Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The best part of USF Law is the faculty's willingness to help. Almost all of the professors have an open door policy that allow students to ask any questions.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

I am an online student which makes this program very flexible around my family and job. The classes in the program are challenging me to look further into the future of health care and see what I can to do to improve my nursing practice.

The faculty are extremely accessible and great instructors. It is a very supportive community. the only con is that it is a new program so some things are still being figured out, but they keep us informed.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

Excellent setting within the city of San Francisco with challenging coursework and amazing faculty. The program adequately prepares students for a career in public health and the courses offered are interesting and applicable. The only cons with this program are the high cost of tuition and lack of financial aid support through USF.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The program uses a cohort model, which creates cohesion and familiarity in the learning process. The instructors have a lot of professional experience, and are a wealth of knowledge. Being at a regional campus, the social support and connection to the main campus programs are non-existant. We pay student government fees, but have no student activities at our campus.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

a bit challenging for a working nurse, but doable if you put the rest of you life on hold.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

USF School of Law provides a dynamic and stimulating environment for pursing a legal career. Professors are helpful, friendly and generally quite accessible. Students are also very supportive of one another and are interested in a variety of different fields that directly effect and influence important social structures.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013

The University of San Francisco nursing school prides itself on diversity and social justice while providing a top tier education. The faculty have a vast wealth of professional experience which appropriately augments their lessons and all have been very supportive of the individual student experience. The entry level MSN is accelerated. The work is abundant, but manageable. The only potential drawbacks are that this school is expensive, and administratively disorganized at times. They will bend over backwards for you if you fall into specific demographics as well in an effort to promote their values regarding diversity and social justice as previously stated. The atmosphere is also liberal and sometimes radical liberal, though faculty do not impress their personal opinions onto students.
