The MA Econ program in CSUEB is a very young one. We have young and energetic professors from top universities teaching here. They have the a lot of passion for their careers and students.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoy my Graduate Program. When I speak to other MSW student I find they do not have the support and emphasis on diversity training nor the small class size that I have. The only cons I have found are with my school's financial aid department and difficulties with parking and transportation.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

What of the major cons of my graduate program is the fact that its located in Hayward. I commute from Sacramento twice a week to attend graduate classes. Unfortunately, there aren't enough options through transportation for students who commute longer than average distances. However, one of the major pros to my graduate programs is the relatively smaller class size. With smaller classes, instructors are able to focus more attention on individual students.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program does not begin until March of Spring 2014, however I have attended California State University East Bay as an undergraduate student. I believe some of the best features of the Healthcare Administration graduate program is it's diversity and online classes that are offered to working professionals. Online classes are a huge benefit for me because I have worked most of my way through my college career both full and part-time. The career support at the university is great! The career center is a wonderful place to revise resumes and research employment opportunities. The professors are extremely passionate about their work and make time to be available to their students in need of extra assistance. The workload while vigorous is manageable, and the competition is motivating. On campus housing is either new or newly remodeled with a view. The biggest con to the university is the difficult access to the rest of the city, because the university in the Hayward hills. Getting to the grocery store and other places with limited transportation can be a hassle. There is a university shuttle but it only operates during specific days and hours.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that the program is diverse and that the cohort size is small. The cons are that the program is at an extension off campus, and thus you do not always feel apart of the campus as a whole.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

The program that I was admitted to is called the Pre-Health Academic Program. It is a post-bachelorette program so there is not any grants. Also, the amount of loans you receive does not cover the cost of just the tuition. Other than that, the school is amazing and over exceeded the expectations i had.
