Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

College is a great environment to learn and explore in. Students that attend college should take full advantage of the opportunities that are available to them and appreciate the support they receive. College will help prepare them for the workforce and those that utilize as many aspects of college life as they can will find the best career paths outside of college.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2010

It was a great program, and I was able to complete it online. It would be better if there were more instructors that taught online, but I think it was still pretty new to be offering online courses.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2013

CSUEB was a great school. I took classes online, and was able to take them on my time. I finished my degree in over two years, and it has worked out wonderfully for me

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2007

I think the school itself is good. There are some really good professors who have working experience in real world. But some don't. So they can only teach you the business theory and you just have to try it out to see if it works for you or not. Besides, I think there is lack of diversity in the school

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2012

Cal State East Bay (CSUEB) is an affordable alternative to private colleges for both undergraduate and graduate degrees. In fact, I was allowed to enroll in graduate courses while in the final semester of my BA. I highly recommend this college for those on a budget, and who enjoy a diverse student body. As an older student, there was also a greater presence of mature students as well. Not only that, but I obtained a job at the CSUEB Writing Center, which prepared me for my eventual profession as a Concordia University English Professor. Furthermore, some of my CSUEB mentors' remain my good friends today. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my collegiate experience at CSUEB, which led to a satisfying career..

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2012

I attended Cal State University, East Bay (CSUEB) for the following degrees: a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies, an Adult Ed Teaching Credential, and a Master of Arts in English. CSUEB provided me an excellent education for far less expense than at a private university. In fact, the total price of all three degrees at CSUEB is less than one undergraduate degree at a private college. Not only that, but I am now working as a college instructor due to the wonderful, cost-effective education I received at CSUEB.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2010

This program was excellent for a working student. The faculty were knowledgeable and developed strong relationships with all students in the program. Although the course work was not too demanding, the program provided adequate knowledge for the field. The practicum was the best part of the program, as students are able to work as trainees and get first-hand experience and excellent supervision. My only wish is that we were required to record counseling sessions and get more direct feedback, however I felt prepared to work in the field when I graduated the program and now am a licensed MFT and clinical supervisor.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2011

I entered into the Masters program with no previous experience and the counseling program took me in nurtured me and prepared me for a career in counseling. The faculty members are supportive and accommodating, flexible and nurturing. The classroom work was fulfilling and enriching. Understanding the concepts were easy because of the clear concrete models and principals. I am a better counselor because of my education and training through CSU

Degree: MBA in International Business
Graduation Year: 2017

The MBA in Global Innovation is a great opportunity to learn the core MBA subjects while also having the flexibility of developing unique business ideas and opportunities within Silicon Valley. The focus on innovation comes from an independent core project and guided travel to study international business. The quality of professors is outstanding and course work is vigorous and rewarding. The student mix is very diversified, both in industry background and age.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I felt that I had a lot of opportunities at my college to explore areas of my discipline. My university allowed me to get into research and expand my knowledge
