Letter of Intent (CSULA) Master's Prep


Recommended Posts

Was anyone here a part of the Master's Prep Certificate Program (Post-Bacc) that Cal State LA has? If so I had a couple questions about the letter of intent for the department application. Thanks!

@futureSpeechLP I'm super interested in doing my post-bacc at CSULA or Chapman! I liked Chapman's program because it would only take 10 months, and they offer a spring start date (I missed the deadline to apply for CSULA fall '17).

I'm not sure if you know about Chapman's program or other Southern California programs; I'd love your insight on why you chose CSULA, instead of USU online, etc.

How long did it take for you to complete CSULA's (it says 1.5 years), wondering if there's a full-time option? What was your schedule like?

Sorry it took so long to reply! I was away for most of the summer and wasn't checking GradCafe. I did the 1.5 year option because I was also working. They don't offer this option anymore. The full-time program is 1 year and part time is 2 years. Classes were M-Th with most classes starting in the afternoon to evening. I had some morning classes because I did the statistics course that is the ASHA requirement and I was an assistant in the graduate clinic with late morning sessions. I prefer taking classes in person because I learn better that way. I also want to get to know that community and study with people. It was invaluable for me to have my classmates as resources and support. I loved going to CSULA! I moved to Minneapolis to go the grad program at UMN-Twin Cities. The move was more of a personal family decision - my husband grew up in the Twin Cities and LA wasn't feeling like our permanent home. I got into the CSULA grad program and there is a part of me that wishes I was going to grad school with the friends I made during my post-bacc. It's a phenomenal program with professors who care about you and classmates who are not competitive but become your good friends. Good luck with your post-bacc! Let me know if you have any other questions.
