"My program is new, so there are some kinks that go along with that. However, my teachers are some of the top researchers in the field and the networking opportunities are emense so I am happy with my choice."

"I am a student in the Cohort program MA Educational Technology and this is my second semester at CSUN. I enjoy this program very much, I love the support of the instructors and I love the technology tools available in the school. This program will give me the highest trend of technology and tools that I can use to take my teaching to a higher level. CSUN is located in a safe area and everyone is very friendly in this place."

"BCP program is one of the strongest in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis at this time. The workload is intense but the professors are immensely helpful and are great contributors to the field. Their knowledge of ABA, as well as the design of each course, makes this program invaluable. More financial aid would is definitely needed however, as it is not recommended to work while in the program."

"The pros of my graduate program are the ability to work independently, quality of the instruction, and the affordability of the program. The cons of the program are that there is very little career instruction, the requirements for obtaining the degree are not posted clearly, and my principal investigator is not as accessible as I would like."

"I really enjoy my graduate program in the school of social work. The classes are all pre-registered for me automatically so I don't have to worry about getting into the classes that are needed. The professors are great."

"My graduate program is overall a very good experience. The school is supportive and the workload is manageable. However, we were told you could get this degree while working and that is not the case. The inner-politics of the department is a bit much and can be annoying, but over all for the quality of education (which is high) and the price (which is low) this is a great deal!"

"My program meets off-campus as a cohort, located in the school district of my employment, so it is very convenient. My cohort is a diverse group of educators, and the discussions and classwork have been stimulating and interesting. The professors are reasonably challenging and the coursework has been manageable so far."

"It is a "State" school, so you know what you are getting into. This school really is whatever you make of it... if you want to study hard and seek opportunities you can do well, or you could just coast if that is what you want to do."

"Very good professors with professional experience and dedicated to helping students progress. However resources are limited and access to campus during off hours makes it difficult to work outside of class."

  • Degree: School Counseling
"One of the pros is that the faculty are experienced current or former school counselors. The faculty are extremely helpful and friendly. They have done a good job of bringing in guest speakers to expose students to a variety of different facets of school counseling. Classes are in the evening, so it fits my schedule well."

"The Master's of Kinesiology degree is highly customizable. You are able to build your degree by choosing your option and then choosing which seminar classes you think are most pertinent. Major con is that classes are dropped if there is not high enough enrollment in classes. This results in few seminar choices. Graduate advisor did substitute a gerontology course for a seminar class when my class was dropped last minute."

"The pros of my program include small and specialized classes. I also believe that when sought out the advisement for the program is good (support faculty). Class times are geared toward working professionals. The cons would be that a degree in dance under Kinesiology is classified as MSA opposed to MFA. Classes can also be a challenge to enroll in from semester to semester."

"I actually don't see any cons about my graduate program because the way I see it is that is going to give me more knowledge on something that I'm really passionate about which is engineering. Also, I believe that this graduate program is going to give me a stronger background to be able to to work at any place."

"CSUN has a great credential program. They have a 2 year program for those that want more flexibility and they have a 1 year program for those who want to get it done quickly. The one year program has a neurodevelopmental methodology teaching focus. This is great because it will help future teachers be able to reach all kinds of different learning abilities. For this program, students are placed in schools for student teaching in the valley while the other program places students in other areas of Los Angeles. CSUN is also well known for its teaching credential program and is highly recognized by many in the industry."
