class. This is a wonderful school to learn from and to share your ideas with your classmates. Wish they had a Phd program online for IT classes. Maybe in the future, there will more PhD classes added to the programs.
