Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate are many. One of the good qualities is that there is great class conversations and all the work is related to real life experiences that can be used for the real world. Another pro is that professors are very motivated. There is a lot of work to be done but the material that is given helps you relate a lot to what the class is about and to what is going on in the real world. The cons to me is the price.

The flexibility and accessibility as a full online students is great. There is tons of support and communication throughout the entire process. Although a bit pricier than I expected, it's worth it!

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy

Pacific Oaks is a great place to go to school. True, this will never be the great research school like other larger programs. However, the egalitarian classroom style in which everyone has a voice in discussions and the excellent professors with years of experience in their field make this a great program to learn how to be a good clinician in the challenging field of mental health.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

This is good school, but it is not your traditional school so it is missing the social aspect. Also, they keep raising the tuition so the amount of money that you receive back from refund is not enough to live off of. This should be considered when choosing to attend this school. Lastly, there are lacking organization on some aspects, some things are still being established so it could seem as though you are getting the run around, which is frustrating. The quality of education in the classroom is incomparable and the network that is established in from this program is great.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Pacific Oaks has a wonderful grad program focused on personal growth and academic exellence. The faculty is supportive, friendly, and always willing to help. The classes are more discussion-oriented and theres always time to get questions answered. It is a comuter school so it allows time for a full-time job, family, and other responsibilities.

I have loved the accessibility of the professors and staff. When starting my program there were many people who assisted in getting me started and making sure I felt supported. The information I have learned so far has been valuable to my education and personal life.

I love that Pacific Oaks is based on Quaker Philosophy which embraces and acknowledges the whole person and experience as part of the education. The staff is very supportive and the campus is very comfortable and supports a learning environment. Networking with staff and my fellow students is a very successful career strategy.
