Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2013

Having earned both my Bachelor's Degree and my Teaching Credential from Sac State, and currently working on my Master's Degree, I can honestly say that this University is devoted to its students. The Professors are dedicated to making sure that their students are given not only the education, but also the chance for success. They take into account their diverse students' backgrounds and experience and are willing to help them when it really is in the best interest of the student. Through my education at Sac State, I am confident in my knowledge to move to post-secondary education, and know that I have support from my professors even after I graduate. The only thing that I wish Sac State had was a Doctoral Program in my area of interest.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

All of my instructors get to know their students one on one. We are encouraged to communicate with them through email and phone. They do everything in their power to ensure that we understand the content and can apply it appropriately. Many of the courses have an online component which makes it easy to "attend" no matter what my schedule. The face to face classes we have are arranged with the students to ensure the greatest number of attendees as possible.

This school is very affordable.It is accessible by bus and light rail.The teachers are very supportive. The only drawback is the school is popular so some programs are impacted, and more difficult to get in.

I am enjoying Graduate School at Sacramento State University. The budget issues definitely impacts my financial aid greatly, but it does not stop me from getting an education.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the grad program in Counseling at CSUS. I know I listed health but we study mental health. The pros of the program are the experiences of the faculty. The general love of the profession and the perseverance to continue to train new counselors to be the embrace diversity the diversity of others in the journey is felt in every class. I feel when I leave this place I will have developed a sound foundation to work in the field. The program does run through Cohorts of students, which makes getting the right classes each semester very easy. They are guaranteed. A con to the program is that it is not work friendly and does not work really well with a part time schedule due to cohorting.

Pros is that I get to work with people who care about the health field and want to make a difference. They prepare us alot for our careers. Cons are that there is small diversity within our classes.
