I don't have any cons for the program. It is extremely busy, but also extremely rewarding. The faculty are amazing and the material we learn is very good. We have many opportunities given to us within the program as well. We have professional development, theory-based learning, and the chance to apply the information we learn to student populations. The cohort system is also something that cannot go wrong!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the pro of my graduate program is the faculty. All of the faculty in this program are experts in this field. The amount of knowledge they have and applied gives us great insight to what it takes. The faculty cares about me and my educational goals.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is highly recognized as being a top teaching program in the Orange County area. It is challenging, versatile, dynamic, and has some of the top professors in Orange. There are various resources to help students find a job upon completion of the program and the student teaching provides a great environment for networking. Overall, a great program.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The Kineisology graduate program at Fullerton in my opinion is one of the best. For one the entire graduate department faculty is very helpful. Once I had recieved my Bachelors Degree from Fullerton they were very supportive in pushing me to apply for the Masters Program. They help guide you to your career path. They enjoy teaching and helping all the students. They encourage you to follow your dreams and that nothing is too small. I think with this degree there are huge ups and downs and it very easy to get discouraged, but when you have excellent support from your professors its easy to get back up on your feet. Our strength lab is the strength center of the West. There are not many schools where they have actually labs like our school. I have heard from many that the stuff we do at Fullerton, you won't see at other Kinesiology department. The professor also emphazise how important it is to network with the others in our graduate department. They also tell us how important it is to be really active with the program so we get the most out of it. I do not have very many cons for attending this school. Most of them would be with the issues of parking. As grad students I don't think we are at school as often as an undergrad student. Something should be done about the parking passes. Parking passes at my school cost more than my books alone. I think if I had done my undergrad at a different school before attending Fullerton for my Masters I would have more cons.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program for Physical Education is very competitive. Out of the 45 applicants that applied only 15 got into the program. Pro's to this program are that it is an amazing program. About 90% of the students who exit the program have found jobs within a year. The program is of very high value, especially for Kinesiology-Physical Education. The Con's to this program are all the additional costs. As grad students we pay different tuition fee's than the undergraduate students and on top of that fee we must also pay an additional fee to support our Master Teachers. Our Master Teachers are School Certified Teachers who help guide us through the process of becoming a teacher in our given subject. The workload and networking all come with taking this graduate program. We are expected to work on our lesson plans and student profiles every night. Along with the workload, we must also communicate with professors and other students in our cohort at the end of each week to discuss our lessons, classes and master teachers. Cal State Fullerton has a great Graduate Program.
