Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel one definite pro for the Hospitality Management Graduate program is that the professors are really invested in helping their students pursue a career in the area that interests them. Student to professor ratio is great with classes from 10-15 students. The network at Cal Poly Pomona is also very good. The school puts on networking events to help their students connect with alumni in the industry they want to pursue. One con that I have found so far is that the majority of my program is made up of International students. Domestic students are definitely the minority.

This is essentially an independent program, you will take classes with mostly undergraduates as graduate classes are rarely offered. The meat of the program is statistics and research methodology. The best part about this program is that you really can design your own degree based on your career goals. Get started on your thesis research early and try to go in with a plan... You have to find your own committee but this University provides excellent resources to get it done. Just be ready to buy some of your own supplies too.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Highly ranked based on the competitive nature and affordability. Also the hands on experiences add value to your degree compared to other schools which are theory based. Cons: The College of Environmental Design building is small, and it hosts three different programs, minimizing accessibility to the building resources.

The pros of the Hosipitality Management Program at Cal Poly Pomona are the professors and networking. The professors are really committed to helping you get a career in the field that you want to go in. There are many alumni from Cal Poly in high positions which makes the networking of the program very good. The only con I have found so far for the program is that the diversity of the students is low. I would like to see a more diverse population of students.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my current graduate program, which in in cellular and molecular biology, reach far and wide. We face a these committee that is set up in an identical fashion to the of a PhD program ,which I feel prepares us for our net steps. Our mentors and professors are normally easily available and quite understanding, and our research is largely left up to us. I feel that they allow us to truly become "real" scientists while guiding us along the way. However, the school has a limited number of graduate courses due to budget cuts and the technology is becoming quickly outdated. The inability to take course I would be extremely interested due to budget cuts is offensive to me as a student, and I feel I should have access to up-to-date technology to truly prepare me for my next steps.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel the professors are easily accessible through office hours and spend time after class explaining topics from the lecture. The drive is not the easiest when commuting though.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

The program was good in the sense the professors reequired you to take initiative for your own learning. I got pleanty of experience lecturing others on the material that I was suppose to be learning. A con is that I felt that I did not get much guidance in developing my thesis so that I could complete the program. At one point, professers were saying that they could no longet take on anymore thesis projects because they were already involved with too many others. But, I probably should have taken it upon myself to seek more guidance in my thesis. Any program is going to be what you make of it

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Area is very diverse in order to study Landscape Architecture. A very 'hands-on' program. Many field trips offered but travel is difficult around the L.A. area.
