"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."

"My experience at this institution was a positive one overall because I learned so much about not only direct practice skills but also, mental health. I was a part of an exceptional mental health training program that broadened my knowledge about this particular field and which, has helped me thrive in my current employment. In regards to the cons, I think the program could have focused a little more on our unequal social systems and policies that produce the social inequalities of our society. This would therefore encourage the student population to be active agents of change and aspire to make a real structural change in society that will therefore improve the livlihoods of our surviving populations."

"With the decline in the economy and the increasing need for graduate level education for meansingful employment in many fields, there are a lot of students in programs like this. SDSU's social work program is one of the more affordable in the state, but also quite reputable. Its benefits over other social service programs in the area by being one of the most flexible as well, offering two, three, and four year programs. Drawbacks are the commuter education experience and lack of program cohesiveness compared to, say, the MFT cohort. Quality of instruction varies widely, and some professors lecture on the exact same information covered in the reading, and paying for redundancy always seems a waste."
