Good practical application of theory via projects and great cohort members. The downside is student services is not well prepared to deal with distance Ed students' needs.

I feel very enriched so far into the first year of my graduate program at Pepperdine. The professors and experience have been amazing so far. Pepperdine is not cheap by any means but the reputation in brings I feel will benefit me in the future.

So far, I have enjoyed my experience at Pepperdine because I believe they have a strong Career Services team at the Graduate School of Education and Psychology that do an amazing job to help student determine their future career plans based on one's interest. They have shaped my outlook on the program, but I feel as if there are some aspects of the program that could use some work to meet the needs of the students. Especially for those attempting to pursue careers outside of the normal route students take.

 The program is run by reputable faculty members and it's a great learning environment and I believe this is one of the best programs out there. Except maybe the cost!

The professors and students make the learning process fun and effective. But using student loans to pay for tuition is overwhelming and worrisome for the future.

The teachers focus on empathy, quality of connectedness to clients and developing yourself as key roles in the future therapists career. Great diversity of backgrounds in the teachers.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Located in beautiful Malibu, Pepperdine is the perfect setting for the stress of law school. The professors apply the right amount of pressure while still being approachable outside of class. The on-campus living is incredibly close to the law school, and feel like you are living in a fancy hotel suite. With a growing reputation and excellent work placement within the area (not so much outside), Pepperdine is a really up and coming Law program.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I attend the Fully Employed program at Pepperdine. Therefore, I work all day and then go to class. However, though it is a fully employed, Pepperdine has gone the extra mile to provide that college experience. We just recently had a workshop that really brought my fellow classmates and I together. The classes are great and I really feel like I'm learning what I came to Pepperdine to learn. I am also taking my classes at Encino instead of Malibu so that makes it easier for me commute wise. The not so great part is that a lot of the great networking opportunities are more catered to the Full Time students at the Malibu campus. However, over all the experience has been great, and one I am really grateful for.

Great program. Very intensive schedule. More than one campus you could choose to take class. Some professors are really great. But you need to network hard by yourself to find a job.
