"So many of the issues with Antioch pertain to the administrative side of things, sadly. The clinical training office is a joke, they have one guy doing it part time and he’s completely incompetent and disorganized, so you will spend literal months after ‘graduating’ trying to get him to confirm your clinical training credits (which really is a rubber stamp, since approved supervisors have already signed off on these hours). Suffice it to say that this offboarding experience is so awful, it will taint your entire graduate school experience. And not having those credits completed in a timely fashion also handicaps you during the program, because registration time slots each quarter are allocated based on them, so people who arent in specializations end up getting worse time slots. Beyond that whole nightmare, the quality of instruction is incredibly uneven, with a lot of turnover among the adjunct professors particularly. I had a few great classes, the rest ranged from mediocre to terrible. On the plus side, I met some great people and it was less expensive than comparable programs at USC and Pepperdine (where a lot of the adjuncts also teach, so on the plus side you’ll be taking some mediocre classes at a cut rate). Honestly, if they fixed the CTO, I would feel better about my experience. If you can, get into CSU Northridge."

"The school offers very limited amount of classes and workshops needed for students. During my 2 years at this school they changed the requirements completely and lacked advising for most students. Specialization such as trauma only offer classes in the evenings meaning you are learning about sex trafficking and mass violence till 10 pm. Overall I would not recommend this school because of their lack of organization."

"Antioch accepts anyone who applies and that is reflected in the students you're surrounded by. The teaching and classes are really hit or miss and it's definitely up to you to make the most of your career, as professors are rarely available or helpful."

"I am a graduate student at Antioch University Los Angeles, pursuing my Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology. My goal is to obtain a Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) license. Aside from degrees or licensing, what I really want is to just help people. As an undergraduate, I studied communications and somehow found myself working in advertising. It was a fast-paced and demanding job that I found deeply unfulfilling. As I began to rise in the ranks, gaining some form of success in that career, I could sense that somehow I was in the wrong place. But I had no clear direction where to go. One day, frustrated and exhausted, I began to seek a new path for myself. Eventually, I found myself to Antioch. I was truly terrified of changing course and direction so abruptly. I remember sitting at the orientation last fall thinking over and over again to myself if I was making the right decision. I decided to take the leap. Almost a year later, I have grown more than I could have ever imagined. It's not so much that I have learned more about myself; but rather that I've come to understand myself in a new way. Sigmund Freud said, "Out of your vulnerabilities comes your strength." Never before did I believe that my vulnerabilities could serve me in my life path. I always had thought they were weaknesses to hide, not strengths I could utilize and celebrate. Antioch offers fascinating courses, brilliant professors, and an impressive reputation. But more than anything, this school has an intangible quality that goes beyond accolade or reputation. It has transformed the way I see myself. Its my personal belief that the human experience can be reduced to two basic desires: to love and to be loved. I believe all beings are born with these basic inclinations. Along the way, life experiences often divert us from these most pure intentions. Through my work as a therapist, I hope to help my clients find their way back to self, and overcome their barriers to building authentic connections with their loved ones and in their chosen communities. Thank you."

"I am currently attending Antioch University Los Angeles towards a path of becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am so glad that I have chosen this school for my master's degree. The program is vigorous and hands-on, with a focus on applied work rather than only research. This is important to me because one needs to practice a lot and develop good skills if you want to become an effective therapist. The school provides all the tools and learning opportunities one could wish for. Also, the faculty is extremely knowledgable and supportive, which makes all the difference. I am grateful and cannot wait to truly turn this wonderful learning experience into a career."
