Student & Graduate Reviews

3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Cal State Fullerton along with Kaiser Permanente's Nurse Anesthesia Program leads the country in quality. The knowledge and qualifications of the directors, professors, and instructors are second to none!
3.17 out of 5.0

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is competitive and has a good reputation within the social work community. The teachers really strive to help the students achieve success. There is a heavy workload but it is fair for the graduate level. I am currently in the 3 year program with evening classes. It is difficult to work full time and balance the program in year 2 and 3 due the the16 hour weekly internship required of the program.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I have research the graduate programs that I am interested in and ultimately, CSUF was the only program that I was interested in and stood out for me that offered a concentration in Human Resources. A pro for is that it is only 10 minutes away from my work and I plan on working my regular 50+ hours a week while attending CSUF. The only con is the location of the school, there is just too much traffic, but of course I don't expect less from California.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The graduate program is challenging, yet especially rewarding if students give it their all.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2013

Pro: It's online! I can study and do assignments when I find time in my busy life. I can take the time to compose answers/responses as opposed to being put on the spot in a classroom. Con: Sometimes it is difficult to do group projects/assignments through an online program, as people are not as available as they could be. Communicating can be challenging sometimes. If the professors are good, the program is great and you learn a lot!
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

The Mihaylo School of Business and Economics is challenging, diversified, and overall an excellent post-graduate education! The workload is challenging as I work full-time, so a moderate work-life balance is essential.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

The history program provides a Oral and Public History Track where one can specifically study Public History and prepare themselves to become public historians. To earn this degree, one must complete an internship in the field. However, if one does follow this option, they do not complete a thesis, which may be beneficial later on in one's career as well.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the program is the availability of night classes. The cons are that the classes offer every semmester are limited and that can lead to graduation delay. Another con is that they are very few scholarships available and you need to really look for them because no one tells you about them.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The School of Nursing Graduate programs seem to always been changing which can be quite frustrating to students who try to plan a course of action and is met with last minute changes. I feel the organization among faculty members could use some improvement. Faculty staff is very supportive and are there to ensure you succeed in obtaining your goals.
