Fantastic program and incredible quality of life. I chose UCI over other programs that were higher ranked and offered better stipends -- I do not regret my decision! Irvine is a great place to live and study, the program is never overwhelming and isolating, and the faculty are easily accessible and interested in working with students. Really a top notch program made possible by top notch people.

Great program and school. Housing is subsidized which is good because it would otherwise be un-affordable. Faculty support is great and the program provides great structure and has good job placement record.

Pros: Great program with excellent faculty in diverse sub-fields. Faculty support is excellent. Extremely collegial department (students and faculty alike). Socially active department and campus; close to beaches and a short drive from LA. Courses offered regularly in primary sub-fields (social movements, immigration, social networks). If interested, there are opportunities to take courses and work with faculty across disciplines. Cons: Need a car if want to really get to know the surrounding area. Living on campus is affordable, but affordable off-campus options are difficult to come by. Graduate stipends are low compared to private institutions.

Pros: Faculty are generally very accessible and supportive of students. Faculty are top scholars in their subfields. Financial package is reasonable and guaranteed for five years. Cons: Location is suburban, safe but boring.

I believe that there is excellent support from professors and a great environment to collaborate with peers. I think the overall cost of living is detrimental to the development of the program and that the rising cost of transportation (parking) is only getting worse. Overall, I think it is a fantastic program that could be improved if UCI better controlled the cost of student-housing and parking; however, the program itself is exceptional!
