The homework, texts, and projects all have been very helpful in learning the material to be on exams, the objectives of the classes are clear and educational material has been exciting to learn. The professors are great with communication and classmates have been helpful in the learning experience as well. Not to go without mention, awesome vip student seating at USC football games!

My enrollment advisor, Mr. Petronus Williams was invaluable in the process of touting all of the benefits of choosing the University of California as my destination of choice for my Masters degree. We discussed the high academic caliber of professors along with the school's stellar reputation. Of most importance was our discussion of my eventual standing in the world of Gerontology after graduation which clinched the deal for me. The fact that the classes were online did not discourage me because more work is required in online courses. I'm not afraid of hard work and my 3.68 GPA is proof of that. I am looking forward to the start of class and more learning ALL I can in the field of Gerontology. Onward and upward at USC thanks to Mr. Williams. I salute you!
The instructors are incredible!!! They genuine care about their students understanding the course work and succeeding not only in school, but also in life. They have all been so accommodating!! All my professors have provided their cell phone number, so the professors can help a student understand the material and assignments one-on-one. They generously provide support and insight when students are stressed and overwhelmed. The courses are very interesting and provide valuable information students will utilize in their career.
