Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

I am in love with the online Cohort program! So far, I have been in the program for a year, and it has been a wonderful experience. As long as you're self-motivated to do your homework and watch lectures, you will do fine.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Up and coming fresh program, this is both a pro and a con. You have the unique ability to help mold your own program, but it is already very well respected in the field. Networking opportunities here are pretty exceptional and the evening class format makes working possible. I would recommend this graduate program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

My program is new, so there are some kinks that go along with that. However, my teachers are some of the top researchers in the field and the networking opportunities are emense so I am happy with my choice.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Although my classes are online, I love that they are not "easy" and I really feel like I'm learning something. The teachers are great and are professionals in the filed we are studying and everything we are learning can be applied in the real world.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

I am a student in the Cohort program MA Educational Technology and this is my second semester at CSUN. I enjoy this program very much, I love the support of the instructors and I love the technology tools available in the school. This program will give me the highest trend of technology and tools that I can use to take my teaching to a higher level. CSUN is located in a safe area and everyone is very friendly in this place.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

BCP program is one of the strongest in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis at this time. The workload is intense but the professors are immensely helpful and are great contributors to the field. Their knowledge of ABA, as well as the design of each course, makes this program invaluable. More financial aid would is definitely needed however, as it is not recommended to work while in the program.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program are the ability to work independently, quality of the instruction, and the affordability of the program. The cons of the program are that there is very little career instruction, the requirements for obtaining the degree are not posted clearly, and my principal investigator is not as accessible as I would like.
