Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

CSUSB is a great school with a large amount of diversity and programs that encourage student development and socialization. While I was completing my undergraduate degree I never really have any unfair treatment, the whole university wants you to succeed. All of the tools such a job fairs, to tutoring, even concerts for student enjoyment are there to allow student growth.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2010

I really enjoyed attending the classes and the professors were very knowledgeable because they actually were public servants as well as instructors. However, I didn't feel like students were given enough real world opportunities outside of the ones they created for themselves. It wasn't also very well encouraged to do a thesis as oppose to the comp exams. I would have enjoyed doing a thesis over the comp exam because it would have better prepared me for the Doctorate program. Yet, overall, I enjoyed the program and would recommend it to someone but mostly because of the real world conversations that took place in the classroom based on the professors actually dealing with certain situations in their other careers closely associated with public administration.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The main campus is starting to become too overcrowded. The professors at the main campus are a bit too relaxed. However, at CSUSB Palm Desert campus located about 55 miles away, is extremely safe, professional and small enough cohorts to really learn to your fullest potential.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

Public Health is a wide field and is increasingly important especially today with people suffering from chronic illnesses like Diabetes and Heart Diseases which with education and creating awareness can be prevented/better managed. The pros of this program is creating the awareness within the students as well as creating the workforce that is crucial today. The Cons of this program is hospitals and other healthcare facilities only want to hire Nurses and Doctors with a masters in Public Health. Graduates from this program are people who are dedicated in this field and are compassionate and know what it takes to help people understand the value of over good health and they do not need to be a Doctor or a Nurse in order to spread the awareness. It is their passion for helping people that led them to choose this field.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The support staff for my graduate program are amazing. They are extremely helpful. They are always willing to go out of their way to make sure that you have the information that you need. My classes are great, and the professors are fantastic. The only complaint that I have is the length of the classes. The class lengths are 4 hours long, but most professors offer breaks. I think the class lengths are long because they are usually offered only on one day of the week. However, everything else makes up for it.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program in Cal State San Bernardino is very helpful their is always someone or some thing available to assist you in your endeavors. There are always professors available to explain class assignments, scholarships, internships and even possible employment in our fields. The only draw back to this program is that we do not necessarily have all of the tools to assist us in our research, being that I am interested in Anthropology, and during my undergrad within this university most of our labs did not have the tools needed to instruct us properly in archaeology . Most of this had to be found through outside sources such as internships and field schools. The school in general has much to offer in means of diversity, safety, transportation ,etc .There is a bus stop right in front of the school so if need be that we want to adventure out into the city that resource is available, there is 24 hour security/ campus police hotline available for students is something were to happen, and all of the dormitories make it so that students have the ability to interact with other students from different cultures, and in most cases countries. The surrounding area in San Bernardino is also lacking in student friendly areas, the only areas that have attractions for nightlife or a place for student and the younger generation to congregate are in other cities such as Ontario, Riverside, and Redlands. The graduate program in general is superb there are always professor's to assist students and the instruction is nothing short of excellent, it is just in certain areas such as labs in the social behavioral sciences that is lacking.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Some of the benefits of the counseling and guidance program here in San Bernardino is that all of the classes are offered here locally and the way the class schedule is set up is great because it allows students to work during the mornings and attend school in the evenings. Another great benefit of this program is that most of the staff are currently working in fields that are related to counseling and guidance, most of the staff work as counselors at community colleges and local high schools. One disadvantage of this program is that most classes are about three and a half hours long which can be pretty longs for most students. Overall the counseling and guidance graduate program at CSUSB is pretty cost efficient and a great program overall.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty and teacher of my program are great. They are very accessible and helpful! I love the program and I am so happy that I chose this school. San Bernardino may not be the most desirable city to live in but most students are commuter students. It is affordable and good quality education.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2016

I will be starting my program this April. I think the pros are that it is mostly offered online which makes it easy for students who cannot get to campus. I also think the Grad Adviser's are very helpful and knowledgeable. Cons are it's a bit pricey for being mostly online.
