Unlike the traditional degree program, a student can focus on different subjects that may enable to gather skills necessary for a variety of jobs. Within the humanities, there was a focus of study that included art, music, history and philosophy. Within public administration, there was an emphasis on public administration, public policy formulation, public finance problem solving, program development, implementation and valuation, human resources and labor relations, leadership through service to others, management strategies, and critical thinking. Within mathematics, there was a study of quantities, forms, and symbolic logic in such subjects as algebra, geometry, calculus, logic, topology, and number theory. My overall experience was online. I feel that the instructors were available and the program design was organized. My degree audit allowed me the opportunity to remain on track and take the classes needed to obtain my degree. The financial aid office was the only problem I experienced within my time at UCF. I continually had to remain on the financial aid office and have multiple follow ups regarding receiving my aid by the deadline. Otherwise my experience at UCF was rewarding and it allowed me to go to not only one of the largest colleges in the US but also graduate and become an alumni.
