California State University - Fullerton Reviews, Bachelor's in Sociology
I graduated August 2018 with a Bachelors of Sociology through the University Extended Education program (Cohort 5). I loved that school, loved the professors, and value the education I got there. My advisors were helpful from the start even though I accepted my admission late. Even though they start you at 2 classes a semester, they will bump you up to more if you can demonstrate you can take it. Go TITANS!
California State University - Fullerton was recommended to me by friends and family, and has been one of my greatest decisions. I went back to pursue my Bachelor's in Sociology after several years of career and interest insecurity - pursuing several majors and dabbing in many different jobs. CSUF has constant career and professional development opportunities on campus that students are able to sign up for. They encourage networking, technology, and equity! Their staff is friendly and everyone I have encountered have been extremely helpful, their faculty is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding. Currently, I am taking the majority of my classes online, but their online involvement with students is pretty top-notch. I never have to wait long to receive feed-back, and I have had no issues scheduling on-campus and off-campus (online) office hours with my professors when I have had questions, needed extra assistance, or simply experienced high levels of stress in my life and needed an understanding professor to talk to. I highly recommend the Sociology program at CSUF to anyone who is considering the program; first time college students, re-entry students, full-time/part-time and off/on campus courses!
The Cal State Fullerton campus has a "commuter school" vibe, but even with that being said, it is still beautiful, and relationships with others still can be created. The faculty seem very knowledgeable about the fields the fields that they are teaching, with a lot of them having past careers in those fields.
Overall Csuf is a great school, everyone is pretty nice and the classes are cool! Getting involved on campus is very easy as there is always something going on. There's a bunch of clubs and organizations you could join. Books are a little pricey but the library is huge and very modern.
Sociology is the study of all aspects of social life. Completion of a sociology undergraduate degree provides preparation for a diverse range of careers including: social work, politics, law, public administration, urban and environmental planning, public relations, personnel, criminal justice, counseling and other service professions. Also the instructors provide great academic instruction since themselves are curretly working in the field, and have a great deal of experience on the subjects they are teaching. The instructors are always willing to help and very supportive throughout your educational path.
