Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of this program is the flexibility of choosing courses that allow the student to come to class every other week or every week. Also the e-mail blasts for internships, jobs, and volunteer oppurtunities were helpful. The only con I see with the program is not arranging enough networking oppurtunities for students.

Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2014

Pro: Small Class Sizes, night classes allow you to hold a job while perusing program. Con: Some students don't rise to the graduate school level, which lowers quality of class discussions

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

It is an excellent program with lots of outside support introduced to the graduates. The professors have practical experience that helps explain the theories.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Took this program online. The workload was not too bad, but I wasn't really impressed with the discussion board feedback from fellow classmates. It was obvious a lot of people did not really do the work. The professors were so-so. Most of them take a while to get to students, some never get back to students. This can be a real problem when the entire class is online and you live 8 hours from campus - stopping by a professor's office to discuss questions is not an option! So the professors' lack of communication became a problem for a lot of students.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2012

Since I did my graduate degree in History, it gave me a great opportunity to improve my research and writing skills. The negative part was that the degree is not that much in demand and its really hard to find any jobs.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

Cal State East Bay University is a great school for all students of all backgrounds. Students who attend Cal State East Bay, graduate with understanding and confidence in their field of study. The faculty members are supportive and knowledgeable. I am just beginning graduate school at Cal State East Bay and have found the faculty and students to be culturally and academically knowledgeable. I'm majoring in Education at this University because I believe that they have the tools and the right set of faculty members to guide me in the process of becoming a highly qualified elementary school teacher in the Bay Area.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2014

CSU East Bay is a great institution of higher learning. I am pursuing a graduate degree so that I may expand my horizon and grow in the field I have been working in since I completed my Bachelors degree. My particular program is geared towards those who work full time and I am vey happy with the flexibility of our class schedule as it is very accommodating for my needs.

My program is all online, so some of those didnt apply to me. I like to easy of being able to complete a grad program while working full time. The admin in the rec office are very nice and friendly and willing to help and answer any questions.
