Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

The Counselor Education program was amazing! I feel that it allows students to become aware of who they are, to recognize personal issues and to work on them before we become effective counselors and go out to the field. The professors in the program are working professionals and with many years of experience. I had excellent mentors and professors that provided me with great support and advise. I really enjoyed being able to be in small classes because it allowed me to get to know my classmates and create long lasting relationships. Another thing that is great about the program is that it prepares the students to go out and work in the fields. I loved my practicum classes in which I was supervised by my professor through a two-way mirror. The debriefing sessions were helpful and really appreciated the feedback that was provided. I would have to say that some of the things I did not like about the program is that we were separated into cohorts and that we had to follow a set schedule of classes each semester. This did not allow for flexibility, which is something that I really needed during my years of graduate school. Overall, my experience was excellent. I miss my graduate program.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

Graduate school helps you gain job security by making you move up to management positions. However, when looking at the financial aspect, graduate school creates a burden on the student to constantly think about how to pay off all those loans.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

The Speech Language Pathology graduate program at California State University, Sacramento is an excellent program that trains individuals to exceed in the field of Speech Therapy. The professors are very knowledgable and keep up to date on current research and have practical experience that enables them to give us the best education possible. It is a competitive program but it also has a vast support system and everyone involved wants you to succeed. One con is that the facility that the program is situated in is very old in is in desperate need of update to make it fit the current needs of the population better.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program, fantastic professors and insightful clinical instructors for practicum. I have learned so much about the field, how to conduct effective and high quality therapy and clinical reports. It is a lot of work but also very rewarding. In the end you see results and you realize all your hard work was for something and it paid off. Great program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

For this particular graduate program you truly need to be an on call student. This means that you cannot work more than 15 hours per week, and you really need to push through the workload. I know that I am getting an education from one of the best programs in Psychology (Applied Behavior Analysis) out there, but it is a lot of work. In addition, people in the program tend to be out for themselves and more than willing to take credit for your work, and one must not trust any other student too much. The hardest part about the program is that you are expected to go to conferences all over the United States, costing well over $1000 per conference trip without being able to work to save the funds. This is a great program overall, and it goes by incredibly fast (2.5-3 years for a Masters degree). You get what you are willing to put in. It is a great programming for networking, and 100% of students graduate with a job in their field. In fact, students in this program are wanted by local and non-local companies.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, I am enjoying the program and feel like my knowledge is expanding more everyday. However, at times I wish there were more faculty support and faculty emphasis on the need of self-care/offered counseling support services.

I like that it is an on-line program. They keep in mind that we are working as well as going to school.
