Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is in it's first year and though there have been a few growing pains, the faculty and staff are immensely receptive to feedback and show real concern in each student's experience and success. the curriculum is challenging and appropriate.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I am looking forward to starting this program this coming week (1/5/15) and continuing to pursue my love of counseling psychology and striving to gain the LMFT & LPCC. I looked into this program not too sure how I would like it, but after meeting with many of the administration and just being on campus I felt at home and at peace. The only con I would have to say is the traffic to get to the actual campus, but if that is the only thing then I know it will be more than manageable.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the education offered to me through the program is very good; the training and network provided by faculty is exceptional. They do a very good job connecting you to different sources. I also appreciate the integration of faith by the faculty when relevant to the coursework. However, the student body is not very diverse and the surrounding area is not very interesting. There are not a lot of options for entertaining and dining is only decent.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

The grad program in English is both academically challenging and intellectually stimulating. While the workload can be quite rigorous, the course material is engaging. Professors are also extremely helpful, wanting each student to succeed academically and professionally.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I studied at CBU for my undergrad studies and decided to continue my Masters program here as well. The Christian integration is what makes this school unique and stand out. Teachers, staff, are all committed to serving there students. This school is great however it is very expensive.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program is great because it is the only one of its kind in my area. The classes are interesting and fun, while still being hard and satisfying. The only con that comes to mind is that all of the grad school classes are held in the evening, and I would prefer to take them during the day.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

A small cohort allows for greater attention from professors and and overall better learning experience in the classroom. All professors have extensive backgrounds in their field which adds to the value of your network. Faculty are also very receptive to student needs; something that is lacking in many graduate programs. A con would definitely be the lack of graduate housing which would be especially helpful as many students are commuting from distances over an hour away.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

My experience in the school counseling program at California Baptist University has been great. All of the professors who teach the classes in this program are highly qualified with a plethora of real life experience in the field. They provide great guidance to students and give support in all areas of life, not just academics. The program is small which allows for a unique class experience. With less than ten students in classes, everybody is able to participate and it ensures quality understanding for all members of the program. A lot of hours spent outside of class in public schools are encouraged and mandated to aid students in understanding what the career really entails. I am halfway through the program and I feel that the efforts I have put into the program are worth the knowledge that I have gained to be successful and effective in my future career as a school counselor.
