Student & Graduate Reviews

4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

The pros were that all the books were e books so we didn't have to spend money buying books. The classes were small also. A con was that there didn't seem to be any help with finding a job after graduating.

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

The workload can be mixed sometimes, meaning that in some classes you have too much reading and in others not enough. Some professors are VERY helpful and some are somewhat lazy.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the MSW program at CSUSB is that it is a community of educators and students that become your family. This community wants all of the students to succeed in their goals. The staff and students are very helpful. The MSW program provides quality teachers and tools to help you through the program. They also have great orientations and meetings before the program starts to offer advice or any help you may need. I am excited to finish the program from an excellent quality education institution that cares about each person.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2013

Very supportive team and staff. Financial stability is troubling. Very convenient for people wanting to pursue part time and full time.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

It's new to me and offically do not start until the fall 2013 semester. I will be working entirely online. But am looking forward to be able to work on my own schedule.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are that it encompasses the TESL certificate along with the masters in English Composition. The cons are that there are no summer courses offered in my department to take and accelerate my graduation date. Another major con is having Professor Wendy Smith as a part of the Linguistics course because students are having to teach themselves without any professorial direction when taking any course that she accepts to be the "expert" in.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

CSUSB MS in Clinical Counseling is a well established program with excellent professors. The professors know the subject, have years of teaching experience and an excitement for the field. The specific program I am in has a heavy schedule that makes it difficult to hold down a full time job while attending the program. This can be a serious downfall for many older students. But I believe the quality of the program more than makes up for the inconvenience.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: I feel that the teachers are very helpful and teach the material in a very easy and interesting manner. The way they present thetopics, help you to understand the subject and appreciate it more. Cons: I wish they had more grants and funding available for graduate students, I feel that way they would learn even more.
