Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently in the M.S. Counseling (School Specialization) program at CSU-Sacramento and will be graduating this May 2015. I attended CSU-Sacramento for my undergrad at well (Majoring in Biological Sciences), and this campus has become home to me. The M.S. Counseling program is wonderful and the faculty and staff are supportive and extremely knowledgeable. One of the things I appreciate most is the diversity this college offers. The campus is beautiful with lots of trees and squirrels. The only con I can think of is the limited restaurants on campus compared with other schools, but other than that this school is highly recommended. In regards to my graduate program, I have learned a lot and have gained valuable experience working in the field. This M.S. Counseling program is CACREP accredited, which "ensures that students receive quality educational experience". We currently only have 4-5 full time faculty members, therefore that may be a con because part-time/adjunct professors may not know the course work as well as our full-time faculty members. I have met great friends and mentors in this program and am so glad I chose this program at this school.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently in the Masters of Business Administration for Executives program at the California State University, Sacramento. The program is fast pace cohort base with an extensive support from staff and administrators. Professors organize their lectures to be fun and engaging for students by using various forms of resources. Guest lectures add to the material being presented from a different perspective and explain how the material is utilized in real life. Well worth it to spend 49 weekends with your cohort.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

CSUS is a great school. The professors are passionate and helpful. There is great transportation to campus from downtown Sacramento and the surrounding areas. Unfortunately, there is very little available financial aid

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Professors give students opportunities to earn more points if they did not fully understand the assignment. Program staff show support to students in the program. Cons: Some classes require in class exams. I feel that it is a lot of pressure to take in class exams because I am unable to put everything that I have learned together.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

I am in my first semester at Sacramento State, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. It is providing me a college experience I never had before. I am an older non-traditional student, and I work full time while taking classes part time. The professors understanding of scheduling time, and the quality of the education I am receiving is unbeatable. It is a very highly competitive program, and the school is not easy to get into, but it is worth the effort to put in and try.
