Student & Graduate Reviews

4.08 out of 5.0
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: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros in my graduate program is that I am able to obtain my Master's in Special Education along with my Teaching Credential as I take my courses. I have no cons in the graduate program.
4.83 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Administration is slow, but the teachers care about you and your learning experience.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2014

The program itself is a great value, with caring, experienced faculty and good classroom resources. Students are from all over, bringing a wide variety of experience and ideas, and there are plenty of opportunities to work together. Weaknesses are mostly due to the school's lack of adequate funding for maintenance and to help reduce tuition costs, and administration is not always easy to work with. The location could also be better. But overall a good choice for a business education.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program is that you developed a community within the department and have peers helping you out finish your degree program.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program are: (1) The ability to use creative methods, such as drama and storytelling to bring out key points in books; (2) The creative methods that are mentioned above transcend race, gender, and socio-economic groups; and (3) The methods mentioned also appeal to students who do not learn traditionally, such as with memorization, rote, drill, and so forth.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Attending Cal State Los Angeles would have to be my bestest choice yet. The pros of going to this college is the easiness of getting there. Especially since it's close to my house. The faculty and even the students who have been there a longer time than I have are kind and thoughtful enough to answer any questions I have for them. There are also day cares close by where I know my baby daughter will be safe while her mom's in class. I would have to truly say i can't find any cons in this school.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2014

Doing the graduate program at CSULA increases your chance of getting in their internship program. However, it's been proven difficult trying to figure out what exactly needs to be done. Not every faculty member is up to date with the requirements.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

I think the professors are available if you have any questions and so they are a help. The courses seem to be relevant and accurate.
