Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2014

The one on one help from professors is amazing. But, the department needs to add more professors to help students with guidance. It is very difficult to find professors with enough time during their office hours and they do the best that they can but it isn't enough. The school/department needs to do a better effort of bringing on more full time professors to help.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The program offers an intern option which is a positive aspect of the program because it allows students to teacher throughout the duration of the program, making it easier to apply the knowledge they are learning directly to their workplace.

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.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

CSUDH is a very progressive and innovative university. I designed and presented my unique interdisciplinary program to the university which it was approved in 2011. It is a groundbreaking course of study with no real precedent. The pros included the ability to add something new while building on the existing educational framework. The cons included the struggle to break ground on something so new.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros is the strong cohort the program is begging to have. The education is semi affordable. The professors have great work experience they share with the students. The cons are not having a good cafeteria. The commute is ridiculous. The campus needs a lot of work. Lastly, the campus need 24hr store or library service.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

The C & I program allows you to cater to your interest. There are many choices to explore (e.g. language arts, adult ed, special ed, math and science curriculum development). However, the instructors are too few and overworked making it VERY difficult to even set up a counseling or registration appt. I had to push and fight for meetings and phone appts as well as take complete charge of my own progress. About 65% of my instructors were highly competent, inspirational, and a joy to learn from.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The coursework has so far been mediocre. I do not feel I am learning anything significant for my academic goals. The staff in the Financial Aid office and Humanities department are very short in conversation, and often interrupt to answer a question, though the question has not fully been asked and thus their answer is often not sufficient. One advisor told me that she would not help me off from the "ledge" when I had become so upset over their inability to communicate between departments that I had began to cry. I was forced to be the middle man between departments, having to explain what each wanted the other to know- instead of contacting each other directly. The faculty do not provide sufficient feedback and in general return assignments very late, causing future due assignments to have be written without constructive feedback. There are no other regionally accredited Universities in the States that offer this particular degree online and therefore I am "stuck" with this program.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

The occupational therapy program is very nicely structured. It makes it easier for students to apply knowledge learned in the clinic and also builds a network for the future. The professors are highly motivated and are eager to learn about each and every student. The program focuses both on individualism as well as collaboration and team work which will really benefit the student in the long run. The area may not be great, however, it is a small price to pay for the high quality of education you receive in the program itself.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

My program is definitely in which I can apply the skills of counseling readily. This Pupil Personnel Services Credential Program at CSUDH truly prepares its students for direct work in the counseling field.
