San Diego State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (36)
I would highly recommend San Diego State University. They provided me with an extraordinary education at a decent price. Many people think going to a large public university would limit their classes. I only had minimal trouble getting into classes and will be graduating in 4 years even though I changed my major two times.
I'm glad I went to SDSU. I had great professors and was involved in some wonderful clubs on campus, including InterVarsity. As a transfer student, I received good resources to help me figure things out. I graduated with no student debt. I wish I would have taken more advantage of the career planning center, honors classes, and similar academic and professional resources as a student.
I attended San Diego State from 2008-2013 and got my bachelors degree and credential from here and I love the program and all the support that I got in my credential teaching program. This school offers tutoring if you do not understand something and a lot of programs and clubs that you can be a part of. In Fall of 2014 I started my Masters of Education online at the University of San Diego and I am still finishing it up. I love this online program, it is fast paced but the professors are very clear with what they want and the work is usually turned in on the weekends which is beneficial for working teachers. Both school are great with wonderful professors.
San Diego State University (SDSU) is ranked one of the top research schools for a reason. Their campus is amazing, their resources are amazing, and their ability to engage students in amazing. In my time as a Political Science student with SDSU I was able to partake in classes and lectures that not only taught me about political theories, but helped me to understand their workings in present day issues and ow to address the world. I had very intelligent teachers that not only conducted their lessons effectively, but also allowed for open forums of thought and debate that I truly believed helped myself and most students to really dive deep into the theories and ideas of political science, how to use it, how to understand the various perspectives, and how to appreciate different thoughts and points of view.
It was a great experience: rigorous graduate work, excellent location, and awesome support for tuition (one year residency waiver, paid assistantships). I feel like I received a top tier education without the soul-crushing debt that comes with colleges these days.
You get what you put into it, but the professors are excellent and campus beautiful.
Excellent school of public health. The environmental health program was especially good. Lots of one on one attention from both your graduate advisor as well as professors. Lots of opportunities for research. Loved every second of this program.
The school of social work at San Diego State University has been around for over 50 years and offers 2 or 3 year Master's level programs. The Campus has many dining options as well as activities for students.
Great school with many opportunities and great professors. People from different walks of life can definitely succeed here.
SDSU is a great business school so many students double major or Major in International Business with a minor in Japanese. The Japanese program here is very good and is very fast paced, challenging and useful for business majors, but also good for the language on it's own. I highly recommend taking advantage of their study abroad program. It changed my life and it was the best thing I ever did. Do note that the classes can be very challenging though and require a lot of study. Don't overload yourself with many classes that require a lot of memorization. I was an art major as well so I tried to balance a couple of studio classes with lecture/memorization type classes, which made for a better combination.
