Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

I do enjoy it here at CSUN, that is why I went to undergrad here and now I am here for grad school. I don't spend much time on campus with clubs and such because I am an older student and clubs don't really apply to me too much at this point. Career Support...I have been to the career center on several occasions and they are no help and the website is just as useless. There are no networking opportunities as far as I have encountered not even after I graduated with my BA. The professors I have had have all been awesome and they have been my source of networking and help and wonderful at it. They are who are turn to for advisement and have always steered me right.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

My program is filled with rigorous courses to help us prepare for our profession. The load of work is tough, but the material is interesting. The advisors there are really helpful when it comes to guiding and orienting us regarding our educational goals.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

CSUN offers a great, online MPA program for current working professionals. The classes are online so they meet the needs of those currently working full-time. The classes are engaging and require work which makes the program worthwhile. IT is also one of the most affordable MPA programs.

Degree: MBA

The program does help you build a good network with other working professionals which is a huge plus in any MBA program. The con would be the schedule of classes.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2011

The History M.A. program is exceptional at CSUN. Particularly if your focus is U.S. History. It addresses the needs of students who are seeking to obtain their teaching credentials. Many of the professors are also very helpful if students are seeking to pursue a doctoral degree. The cons are that as an M.A. there is no funding except loans and the social life can change drastically from year-to-year. Nonetheless this history M.A. program is one of the best in the Los Angeles area.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I am enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Pros are definitely the small class size and individual attention and support from faculty and staff. The professors are engaging teachers and really seem to care about student success. Cons are that some equipment, such as the gait lab, are in disrepair due to lack of funding and that the program cost has increased dramatically over the last few years.
