Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My Teaching Credentialing program is one of the best in the state. It's competitive, its Nationally board certified, and graduates from the program are eagerly sought out and employed by local school administrators. It is a tough program, but it prepares all teaching candidates well so that they succeed, even in their first years. They, and I, will excel past our peers and be valuable employees to our schools and our students.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program are that the professors are very helpful in ensuring that students are getting the resources they need to get a job in the industry they desire. I'm always given opportunities to meet industry experts while being provided the information I need to determine which career seems most admirable to me. The cons to the program are the increased cost and fees that all the CSU's are currently experiencing making it very hard to pay my tuition cost with a part time job.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2012

Basing the rating on the beginning of my program and the last year of my pre-grad studies, I feel the faculty and staff are the best aspect of studying in the English program at CSU Stanislaus.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program of history at CSU Stanislaus is great. The requirements are challenging yet manageable. I have enjoyed my graduate experience so far. The best part about the program is the faculty. It is a relatively small department with only eight full time professors and one secretary. They are a very diverse group ranging from the religious fanatic to the ultra feminist/minority advocate and to the environmental hippie, but it would be an understatement to say that they are all great professors. Every last one of them is extremely helpful and approachable to all students. They answer all emails promptly and they will take the time to sit and talk with you even if you do not have a class with them that semester. I have never been turned down for a 'letter of recommendation' request, I have never been turned down for help with a research paper, I have never been turned down for advising, even if the professor was not my adviser, and I have never been turned down for when I just needed to talk. They are wonderful and amazing professors that I hope to one day emulate.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The English program at CSU Stanislaus for the most part has excellent professors who are committed to seeing their students succeed. Occasionally, because of budget cuts, necessary courses were not offered every year, or the semester when they were needed for my program. This made it difficult at times to choose courses in the order that was most beneficial, and ones that were pertinent to my specific career goals.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros - staff is very knowledgeable of material and make the classes enjoyable. cons - no winter or summer session classes available. If you need a class and there are not enough students, the class will get dropped

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

CSU Stanislaus' Bachelor of Science Nursing program is rigorous, but also rewarding. Be forewarned, the program will take over your social life if you do not learn to prioritize your time. I have just finished my first semester, and while the workload was overwhelming at times, I received an immense amount of support from the faculty and my classmates. The faculty and students worked together to master the skills needed in order to prepare us for the nursing field. I am proud to be a second semester student in a nursing program with a 100% pass rate in the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). I am excited to start my second semester because I know I will be learning from professors who have a great amount of experience in the nursing field.

It's a very competitive program to get into, but once in the help from the professors is great. They are there to help you with anything, and you get a lot of hands on experience in the field you are going to work in.
