Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2010

Quality classes with teachers that were in or had been administrators in the past. They knew what information was needed to get and hold the admin positions.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Some pros is that it teaches the programs and curriculum from different perspectives. Cons are the inability of program being flexible for part time students.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Faculty and staff are really friendly and willing to help. Experienced students in the educational field bring up good discussion in classes. Sometimes the class material is not as relevant to the class objectives as much as they should. Assignments are sometimes too vague and have little guidelines. Overall a good program, be willing to make a time commitment with this program because the readings can be long.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

They are continuous improvers. Great school andI'm very excited about getting more involved. Pros - faculty involvement. MBA program is very interested in bettering the students and working with them. Look above and beyond in getting students involved. Cons - class schedule changing. The class schedule changes so its a but hard to plan ahead. But they work with you anyway.

I like how they go above and beyond to accomodate the graduate students and make sure that we are getting what we need when we need it. Easily accessible for any questions and comments.

Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program at CSUB is AACSB acredited which is awesome and important. It is easy to communicate with faculty and staff and the program seems well thought out and possibly easier since the classes are quarterly based instead of semesters. If you follow the program closely you can be done in a year and a half!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Its a great school as far as the friendliness and small class sizes are concerned. The professors are always there to help in times of need and give advice. The cons include the vastly hot weather, the poor ranking of the program on U.S. news report and therefore lesser recognition when applying for a job to local agencies and organizations.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program has offered me many insightful courses that have provided me with opportunities to grow as an individual. I have become even more multicultural sensitive and am more capable of discerning when a situation is being mishandled. The program has also provided me with a close-knit cohort; the individuals in my program are all striving to better students' lives in one way or another and it clearly shows through their passion and commitment. Unfortunately, I would have to say that the workload is less than I had expected, the use of technology is virtually nonexistent, and the overall competitiveness is pretty low. Through both my efforts and those of my professors, though, I have learned quite a bit about working with students in a university/college setting.
