Not a lot of diversity but employers line up to hire graduates from this school

My school and graduate program has an excellent reputation in the San Francisco Bay Area. I expect to easily get a job after graduating from this program. Overall I feel very prepared to enter into the teaching profession as a full time teacher next year. However, this program is quite expensive. While I do feel prepared to be a teacher, I am leaving Santa Clara University with an excessive amount of student loan debt. It will take me over 10 years of teaching to fully pay off my debts.

The SCU grad school experience has been an amazing one. I have had amazing professors who are able to connect our coursework to our lives and integrate education. They are supportive and willing to work together with students to help us thrive and succeed in such a competitive academic environment.

Tenure and some adjunct professors are very knowledgable, accessible, and straightforward when they state their expectations. Some adjunct professors, however, find a reason to discuss their research rather than discuss what is relevant to the class. It depends who the professor is and what they are teaching. Classes are somewhat competitive to get into as each individual goes their own pace. However, the department was kind enough to offer more sections to classes that students need.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I am enrolled in a hybrid program through my school district. The flexibility to meet at off campus locations was a factor in deciding to attend this program.

I believe the professors in Santa Clara's MFT program are very well versed in their fields and posses a genuine passion for helping others. I feel honored to be taught by them. The only downside I would have to say would be the cost.
