Student & Graduate Reviews

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

In regards to the Nutritional Science Master's program, I believe CSU Long Beach provided a quality education. All instructors were very knowledgeable, passionate, and dedicated to their careers as educators and as professionals in their respected areas. They educated us on up-to-date research, which is very important in the field of science. They also discussed the importance of evaluating current research, which is also important since not all research studies are equal. They challenged us yet supported us in our academics. They also stressed the importance of diversity, cultural awareness, and the underserved in regards to healthcare. Overall, this program gave me a well-rounded education and prepared me in multiple aspects for my career in healthcare.

Loved it. Great professors with tons of knowledge and experience.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

The program was exactly what I expected it to be. I decided to pursue an MBA degree in order to increase my career options by changing the field that I had been working in since receiving my undergraduate degree. The CSULB MBA degree helped me do exactly that and I was able to find a job shorty after graduating, and have been here ever since!

College was a great experience. When I found my calling, I pursued it to the fullest and with that 4-year education and good workplace experience, I got into grad school. The degree I earned has helped me immensely in my professional life.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I loved this masters program. It worked for me because it allowed me to finish within a year while including an experience abroad. My year spent a wonderful week learning about the culture and talking to real businesses about how we believed they could improve. I would recommend it to anyone of my close friends.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2010

CSU Long beach nursing program is a fantastic program which was the reason why I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree from there. Their teachers are ever ready to assist you with any problem or assistance you may have. Their BSN program is structured according to your academic pace, e.g they have a two year trimester program for those who desire to go on a faster track and a three year generic program. Due to how much I love their program, my sister is currently a pre-nursing major hoping to get into their BSN program. Al. T. is their graduate program coordinator who is great at what she does. She is so helpful in providing any information you may need and will go extra mile to obtain any information she doesn't know. Getting your clinical verification and other documents from any school may be a hassle after you graduate, but with Alison, you do not have to worry as she will meet any deadline you have interns of getting your paper work and promptly faxing or mailing it to you. I highly recommend the school for aspiring nurses.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2006

CSULB is truly a hidden gem of an education institution. It offers a variety of degree opportunities with some of the best pool of faculties on hand for support. Programs in the field of Education, Design and Nursing are world class and competitive
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is great and they are very well connected in the sports industry. Be prepared to network because you are going to meet some of the best in the sports world! You only meet for class 1/2 times a week but don't let that fool you. Classes move quickly so you always have something to work on.
