Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is unique because it combines a degree in business with a degree in arts management. Its strengths are its faculty, students, and resources.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Ph.D. program in international security and methods. Strong emphasis on quantitative and experimental methods in all the poli sci tracks--if your math skills are not your strength, they have courses to bring you up to speed, but be aware that the poli sci department is heavily influenced by the econ folks, so you'll be doing a lot of econometric methods. The upside of this is that if you get through the methods track you will be well prepared for data analytics jobs in the real world. Did not rate social scene as a commuting part-time student.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2012

A private institution with an outdated Teacher program! One of my worse mistakes in attending and entering the teacer education program. It was chaotic, passive and indifferent to the changes happening in public education. This program COSTS TOO MUCH for the output it produces!

Big mistake attending! This school is using a 1960's model to a 21st Century era! It cost too much. Made a big mistake. The Teacher's program is living off an old model. Coordinator is awful. This is definitely NOT worth the cost of a teacher education program!!!!!

Graduation Year: 2013

Can't believe how expensive this school is with an awful teacher certification program! Not worth the price at all! Would not invest one dime in this out dated program. The President and Vice Provost of the school are totally clueless to the value or lack thereof of the Teacher Education Department protection given to a student teacher thrust into the chaotic world of public education. A student admitted into the Teacher Education program is better off as a cast member in the movie Hunger Games. School is living off its brand name!

Most disappointing! The CGU Teacher Education Induction program for such an elite private school is a shame! It has a lot to do with those who are coordinating the program at this time. Terribly overpriced and the return value is zilch!!!

CGU Teacher Education Internship is overpriced! The name brand does not correspond with quality outcome. The coordinators lack transparency, honesty and integrity. Past performance does not constitute future success. CGU Teacher Education is currently operating under an old "gatekeeper" approach to educational institutions. It has basically lost its "first love" and has become what is most wrong with elite colleges that are merely living off of their brand name. Check the stats carefully, ask prior students specifically and judge for yourself!

A great program! Although this program is expensive, it provides me with a great network and access to resources that will further my academic career.
