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 males…so 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 more…so 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.
