Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2014

Great school with a lot diversity and academic support.
1.63 out of 5.0
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that there is not a support system for my program because there is no cohort. Also, there is a very competitive atmosphere and the financial aid department gives incorrect information. However, the program classes are really good and the faculty have a lot to offer within the classroom.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I obtained my bachelors degree from CSUF, and had the best experience with attending the school of nursing. I am currently a semester in to my part-time masters program and I could not be more delighted with my experience so far. A specific pro is, the flexibility with the design of the on-line program. A specific con, is the difficulty with working in on-line groups.
2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

The master in accounting program of CSU Fullerton is most prestigious among CSU campuses. However, the program requires more prerequisite classes, which postpone my graduation date.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

This was an excellent program because of the cost relative to other Public Health programs. In addition, the faculty and other students are extremely supportive and easy to work with. With regards to cons or potential negatives, I wished there were more specialty tracks to choose from such as Epidemiology.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

The Program for the Masters in Social Work is excellent. They provide a comfortable environment where students feel supportive, encouraged, and motivated. The program provides personal attention to each student and advisement. The course are relevant and effective. The professors and faculty are professional and approachable. They prepare us for future work and ethical professionalism. A small program with elite outcomes!
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I love this grad program! It is, I believe, to be one of the best programs a grad student can do especially if you want to work in the public sector. The support staff gives you in making your career successful and your education beneficial is beyond words. However, the only downside is the fact that it can get a little expensive but not as expensive as other programs. Also, 2 of the professors I've had, have not been the greatest and may need to be replaced by better professors. All in all, I would recommend this program to anyone trying to find a good grad program and career. You learn a lot and it really prepares you for a future in the public and private sector.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I really appreciate the faculty. They are very supportive and they really want you to succeed.
4.63 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program allows me to take several classes online. Professors encourage critical thinking and give practical advice and teaching strategies. However, professors give an overload of weekly required reading from the textbooks. Reading articles, watching videos, and completing fieldwork is more interesting than reading the textbooks.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

The professors are top notch and the program is perfect for those going back to Grad school and work at the same time. The majority of their graduate classes are held at a time that someone working during the day can attend.
