If you take your academic career seriously DOMar 06 2017Geography and Geosciences
If you take your academic career seriously DO NOT go to CSUN. This school does NOT support it's grad students in terms of TA and research positions. If you can pay the tuition then you will get the diploma. Unfortunately, the diploma is not worth the paper it is written on. If you want to study Geography go to a legit school like UCSB. STAY AWAY from CSUN!
The teacher's credential program is a joke: justApr 27 2013Education
The teacher's credential program is a joke: just put in your time and you'll get an 'A' in the class. I felt completely unprepared for the classroom. 99% of the classes were about theory: "The history of elementary education". We had one 'professor' who spent the whole class period reading out of the newspaper and asking us what we thought about the article. Another 'professor' would make us create grandiose lesson plans that could never be recreated in a typical classroom. As for helpful? Most of the elementary professors were women who were prejudiced against male teachers. "Maybe you should find another career" and "men aren't really nurturers, you know" were the typical comments professors would tell me.
