Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

UCLA is a premiere university and provides an excellent program for future California teachers. One of the major benefits of the program is that it educates teachers on how to be advocates for social justice in the education system. It is a thrill to work alongside faculty in the city who care about the well being of the community. A drawback to the program is the size. We are in cohorts but the cohort groups are between 20-30 graduate students which is a little too large for small group discussions in our seminars.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

The first year is heavily packed with coursework, you are constantly assigned problems and being evaluated. You pretty much spend the entire year preparing for your comprehensive exams in June/July (i.e., there is no room for independent research in the first year), which you must pass with sufficient margin to continue in the program. For most people, it is a rough year with little room for much else than education and work, but you learn of ton in the first year and the ones who pass come out strong. Furthermore, LA is a great city to live in as a young person. Whatever interests and hobbies you may have, they can be pursued on campus or nearby in the city.

Graduation Year: 2016

UCLA Anderson is the BEST part-time MBA program if you want to continue working in the Los Angeles area. Not only is the program world-renown, but it has a strong network that crosses geographic boundaries.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

UCLA has an amazing healthcare network, which provides in depth teaching and the ability for excellent clinical learning in the hospital setting. The program is very competitive but the school of nursing has a huge diversity within the cohort. People of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and education levels are integrated into the program providing a more rounded experience.

UCLA's graduate program provides the level of knowledge the availability of networking opportunities that I need. It is a prestigious program for hardworking students with a good payoff for those who can get through the work.
