    “The flexibility offered by California Southern University was instrumental in my learning experience and, ultimately, a part of the reason I chose CalSouthern. The ability to start a new course at the top of the next month allowed for continued progression. Moving through courses that I could schedule around my full-time job was instrumental in both the learning experience and the ability to maintain my work/life balance.”

    Melanie G., PsyD Program, 2022
