4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA in Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Chapman University has provided me with the essentials to get through my undergraduate career and now I'm trusting them to do the same as a graduate student. So far the Masters in Leadership Development has opened my eyes to a new potential within myself. The growth I have experienced as an individual feels monumental and it has only been one semester. In this semester I have experienced two very personal and sincere professors who have only given me a glimpse into the family I have yet to meet and experience. The program allows you to take the broad concept of leadership and gear it towards your passionate place whether it be politics, business, community development or any other place your heart takes you. Each course allows you to think critically in order to apply the concepts to your own passion. The program also allows you to pace yourself to fit your career needs. It offers summer and interterm courses as well as the opportunity to take a travel course if you are interested! I cannot wait for the upcoming months as I begin my summer courses and continue on my journey in the MLD!

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 1991

I was in the active military and took classes at night in their contracted program with the military while stationed in Japan. Finished the program shortly after leaving the military. The school worked with me to achieve my goal. The program was challenging and made me think rather than just swallow information. Very thankful for the school.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

As an alumnae of Chapman University's Communicative Sciences and Disorders program, I am very satisfied with their program. While attending school, the faculty were easy to access and willing to offer support/answer questions. The campus was centrally located and parking was never an issue. Not only did a gain a credible degree which has secured a stable position in my field, I have also made life long connections with other alumni. I would highly recommend Chapman University for anyone interested in becoming a speech language pathologist.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Chapman is an amazing school in all aspects. I received an excellent education and loved all my professors. The professors really care about their students and create an engaging learning environment. The courses offered were challenging and taught me how to think and process information in a deeper, creative way. Chapman has really stepped up as a university and I would recommend this school to anyone.

Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2019

International documentary program has prepared me well for a career in my field. I chose to focus on international documentary production and will travel to South America or South East Asia to complete my documentary production. There are many interesting elective topics as well as great required courses that will help anyone wishing to work in documentary.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

From the moment I filled out the application I felt like a part of the Chapman community. Applying to law school is a scary endeavor and Chapman made it easier by giving me a personalized experience. To give you an idea of what I mean, I received a personal phone call when I was accepted, was treated to dinner by a member of the admissions counsel, and was sent out a birthday card just to name a few things (all this before I had even committed to the school by paying a deposit). Once you start attending Chapman, that personalization will not stop. The professors genuinely care about you and your education as do all the other faculty members. I know without a doubt that I can reach out to any of my professors for help in class or even reach out to any of my fellow students. There is a sense of camaraderie that you can feel as soon as you step onto the campus. I have never regretted my decision to move to CA to attend Chapman
