Review of MHA Program

  • Degree: Healthcare Administration
"This is a review as a current student of the MHA program at the ULV. I only have one term left for graduation so this review refers to all classes exempt for Graduate Seminar. The Masters of Health Services Management lacks structure. Every teacher does not grade according to a rubric. All grades are subjective. All teachers come up with their own standards of what they think is acceptable graduate work. This makes most of the teacher very easy and giving out A's like candy. Very few teachers actually grade to a high standard. The teachers that do grade on a high standard do not provide rubrics or any material to refer to their grading style. This leaves students very confused. Many of the class materials do not prepare you for a job in health care administration. I would say to any prospective students that the only classes that prepare for an actually job is; Financial & Cost Analysis (502), Organizational Communication (504), and Budgeting and Cost Control (532). On a positive note, the teachers are very passionate about this field. I would say that each teacher is good at communicating their experiences and knowledge to the student. The best part of the program is the students. The people who are in the program are dedicated to the field of health care."

"The instructors at the Irvine camus were great! I enjoyed most of the classes and instructors that I had. However, the administration at the school and trouble in regards to fieldwork was horrible and made me go from recommending the program to advising individuals to research other programs. There was frequent misinformation being told to students or administration would take so long to get back to students it caused many of us to miss important deadlines, know importatnt rules or regulations. I would advise anyone to search for a different program or be very meticilous when getting any information from administration, to the point of triple checking."

  • Degree: Clinical Psychology
"I have never felt so supported from a program, its small so you have close relationships with almost every professor. Since clinical psychology is such a small community this is so important and something I took for granted when applying to schools. I always feel competitive when going out into interviews. I can't thank this program enough."

  • Degree: School Counseling
"University of La Verne offers such a wonderful Educational Counseling Program. If you are in doubt of this program compared to others in the area, this program will not disappoint. Faculty is amazing, all professional in the field, and they go above and beyond to help students succeed, network, and even get jobs. They always make themselves available to students. Small cohorts provide the support you need. You get to know your classmates and develop true friendships. The courses are offered only to school counseling students, as opposed to some programs that also include school psychology students in the same classroom. You even get individualized attention for financial services, library services and more. I love it! Every time I called the university, someone answers. I feel well connected and so ready to be a School Counselor."

  • Degree: Sociology
"The Sociology program at University of La Verne was an amazing program. Class sizes were relatively small, with classes within your major with roughly 5-20 students (dependent on the class). Faculty were friendly and accommodating. Faculty also held weekly office hours and were responsive to emails. The campus is located roughly 30 miles from the hustle and bustle of down town Los Angeles in a small and quiet community. The campus is small, modern updates and offers great programs."

"The University of La Verne has given me the best undergraduate career I would of ever expected or ever thought I could have. It is definitely a hidden gem, with the close knit community, the small classrooms, and the amazing resources and staff that are there to help. I received help from faculty and staff no matter what I needed even if they weren't in my field I was able to get support and help from everyone. I would definitely recommend visiting campus if you're considering completing your bachelors degree at La Verne!"

By offering participation in newspaper and magazine production, as well as radio and TV by having their own communication channels, you are able to gather enough experience to go out and hit the ground running as soon as you graduate. Excellent hands-on programs and instruction."

They provide us projected class schedule when we start, so that it helps us understand what classes to take for the next upcoming terms. They are very goal oriented and support your success!"

"University of La Verne prepared me to enter the classroom with strategies to help me teach my students to be 21st century learners. I entered the workforce excited, motivated, and prepared to make a difference. My professors taught me to teach the whole child by using movement, visuals, music, and other intelligences. Since earning my bachelor's degree was so successful, I have decided to go back and earn my masters of education in reading. With this degree, La Verne will prepare me to be a literacy leader. ULV's program is unique because they have a devoted literacy center where I tutor and can apply strategies directly from class into my instruction. I am continuously impressed with La Verne's comittment to students to be prepared educators that have current teaching strategies and provide rigorous instruction."

"The University of La Verne is a wonderful, quint, highly-regarded educational institution located in La Verne, California. I was a collegiate tennis player there, and graduated with honors. The average class size is that of 30, which leaves a lot of room to interact with the professors, ask questions, and pick their brain on concepts. The staff are all extremely helpful, especially when it comes to graduating. I had an excellent experience at the university, and I know that you will too!"

  • Degree: Sociology
"Overall, the University of La Verne is a great learning institution. Although it is diverse when it comes to ethnicity, the university does not offer programs that match that diversity. There are very few majors that focus on the different ethnic groups in the university and a very small multicultural center. However, the university's staff and faculty do everything in their power in order to guarantee student success. The sociology department was always very open and students were allowed to express their opinions without fear or persecution. The student clubs and organizations were also very open to help students feel comfortable on campus. The university also held various events to ensure that the students' mental health was priority. I am a very proud graduate of ULV and would recommend applying for graduating seniors and transferstudents."
