Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Sacramento State is located in the heart of California, this makes this school a great place to be as far as location. As far as how valuable graduate students are to there programs, it seems that students prefer to attend schools that are willing to offer more financial support to their students. So far, even before our program has started, we had about 5 students drop out for financial reasons. CSUS does not support or offer any scholarships to their DPT students.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

There definitely are a lot of great things about CSU Sacramento. The support from professors and the technology that is offered from the campus are amazing. Also it is a beautiful campus that offers a lot to its students. Social life is a major lacking point due to the fact that CSU Sacramento is more of a commuter school and students usually do not stay on campus outside of class time. It is academically challenging, but also rewarding at the same time. There are a good amount of opportunities in government in the Sacramento area.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

CSUS has helped develop my skills to continue my educational aspirations to receive competitive experience in research. This foundation has helped earn to further my educational goals by being accepted to a PhD program for the upcoming fall. I couldn't have done without the faculty support and the experience from the program.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my credential program at Sacramento State are affordability, diversity, convenience, and overall effectiveness of my professors and administrators. The emphasis on teaching diverse students is imperative in our society today. The aspects of of my experience at Sacramento State that I would like to change are the high cost of parking and additional fees for campus activities I do not participate in, but the cost is worth it in terms of the value of the education that I am gaining in developing skills and tools to be an effective teacher.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

As a prospective educator in the post-secondary sciences, Sacramento State is offering me a great opportunity to work as a graduate teaching assistant. I will have hands on experience teaching college level courses before I graduate. I do have interests in teaching outside of biology, so I wish that the graduate program included courses in physics. Overall, I am very pleased with what CSUS has to offer.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

CSUS is a wonderful university to attend, the Biology Grad. program contains a robust facility who are all experts in their own fields. Each professor is easily accessible, and respond to any inquiries or emails in a short time period. The classes are thorough and engaging, without being exhausting.
