Student & Graduate Reviews

3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I believe that CSUF has a great graduate program for Computer Science majors. The teachers are enthusiastic and always available. The classrooms are smaller, which allows for greater and more personal interaction. Because the school is not as large as other universities there's not as huge of a campus life. However, the personal interactions that the students receive from their professors as opposed to larger universities with 300+ students per class is invaluable.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

The History department at California State University Fullerton is an incredibly tight-knit and compassionate department filled with the most brilliant professors and passionate students, there is absolutely nowhere else I would study history. The only cons I could find are a lack of computer availability on campus and the difficulty with campus parking. I have no complaints about the department or graduate program thus far.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Due to being a graduate program that only meets once or twice a week in the evenings, there is a lack of support from office personnel and consistency from the faculty. I think that course such as Fieldwork will be best if one professor can be assigned to it for the duration of the program (6months) for better support and consistency.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

There is a great community formed by the students in the graduate program. All of the graduate students that have been here before me have provided a lot of guidance and great advice. The school provides us with important technology such as new mac computers, relatively up to date lab machinery, and access to a stock room which carries many things needed to carry out experiments. The faculty is easily accessible and if they are in their office they will usually help you with any issues on the spot. The network that you gain by studying under one of the lab PI's here is one of the most important perks of studying here. The heads of the labs are so well connected and not just in one or two countries.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The best part about the Masters in Education with a concentration in Secondary Education is that the program is completely online! I am able to teach full time and still take classes part time.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros include outstanding faculty, caring students, challenging coursework, excellent academic approach. The cons are the workload.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

I've enjoyed campus so for. Only challenge is traffic getting to campus and parking. This is a commuter college but also has plenty of rentals near campus.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2017

An online program fits my needs best. There were no additional prerequisites for the program other than having my BA and I liked that.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are that the program is very strong. There are great professors. Faculty and staff are all well-experienced and knowledgeable. The cons are that graduate studies are so expensive. There is no financial aid offered besides loans. I am still paying off my undergrad loans.
1.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This online only program is small but mighty. It is very rigorous at times and be prepared for a reasonably large workload. You will spend large amounts of money because cost of living is high in the safe and nice neighborhoods of Fullerton. Campus Safety is a high priority, which I appreciate. There are occasional e-mails on local opportunities by faculty and peers. For the most part, everyone in Orange County is very friendly and extremely diverse. Parking is free on the weekends if you want to go on-campus and study. The graduates of this program seem to be given many great opportunities.
