Program was okJun 14 2014Linguistics
Program was ok... there are some teachers who are wonderful, and then some who are terrible and very few (if any) in between, so it is a hit or miss. Some teachers are hard to avoid, as they have a monopoly on certain required classes.

The program is 98% women, 1% gay male, and 1% old creeper good luck if you are female and thinking you will meet a guy in this major...not possible... Also, the school overall is 65% female or it is pretty dismal prospects.

Overall the students are nice, but there are too many ESL speakers who have a low level of English proficiency. Oftentimes they bog the classes down because they are unable to respond, understand, or participate in class. Personally I think there should be far more rigid acceptance rules (like higher TOEFL scores, a required GRE writing score of at least 5) before admittance for foreign students.

Most of the class time is wasted onJun 10 2011English
Most of the class time is wasted on irrelavant topics such as politics and Hollywood and this causes my workload to pile up endlessly. I feel like I am wasting my hard earned dollars on classes that are not really classes, especailly when the professors include the students in these discussions. As for continuing my pursuit for my master's degree, forget it. I am going to another school. I can't even get an answer from anyone, all they do is nothing that is releavant to class and I have to wait several days before being served. The assignements have no merit towards the topics of the classes either.
