Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that my program will give me the tools for me to achieve success within my field. The professors and faculty care about their students, and are willing to make sure that you care about your field and studies.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a small program, however, the professors are amazing and come from diverse and qualified backgrounds -- they have taught and studied at some of the most distinguished schools in the nation. Since it is a small program that means the networking is smaller than what you may receive at a more established larger program, but those who have graduated are more than willing to network and connect with current students. Living in the Bay Area means the surroundings are great and there are tons of things to do off-campus... just not much on campus.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

Superior education. It is expensive, but worth the money if you can swing it. Faculty is also fully supportive.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The academic program and faculty are fantastic. The surrounding area of Oakland and the Bay Area has a lot to offer in terms of opportunities and activities. The immediate area is not very safe but campus security is vigilant and there are shuttle systems to public transportation. My classes are very diverse which leads to high quality discussions. Faculty members are always going above and beyond for students.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

Mills College is an incredible and unique higher education institution. Some benefits to gain from Mills is the openness to building from the ground up and improving in all aspects. I appreciate the constant constructive feedback that is mutual between student and faculty. Another great component about the School of Education is the small, family-like environment that it so prominently supports and conserves. One part of the college that needs improvement is building an intercultural campus, and providing a socially, cultural safe space for all walks of life. Also, considering the high cost of tuition, Mills lacks important resources for students, such as scholarship/fellowship information, and has limited financial aid support.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is great due to the diversity of the students and the staff. The program is small so you get to know your peers and are connected to your instructors. I wish the school was more affordable but its worth the cost.
