Cal Baptist University, Riverside is truly a devoted school. They are devoted to creating an environment of kindness, empathy, and awesome education. The professors I had at this school are definition of being people of God, they are women of strength (I have only had two women professors). Everyone I have spoken to at Cal Baptist has had awesome character and a smile on their face. Not only would you be around great people but also have a degree from a Godly University.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

California Baptist University offers many online Master's programs. I chose Organizational Leadership because it applies to my field and the program can be completed in 3 semesters (1 year). All professors either have their doctorate degrees or are working towards them, so I felt confident as a student knowing that my professors were experts in their respective fields.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

It was a very nice campus. A small D2 school. A lot of activities for undergraduate students not so much for graduate students. Small library, but a lot of parts of the campus is expanding

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2018

I love the board for the Athletic Training program here at CBU. They are very helpful and easily accessible. I loved how welcoming everyone at the program upon my arrival has been. I am very excited that I chose CBU as my graduate school! It just feels like I am home. There are definitely too many pros to list them all. But, the school has a beautiful campus, its close to the beach, has a large amount of sports teams, and job opportunities in the area. The only con is that California is expensive. But luckily the staff at CBU is great and will do all that they can to provide you with as much information as possible on how to fund your schooling. They make that process very simple. It is very easy to get in touch with faculty and professors to help you with financial aid. Upon acceptance you are given a large amount of information on this also. I can not say anything bad about the program. If you choose CBU you won't regret it!

3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently enrolled in the MAOL program online. I have received all of the support needed in order to be successful while in the program.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

One major pro with my current graduate program is that fact that I will not have a problem finding a job. The faculty has mentioned this several times which gives me hope. A con of the program is that financial aid does not cover all the tuition each semester. Every semester I will have to either borrow money or pay out of my own pocket. Money is my biggest concern on top of school work. Having to borrow even more money every semester is causing stress. Something that we don't think of often is how stress can affect our health in the long run.
