Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros of the program are various. One is being able to work as a licensed therapist either in private practice or for the government. Cons is the financial burden and the costs.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

Its a tough program and worth the effort to get the graduate classes I need. Sometimes the professors are a little overwhelmed so getting in to meet with them is hard to do.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The fact that many of the graduate professors have actual business experience is a huge plus in my eyes because they can bring real world experience and apply it to the concepts we are learning in class. I also like how dedicated the school is to improving their business program and how the school eventually wants to be a top B-School graduate program in the United States. Furthermore, the fact they are always on the cutting edge of business for example they just recently implemented the Business Analytic concentration, which is suppose to a new upcoming job sector within the business world. The last aspect of the program I am impressed by is the amount of companies they get to come on campus to recruit or talk about the industry. On the negative side I wish there was more alumni involvement with attempting to get recent graduates a good job especially since there are thousands of business alumni within the southern California region. I also wish the program would would somehow cost less that it does.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program so far as been an eye opener, somewhat intense and competitive. It is part-time offering time to work as well. This is only my first semester so I have just dipped my toes in. The staff has been very helpful in the process and has open availability to discuss any and all concerns.

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: A small physics department with a few very high quality professors leads to working close with a skilled professional. The graduate adviser works closely with the students and gives each one career and professional advice invaluable to future success. Classes can be challenging and informative. Cons: Higher cost of living in the surrounding area makes it difficult to live near the school without extra income beyond what working as a T.A. provides. A small department size means limited graduate classes each semester.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The teachers are all very knowledgeable and are there to help you with any questions or issues that you may have. The assignments that are given help you learn about yourself as well as the community around you. Every assignment that I have completed thus far has been beneficial. This graduate program is on the California State Fullerton Irvine campus. The parking is easily accessible, and there are on campus police.
