UCLA is a great school. The only issue is that it is too large. It makes it difficult to make connections with professors or find opportunities. It's an extremely competitive school as well, and the work load can be difficult to mange for new students who don't know how to mange their time, and stay up very late

The collective experience and knowledge of the faculty was valuable for professional development purposes; the core curriculum, however, could have been more uniform and consistent.

As an incoming graduate student, the Luskin graduate program has given me a lot of support even before the school year started. During the summer, they sent me emails about internship and employment opportunities. I was able to land an interview for a non-profit before I even moved into the area! Also, the program coordinates a mentor program that pairs current graduate public policy students with new ones. I am excited for the upcoming year!

I'm enrolling in school this summer but I've visited campus many times and attended pre-orientation. From what I've seen, this is a very acadmically vibrant school and very focused in helping me in my career.

I feel very fortunate to have chosen UCLA for my Masters in Social Welfare. It is a generalist degree, but the options to focus are available.

MURP program is one of the best in the nation and being in the metropolitan city of Los Angeles provides various advantages such as easily accessible work experience and job search. Professors are eager to teach and help students pursue their interests.

UCLA is a great school, with a beautiful campus, and a well-rounded Urban Planning program. The Faculty are really accessible and it's clear that they want you to succeed. The students create a second family with each other. They are also extremely passionate about planning and creating social change. The emphasis on social equity is especially clear in UCLA's program.
