Degree: Law

Fowler School of Law, Chapman University is a great place to be! The Professors are committed to ensuring that every student gets the best in his/her LL.M academic pursuit by creating a friendly and interactive learning environment. I would gladly recommend Chapman University to any one that wants a positive life changing experience in the study of law.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2019

I will have a PhD in an area I am very passionate about and will be mentored by professors who are the top in the field. The program emphasizes collaboration and sense Chapman is a small school it is more intimate. The cost is higher than other schools.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of this graduate program is that they provide you with enough support to make you feel confident in what you are learning and that you have people who you can go to if you need help. The cons of this graduate program is that it is rather expensive.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

This graduate program is relatively new to others in California. As such, much of the logistical aspects of the program have not been worked out. There is currently no funding given to students that apply to the program with the exception of limited $750 grants that students can apply to. The campus is overall very beautiful and the use of technology is extensive. Chapman enjoys the benefit of being recognized by many community, business, and political leaders in the area.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall Chapman University is a wonderful school. The school overall is kept in great condition as everything looks very new and is very clean. The staff at Chapman University is also extremely helpful and all of them are able to help you. As it is a private university I have found it extremely easy to get my classes and never have to worry that they are at full capacity. The professors are also wonderful at Chapman Unviersity. They have a lot of experience in the field and they do a great job of tying in the things you learn in class to real life examples from our careers. They are also very understanding that all of us are working people and are very accomodating with homework assignments and projects. The cons with the schuol is that it is extremely expensive. Everythng from the courses you take, parking, and just living in the area. There's not a lot of financial aid for graduate students who attend the school part time which is a bummer. Another thing that is frustrating is that if you are a graduate student they don't offer any morning classes. They are all in the afternoon or evening, making it hard if you have an evening job. There's just not a lot of flexibility with their scheduling of classes. Also parking can be extremely hard as well if you decide to take an afternoon class. I would recommend just having evening classes just on that part alone.
