Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019

I have decided to apply to Dominican University of California Physician Assistant Studies Program because I want to become part of a close-knit and supportive team that values service, community, and diversity. I admire Dominicans commitment to diversity and respect for each individual regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. I believe that Dominicans PA program will not only prepare me to become a proficient and compassionate PA, but also a provider who is culturally sensitive to a wide range of patients. It would be an honor to fulfill this mission as a graduate of Dominican's PA program.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2017

Dominican is a small university so the classes are small. Professors are committed to seeing you succeed. It's not about just turning in a paper and getting a grade. The professors work one-on-one with you to help you be the best you can be. The work is challenging but not daunting. My favorite part of the program was sharing some of my classes with undergraderates (really smart young kids), which gave our class a broad spectrum of life experience. This made our discussions in literature and philosophy classes especially rewarding. This school is also the leader in teacher "big history", making it broad minded. Most of the professors are committed to engagement learning, meaning less emphasis on lectures and more focus on guiding the class to find the answers on their own. Of all my college years, these past two years have been the best.

I enjoyed the school. It is small, but in the last few years it has grown and has more opportunities available for students.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

I knew I would learn to be a better thinker and writer when I applied to this program, but I had no idea just how much I would improve. I am half way through this program. For the first time in my life, I see myself able to accomplish very high level, intellectual pursuits. I will come out of this program as highly skilled and excellent writer, capable of more than just genre writing. My only wish is that they allowed more than just 9 flex units towards the degree so we could take more writing and literature courses.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Dominican is a great option for students looking to earn a teaching credential in the Bay Area. It's a small campus, easy to get to via public transportation, and very safe. I would say I recommend it most for the grad student. It's not a huge party school--it's best for students looking for a quiet place to focus. It's a beautiful campus with a rich history.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

I can't think of any place better than Dominican University of California. It's beautiful, quiet campus is inspiring. The small classes give you one on one interaction with your professors and classes meet at night so you can work in the day. Best of all, it's all about you and helping you meet your goals. Here, you are not a face lost in the crowd. You are the star standing in the spot light center stage.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

This program has great instructors, all of whom are practicing clinicians. They bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the classroom and are invested in the students' learning experience. The community of local and statewide therapists respect the program and hold it's students and graduates in high esteem. If you can afford it, I highly recommend this program.
