California State University-Northridge Reviews
Although I don't work in a field related to education, because of my age (60) and failing health, CSUN gave new insights to my life, better opportunities, even working as a nanny, I got a top salary because of my education. CSUN counselors are great, they helped me to accomplish something that I had dreamed of, 25 years ago when I came to this country. I love CSUN.
CSUN is a great institution for higher learning. I was supported by my professors and advisors which allowed me to achieve the goals I created. The Deaf Studies program is one of the best in the country and I could not have asked for more relevant information. The professors in the Deaf studies department respect their students and support them in any way possible.
Don't go to this program. I should have gone to CSULA. The professors here have issues. Importantly, the material taught is not taught well. It's like if they are tired of teaching. The focus on the program is on counseling and consultation. The field nowadays focuses on behavior. There's is no real focus on behavior. The behavior class we did have was a waste of time. We only got one class in behavior with a proffesor who was absent often and was too busy working on his thesis. There's also issues in the demeanor of these professors who are quick to judge you and threaten you with kicking you out of the program.. They will offer everyone personal feedback on your perceived personality flaws and have meetings with you. I personally saw how they ganged up on a student and made her quit the program. They have a counseling class that is supposed to teach counseling skills. But the class solely focuses on you talking about your personal life and the teacher gets mad when you don't. It's very strange because these professors will have meetings to talk about you, and they are not embarrassed to admit it. It's hard enough having to work and go to school and do school work. It makes it more difficult to have to deal with the petty crap these professors make you experience. I've spoken to other psychologist who didn't deal with this in their graduate experience.
