Student & Graduate Reviews

2.0 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2010

The program is good, it is difficult to get a graduate committee as faculty are often busy or un-available.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is incredibly demanding, even though it is part time. It covers a triple topic load, teaching students how to do scientific research, how to create instructional design projects and about different learning theories. The pros are you learn an incredible amount of useful information. The cons are the work load is intense, equal to full time, and can take up a significant amount of time on homework.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Will be a tough program, lots of studying, reading, writing and lots of clinical hours. Will be stressful on finances, marriage and home life. Will be great to be in the career I have worked hard to be a part of and be settled for the long haul.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

California State University Fullerton offers a competitive and affordable Master of Social Work Program. The faculty is diverse, helpful and have many years of experience that they bring to the classroom which makes student success greater than any other University.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I think that the professors are extremely knowledgeable, reliable, passionate and accessible. The cohort/relationship experiences are amazing. The workload is heavy and can be intense, but we are well supported by our peers and faculty. Some of the courses seem to be a bit irrelevant, but, for the most part I feel like I am being more than adequately prepared for my future as a counselor/therapist. I highly recommend CSUF!

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a program that requires counselors to work on their personal issues in order to be an effective counselor. This program allows you to start gaining hands on experience in your first semester.The overload can very stressful if you are not willing to open up and face your countertransference. This program allows you to work and attend evening classes. The only con is that it is not a cohort program. Overall, it is a great program!

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

CSUF is a wonderful University, it has completely surpassed my expectations and I could not be prouder of being a part of this University more. It is challenging but they give you so much support and the resources are great. It is in a great city as well so there is always something to do and everyone is just so friendly. I am incredibly happy to have elected this as my graduate school!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The Environmental Studies Graduate Program at Cal State Fullerton provides a high-quality educational experience. The program provides excellent opportunities for open-ended, multidisciplinary programs that provide good real-world value. The program utilizes highly knowledgeable professors from a wide variety of disciplines, enabling students to get a broad-based education useful for environmental conservation and policy. Students considering this program should be aware that this is a largely off-campus program, and there is little opportunity for students in the program to interact with one another outside of class. Additionally, housing in the area is high-priced and the program does not offer any of its own financial aid. Professors and program administrators are generally quite approachable and helpful. In a nutshell: this is a commuter-oriented school, but a very good one. While CSUF's undergrads may sometimes earn it poor marks, its graduates more than make up for it.
