Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel the pros of the graduate program are the seminars provided that cover a variety of topics within biological sciences. The cons of the graduate program would be the communication of the department with the students.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I am just starting the Graduate Program for Special Education so I am not to sure of any cons. To get into the program was an easy process because of the help of the advisors. They showed me what I needed to do and showed me how to do it. They were always open to talk and give me information when I needed it. They worked with me to come up with a program plan, and let me know different ways that I could attack it to finish up the program.

The greatest part of the program is the meeting people who are in the field and offer personal experiences. Most of the classes are beneficial.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program at Cal State LA is small and allows for more time with the students to discuss and really delve into art and research. I also really love that is a very versatile graduate program. The cons of a such a small program, however, is to be noticed among other programs, we have to be careful not be an afterthought.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program requires me to spent extensive hours on my studies with lot of research on relevant topics but as a full time student, I have no time to do part time work to support my livings. It is difficult to maintain good grades if I work beside my studies. Of course the graduate program make me confident individual when going to work force in industries through frequent research and presentation in front of the professionals.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2011

The pros for me are that the credential I am obtaining will allow me to be hired as an Instructional Specialist as soon as I complete the credential program. The cons are the tuition, though reasonable in comparison to other colleges, is expensive for a student working and trying to go to college.

Administration is slow, but the teachers care about you and your learning experience.
