Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

This MFT graduate program is very demanding academically and in terms of personal growth. There is a heavy workload for every course consisting of reading multiple texts, engaging with the materials, and writing assignments that require getting involved in the community. It also has high standards in terms of grades considering that students must not earn anything below a B in each course to pass. Although the work is demanding, this program has great value. Students are challenged and encouraged to go beyond what other schools would require. One's spiritual growth is a key component for the program and students are also challenged in this area. The staff in this department is very helpful, accessible and engaged with students. Students also benefit from a strong sense of community and support from other students and the staff. The price for this program is comparable to others in the area, yet the quality of education is hard to beat. Financial Aid is available to students and the program also offers scholarships for new students and those with high grade point averages.

The Individualized MA (IMAP) at Fresno Pacific is a small program. As a result, students can expect to receive individual attention from faculty. Students will have to be very self-motivated. The program is perfect for someone who needs a flexible class schedule. Financial aid is not consistent, but it is possible to work while going through the program. My experience has been quite positive, and I would heartily recommend the school to other graduate students.

Very hard and time consuming, but I wouldn't do it any different. Great community of students and faculty. Everyone is extremely supportive of each other. It is by far the healthiest work environment I've ever encountered. As far as living arrangements and transportation, I commuted so I gave it a neutral rating.

Professors are very concerned about your values on educations. Although the work is extreme the work is very valuable to know. Technology in my courses are very helpful. There are options of when you do your schedules. Tuition is very high but my career life is worth so much more.
