Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

One great aspect about the counseling graduate program is the programs inclusion of a course that allows future counselors to practice counseling with student clients, before starting their training at a counseling center. However, the quality of instructors is not as great as it should be, however, I would said that so far 90% of the instructors I have had have been great mentors and role models. They treat students like colleagues, which makes the whole learning process much more effective and encourages future counselors to continue with the program.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The location is great, close to the mountains and great camping. Also, the housing is very inexpensive in the area. The biggest con is the communication in the department.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The education Fresno State provides is top notch. The Physical Therapy program is currently ranked #8 in California. The program is very competitive and more affordable than most others in the country. The unique learning opportunities that Fresno State provides better prepare its graduates for the work place. The work load is intense, but the faculty is great at finding ways to make sure everyone is able to learn and apply the material.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors are very helpful. They're available for graduate students through email, texts, and meeting one on one. On the other hand, buying textbooks are extremely expensive and there are lots of reading for each classes.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

Faculty is active in research and available to students. Surrounding area has everything, but it is a city so you want to be careful where you chose to live.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: I love the fact that I am doing things to immediately better my skills as a future physical therapist . I appreciate the fact that the professors are always available when I need them and that they truly do want us to succeed. Cons: the full and rigorous workload makes the program stressful at times, but that's what to expect from a doctor program. No time for part time job in my opinion.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2016

For me, this is a great place to be because I have a support system (friends, job, family, familiarity with the city), but I'm sure for the students who come from other places it is really hard to find social activities and the public transportation isn't accessible.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I love Fresno State's Department of Physical Therapy program as it is very competitive and supportive of our career. The faculty and staff are very challenging but ensure we are ready to take the next steps of becoming a successful physical therapist. Although the workload can be overwhelming at times, our class helps each other out and make sure we have a social life. I am happy to be a part of this great graduate program!

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The Physical Therapy Doctorate program at Fresno State is exceptional. The faculty are truly invested in the students' experience and learning. Fresno as a city is affordable and there are many housing options within close vicinity of campus. The campus is generally safe.
