Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The program creates well rounded social workers capable of tackling any issue they are presented with. The only two negatives are" it's a lot of work and USC is incredibly expensive - but for what you get out of it, the program is incredibly rewarding and very much worth it.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2015

Thus far, USC School of Pharmacy is competitive, diverse, and high in quality. Professors and staff go out of their way to assist you in developing into a quality healthcare professional. Moreover,the workload involved within our curriculum is overwhelming. However, our curriculum centers its focus on strengthening our understanding of pharmaceutical material to ensure that proper patient care is executed at every level of healthcare.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

USC Pharmacy school has helped to prepare me for a career in pharmacy. I believe the best value from this school comes from the USC trojan family network, opportunities to explore multiple disciplines, and opportunities to help underserved communities get better health care.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

I attend the MAT program, which is entirely online. This program is very rigorous, but relevant. You can see a direct connection to what you will be doing after graduation.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe that this is a great graduate program that prepares it's students with the highest level of education. The cost is the hardest part of the program, being able to support one's self while attending and being able to afford loan repayments after is the biggest struggle.
