Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

Love my co-horts and professors . The program that I attended set me up for success. Fresno State graduates in the Bay Area are thriving in the clinical therapy field. I will highly recommend Fresno State marriage and family counseling program to people.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

I attended California State University, Fresno, (CSUF) to pursue my Masters degree in Social Work. The instructors were inspiring, supportive, and they encouraged me to rise beyond my own expectations. The campus has multiple resources to assist graduate students on their writing, research, and brainstorming. The students at CSUF were diverse and it was a beautiful experience to collaborate with people from different walks of life. The Master's program was challenging, but the students and some staff that you build a bond with worrying over your homework assignments, deadlines and internships becomes your life long connections, supporters, and motivation. The friendships that I have developed through my Master degree programs are the friends that I still cherish; they challenge me to take risks, remind me to always self care, and to never settle for less. Life is full of great opportunities, but only if you take the initial step to pursue it.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

I am a current graduate student at CSU, Fresno. My experience so far has been very good. The faculty members are very helpful. The curriculum is also very good. But, not many classes are offered to choose from. Research opportunites are abundant. Student will get to choose their project or desgn it themselves. It all depends on which faculty member they are working with.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

One of the most beneficial aspects of being a part of a graduate program is that you are allowed to have a higher understanding of the field in which you desire to be a part. Although, with this new understanding and intelligence, it may disallow you from thinking at the level at which a patient learns.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The Pros: Friendly people in the program with excellent teachers that genuinely care for the students academic success. The Cons: It will be nice to have more interaction with the teachers, financial aid help can improve and more school spirit should be implemented for Grad students as well as traveling abroad opportunities.

Graduation Year: 2017

I love the staff and enjoy the school's overall program.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

My program was online so some of the areas don't really apply to my review. My graduate program so far has been a good experience. I have experienced issues with financial aid however the school has a grant that I was able to get. It is specifically for Deaf Ed majors. It has been very helpful with my educational costs as well as being able to work full-time. I have only had two issues with my graduate program that have come up. The first issue is that I wanted to do a project however my dept doesn't do projects. The other issue I had was money for student teaching. For some reason I didn't get financial aid for this semester so I had to take a semester off and save money. I am still slightly short however I am hopeful to save enough by next semester.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe that Fresno State offers a well rounded program for School Counselors. The pros consist of the small number of students within the program. You are able to get to know your fellow colleagues and utilize each other for support and study groups. You also have easy access to professors because of the small number within the program. The cons consist of several things: most staff are part time and put their "day job" ahead of the graduate program and the students, they are not easily accessible and sometimes I feel like we get the short end of the stick. Also, within the counseling department "School Counselors" are not the programs top priority. Time is invested largely into the Marriage and Family Therapy program and once again School Counseling K-12 gets the lease attention. There are also very few professors who have ever experienced working High/Middle/Elementary school level students in a counseling setting. Overall I am getting the proper knowledge to do the job when the program is complete, but I do feel this program has room for improvement to better train and equip future school counselors.
