California State University - Bakersfield Reviews

17 reviews
I was just recently accepted into Bakersfield's MS in Counseling Psychology program for Fall 2020. While doing my research, I noticed that this was the only program that provided hands on training with their campus counseling center on campus. This opportunity allows graduate students to work on caseloads with licensed Psychologists. I felt this program would provide the proper training and give me a heads up when I enter the Psychology field once I attain my degree.

Faculty and staff are always willing to help students. I have been in 3 different grad programs until I finally found the one that was right for me. Each program was different but had advantages. Now currently in the MS Educational Counseling - Student Affairs program, I am learning so much. It’s a 4 semester long program that teaches students how to counsel students in higher education.
I love the interactions professors maintain with students. I have had many classes that are engaging and interactive. The class sizes are relatively small, allowing for a more intimate teaching setting and getting to know all of your peers (think networking opportunities down the line!). Additionally, the MBA program is now offering online classes, to allow for greater flexibility for working students. I am happy I chose this school, and hope you can say the same.
