Student & Graduate Reviews

3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: CSUDH is a nice, clean and safe campus. All of the professors are highly knowledgable and have spent time working in occupational therapy. The cohorts are small, so you feel connected to the other students. It is a highly competitive program so everyone in your cohort is motivated to do well and help eachother succeed. There are many opportunities for fieldwork to prepare you for your first job placement. Cons: The courses are all pre-selected so you don't have a choice of what or when you take class. However, I find it less stressful because you don't have to worry about getting into classes.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2016

The accessibility of attaining resources is great, especially since this is an online program. The faculty is invested in seeing you succeed through consistent communication.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

California State Dominguez Hills is a commuter school that serves majority low income individuals that came from impoverished areas. The school while not top of the line or bustling with student life does give you a decent education for an affordable price.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

CSUDH has been labeled poorly, but it is actually a very nice and quiet school. The teachers are there because they genuinely want to be and care about the subjects they are teaching, at least in my experience in the Linguistics program. The programs at the school are generally smaller than at other CSU's, but I find that by having fewer professors and getting to know them more intimately I will have a better connection on which to fall back when I apply to a PhD program. All in all in this a great school and the facilities, such as its huge library, support the student body and promote self-motivation and research.

Very good program. You learn a lot and the professors are really knowledgeable about the field of Quality Assurance Management.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Great Instructors Cons: Department is new and is very understaff
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate school is the level of information and knowledge that I am receiving from the eduction. The cons would be a couple of the professor who are not on top of their work, and can cause students to feel confused and fearful of the workload.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I am currently enrolled in the Master of Arts in Humanities (HUX) program with California State University (DH). I love the program I am in because I can do it entirely online, and they don't rely heavily on discussion boards which I find tedious and not useful, personally. I also love the instructors-- they are very qualified for the subject matter they teach unlike some other online programs out there. I cannot give any details on the campus life, but I've heard the campus is a little rough due to the area. The costs are very reasonable as well, and the financial aid office is helpful. Overall, if you love the humanities and want to expand your education around that, then I would recommend this program.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

CSU, Dominguez Hills has been absolutely amazing to me. I have felt challenged, encouraged and supported. Like any other school there have been some cons. For example, even tho DH is mainly a commuter school there have been some instances where faculty has not been understanding that our students are not traditional graduate students but those with families, and jobs ect. However, the good outweighs the bad. When my brother passed unexpectedly the faculty worked with me. They have mentored and guided me. I love my school and am very thankful for this experience.
