Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I appreciate having the ability to continue working and care for my family while pursuing my dreams. The faculty are absolutely great. They understand that there is a life outside of the program that doesn't always go smoothly. I really can't speak on behalf of the campus because I have yet to visit it. I do hope to have the time and money to take at least one course on campus. The only con I see is career support. While all the courses are practical and relevant, there is no support to actually find a job.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This has been a great program so far. I would recommend this program to any who are pursuing their dreams of becoming a teacher. Their hybrid course schedule makes work and school easier to manage.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is a great way to develop myself and challenge both as a student and previous athlete. I started MBA to continue with my business education as I got BA in Business. Concordia's MBA program works well with my schedule and offers that flexibility. I work hard during the day, and I go to classes at night, and professors are always there for me if I have any questions. I have two more semesters to go, and I hope I will continue to have success in finishing my program and that the program will help me reach my goals in my career.

This program is great because it caters to all of its students. The online courses make the program accessible to anyone. They also offer on campus classes if you feel you learn better that way.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The categories in ranges 9-13 were a little low mainly because of the campuses isolation from any metropolitan life and it's Christian based beliefs hinder the social aspects of persons who tend to enjoy a more vigorous social life. The main pros are the access to features worldwide that the program allows for you network and branch out in ways you normally wouldn't get from your typical university.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Very short program, lots of staff support, focus on useful skills and practical experience. Cons: mostly online classes rather than face-to-face, difficult to work and complete this degree program at the same time, cost.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

As an International MBA student I was expected to receive more support from the school to find job and internship but they are were not helpful. They should have more events like career fair and guest speakers and other programs for graduate students. there is not enough resources for grad students. The campus is beautiful and professors are good. overall the quality of education is good.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I attend an off campus program and I love the diversity of my cohort. Some of the rankings didn't really apply to me considering that I wasn't studying in Irvine.

I loved the access that we had to the tools for our education. Traveling abroad to China to teach was a grand experience.
