Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I am pursuing a Master of Arts in Humanities in the Humanites External Degree (HUX) Program. I love the program for several reasons. First, it is extremely affordable for the quality of the program. The school is a four-year accredited university and the coursework is challenging. Second, the entire degree program can be done online or even by postal mail (!) You don't even need a computer, only a reliable mailing address anywhere in the world. Third, the faculty is diverse, fully qualified, and responsive. This is a real Master's degree from a real school that you can get from the comfort of your living room, while structuring your study schedule around work and home life. Great for working adults and/or parents. You can concentrate in one of five disciplines or take an interdisciplinary approach. You must love to read and write!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I am an online MBA student so I'm basing my comments purely on my experience with online technology, virtual interaction with classmates, and my virtual interaction with my professors. In most instances thus far I have not had any problem with communication between my classmates for group assignments which are quite frequent in a Business degree. There has been great teamwork and collaboration despite not physically working together. Professors are in all instances very responsive and clear in their expectations for the course. I have had only one instance where a professor wasn't clear in his instruction and a lot of the links required for the assignments did not work as needed to get the assignment done on time. Overall, I think the opportunities at Dominguez Hills for graduate studies is a positive experience and I've noticed they are offering more and more on campus courses which would add to the learning experience. I would recommend this program to anybody because I think the workload is manageable and the technology available to online students is adequate to get the job done.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I love my professors. They are engaging and passionate about the work they do. They staff of my program has been very helpful in terms of helping me get financial aid. I am not used to the campus. I went to CSU Long Beach previously, so the social culture on this campus is still foreign to me.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

I like my graduate school because it is online and it allows me to keep working fulltime. It is a great online community and faculty is supportive.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe the teaching credential program at my school is a great place for aspiring teachers to learn about and practice the art of teaching. In this program, students are being taught by people who have many years of experience in the same field and are passionate about the teaching profession. There are many counselors available to help students figure out exactly what their career goals are. This program also offers an entire class that focuses on classroom management. I believe my school is the only school whose credential program has such a class. Even though there are many great things about the program, I wish there were more financial aid options for students.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Student/faculty ratio and convenience of location close to home and affordability Cons: Service hours
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2015

My other options for graduate school were superficially more prestigious than CSUDH, but once I got into the program and began working with my professors, I realized that they were highly intelligent, informed, and in love with their subject. The TESOL program here has a very high focus on linguistics and pedagogy. What you receive is sort of a double concentration, though that is not to say that either is less focused. Rather, the rigors of the program are increased by a multifaceted approach to language as a whole. I am very happy to have chosen this school. If other programs outside of their English department are anywhere near as good then it is a solid choice for many graduates.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The nursing program at CSUDH offers its students lots of support and a diverse range of experiences.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2010

The pros were that I was able to work on my classes at my own convenience. I had other responsibilities, so working online allowed for me to choose what my schedule would be. Making it less stressful worrying about making it to class on time. The cons were that I did not really get to have the on campus experience. I joined one club and was able to make a few friends, though I rarely went. But overall, it was a great program. Wasn't too easy or too difficult. It still challenged me. And I believe I learned a lot.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Diversity, great staff, excellent education overall, affordable compared to other universities, great professional opportunities including workshops and employer/internship fairs. Cons: Rather small campus, diminishing resources, increasing tuition, weak greek system.
