Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I am a graduate student at Antioch University Los Angeles, pursuing my Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology. My goal is to obtain a Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) license. Aside from degrees or licensing, what I really want is to just help people. As an undergraduate, I studied communications and somehow found myself working in advertising. It was a fast-paced and demanding job that I found deeply unfulfilling. As I began to rise in the ranks, gaining some form of success in that career, I could sense that somehow I was in the wrong place. But I had no clear direction where to go. One day, frustrated and exhausted, I began to seek a new path for myself. Eventually, I found myself to Antioch. I was truly terrified of changing course and direction so abruptly. I remember sitting at the orientation last fall thinking over and over again to myself if I was making the right decision. I decided to take the leap. Almost a year later, I have grown more than I could have ever imagined. It's not so much that I have learned more about myself; but rather that I've come to understand myself in a new way. Sigmund Freud said, "Out of your vulnerabilities comes your strength." Never before did I believe that my vulnerabilities could serve me in my life path. I always had thought they were weaknesses to hide, not strengths I could utilize and celebrate. Antioch offers fascinating courses, brilliant professors, and an impressive reputation. But more than anything, this school has an intangible quality that goes beyond accolade or reputation. It has transformed the way I see myself. Its my personal belief that the human experience can be reduced to two basic desires: to love and to be loved. I believe all beings are born with these basic inclinations. Along the way, life experiences often divert us from these most pure intentions. Through my work as a therapist, I hope to help my clients find their way back to self, and overcome their barriers to building authentic connections with their loved ones and in their chosen communities. Thank you.

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
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Psychology

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.
