Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program provides a great amount of film production training. It is a wonderful experience having hands-on learning in the classroom while doing independent filmmaking. I am truly satisfied with working with the distinguished faculty and going to networking events that can help me get easy access to film careers.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

Chapman University is an amazing private university located within just miles of Disneyland, downtown Anaheim, and Angel Stadium. The program is very competitive, advisors are readily available to help, and there are many resources for career support.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I am very positive about my graduate program, especially because the school offers me the opportunity to expand my knowledge of Film Studies with the experience of film production. My fellow students are very talented and ambitious people, which is stimulating and creates and inviting environment to develop my own talents. Unfortunately, it is a pretty expensive school and if I want to fully register for an extra class (not just audit it) I have to pay a lot of extra money. This can discourage students in the Film Studies program to expand their skill-set.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Chapman University has an excellent teacher education program and graduate school for educational leadership and curriculum studies. Chapman's faculty are caring and provide positive and rigorous environments for students. The one draw back of Chapman university is that it lacks in student diversity.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Academically Chapman's DPT program is great. It is challenging and I believe it will prepare my for my career. They just moved the Health Science campus to Irvine so there is not that much around the area and the actual campus is still being worked on so some tech aspects are not working properly (like only one side of the building gets wifi).

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

Physical therapy is an incredibly rewarding and demanding field of study. Chapman University has state of the art facilities and wonderful professors/professionals to help you learn and succeed. Financially, this program is a huge investment and Chapman University does not offer a ton of financial support outside of offering loans.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The best part of the program at Chapman is the quality of the professors and their dedication to each student. My teachers are all focused on training myself and my cohort to be the best school psychologists we can be. I love that they limit the class size to 20 and get to know us individually and provide feedback on our work. The only downside to attending Chapman is the added cost of a private university.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Chapman University School of Law has a beautiful campus, friendly students, and great professors. The school's scholarship system seems to push most students out of eligibility through the use of a strict competitive median application that makes students appear less desirable as job applicants. But overall, the quality of life and educational advancement makes Chapman University Dale E, Fowler School of Law a good choice.

Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2016

Everyone will tell you that you don't need a master's degree to work in film and to a point that is very true. My experience has been different since I did not enter the school with a film production background, but rather came in with some freelance type experience from a tangentially related field. This program is a conservatory type school that allows you to focus in the discipline you would like (directing, cinemetography, editing and sound design). Class size is small and access to professors is phenomenal. Some of the structure of the current program is undergoing changes that I feel will benefit the incoming students and will take the focus off of time consuming intro level busy work and start prepping students to deal with larger productions and working together right off the bat. Orange is...a suburb and doesn't have much going for it other than that. The area is nice, everything is pretty safe and pretty bland. BUT LA is just a short ride north and most students migrate to LA by their third year in program to take advantage of the city and the work opportunities. As with any graduate program you will only get out as much as you put into it. Work hard, play hard and get to know as many people as possible so that you can build a network among fellow filmmakers who will be jumping into the real world after school ends.
