Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I am currently attending Antioch University Los Angeles towards a path of becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am so glad that I have chosen this school for my master's degree. The program is vigorous and hands-on, with a focus on applied work rather than only research. This is important to me because one needs to practice a lot and develop good skills if you want to become an effective therapist. The school provides all the tools and learning opportunities one could wish for. Also, the faculty is extremely knowledgable and supportive, which makes all the difference. I am grateful and cannot wait to truly turn this wonderful learning experience into a career.

This university is very open-minded, tends to think outside of the box, and is very helpful in learning clinical tools that may be utilized in the field.

Antioch is an enriching and unique learning environment. The LA campus is rather small, but the opportunities are endless. They have a great staff and supportive faculty members. I highly recommend Antioch for those who have a desire in pursing a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology.

I have been to both Antioch, Santa Barbara and Antioch, Los Angeles. Antioch, Los Angeles has extremely interesting courses and there instructors leave you very engaged and eager to learn more. I am very pleased with the education that I am receiving.

Very diverse in both students and faculty. Faculty is extremely helpful and accessible. They also work one on one with you to help plan your classes. Accelerated program available.

Degree: Psychology

Pros: flexible schedule suitable for working professional. Curriculum is current and fully acceptable by the licensing board. Modern campus and access to computer lab and other student services. Convenient parking. Cons: Radical liberal agenda takes precedent over even-handedness. Faculty members are very busy and not always available for out-of-class questioning. No career placement.

It is a very expensive program, but I would say that the quality of education that we are getting is worth it. We experience a different system of learning. It is not all about grades, but rather your academic progress to YOUR personal goals.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: an extremely diverse, open program with top-notch faculty (writers) who are generally easily accessible. Cons: the finances! Residencies require hotel stays if you are not from the area (and in my case plane fare), and the school's scholarships are limited, small and not well-publicized. The cost of the school is no more than other grad programs, but none are cheap. I would also have enjoyed a bit more-academic courses in the past; one or two residency seminars that become term-long classes would be super.

Antioch University is a place where I truly developed as a healer and practitioner. I look to start at PsyD program in 2014 and feel that Antioch gave me the knowledge I need to compete on a high academic level.

What I love: the diversity of students is excellent. We come from all walks of life and experience, and Antioch makes an effort to include all kinds of people in the program. As a lesbian, it is one of the few places I've found where the ratio of straight to gay seems just about even. I love working with the mentors, too; for most of them, I don't get the sense that they'd rather be just working on their own stuff and teaching is just to pay the bills. The feedback is extremely insightful, but the mentors I've worked with don't hold their opinions as gospel. The focus on issues of social justice is also highly appealing - this is not a school to come to if you are conservative politically and socially. For me, this is a really nice change of pace and one I enjoy. The biggest two drawbacks for me with Antioch are the financial burden and the lack of student housing. Because the program is low-residency, many students live elsewhere and get to school by one mode of transportation or another. But the school has no dorms, and no place to put students up. Some local hotels have special discounts to accommodate students, and you may be able to find a peer who lives nearby and is willing to offer you a place to stay, but otherwise, the housing issue can be quite a problem. Worse than that is the lack of financial aid that is not in the form of loans. Many traditional grad schools offer fellowships and things in lieu of tuition; Antioch LA doesn't have anything even remotely like that (you can't even assist a mentor for reduced tuition) and the school-based scholarships are very few and far between, and many include the undergrads as well, so competition is intense. There are no scholarships that cover all school expenses, let alone transportation. You either need to be wealthy or married with a nice savings account, win a lot of outside scholarships or add to your undergrad loan. I must say if I had thought about this more carefully early on, I might not have chosen to come for financial reasons. It's quite a burden.
