Ramon S. Torrecilha, PH.D
Provost/Vice President of Academic Affairs
The academic programs of the University are organized in the College of Arts and Humanities, the College of Business Administration and Public Policy, the College of Natural and Behavioral Sciences and the College of Professional Studies. Within these administrative units, you will find a broad variety of both undergraduate and graduate programs designed to stimulate your intellectual curiosity and to prepare you for both a career and lifelong learning. The College of Extended and International Education within Academic Affairs offers additional opportunities through distance learning, managing on-line degree programs and Nursing and Business and Public Administration as well as extensive additional credit and non-credit offerings, certificate and training programs. Each of these units is described in more detail immediately following this section.
A vital academic resource for students is the University Library, which houses a variety of books, periodicals, and on-line databases to support students in their academic endeavors. For more information, see the “Campus Services” section of this catalog that describes the Library’s function and mission within the University.
The University recognizes that the college experience is not simply a matter of books and study. Thus, we offer a variety of academic and cultural programs, clubs and honor societies, and student activities designed to provide co-curricular support for student success. Significant opportunities for students to be involved with their professors in meaningful research efforts are widely available. In conjunction with our role as an active partner with the communities in our region, we offer a variety of service learning roles enabling students to put theory into practice. The unique diversity of this campus, recognized by national magazines and organizations, ensures that all CSUDH students will have the opportunity of learning and socializing with others of diverse ages, ethnicities, and races, thus preparing them to work effectively in a modern and global world.
The College of Arts and Humanities (CAH) is a vibrant place—a place for students to discover, to learn, and to combine the strengths and riches of knowledge and heritage with the energy and excitement of their future plans and promise. The College of Arts and Humanities offers students opportunities to delve into a rich group of majors and programs of emphasis including Africana Studies, Art and Design, Asian Pacific Studies, Chicana/o Studies, Communications, Dance, Digital Media Arts, English, History, Humanities, Interdisciplinary Studies/PACE, Labor Studies, Modern Languages, Music, Negotiation, Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding, Philosophy, Theater Arts, and Women's Studies.
The arts and humanities provide a context for our impulse to inquire and for our creative gifts. The arts and humanities console and provoke. They can invite spiritual and ethical reflections. They allow us to more fully celebrate our gifts. Engagement with the arts and humanities empowers learning, facilitates communication, and helps us to understand and develop our humanity. In a society where values are powerfully mediated by sight, sound, symbol, metaphor, and word, there is an urgent call for such engagement on all fronts.
The arts and
humanities play a powerful role in transforming and transporting cultural
values. Twenty-first century life and enterprise have become ever more
complex and diverse. Increasingly, creativity and imagination are
recognized as key to success in today's world.
It is no surprise that program offerings in the arts and humanities prepare students to lead in exciting and new developments in many arenas of life. Through the arts and humanities our students learn to decode, interpret, and understand the historical and associative messages represented in cultural artifacts, social values, and works of art. They also learn to analyze, critique, and draw reasoned conclusions from what they see and hear and to ask the questions pertaining to identity, conflict, and mediation that are necessary to preserve and advance an enlightened citizenry.
The College of Arts and Humanities is centered upon people. CAH faculty and staff members are accomplished and nurturing. Faculty scholars and artists are experts in their fields, and they are dedicated to mentoring students and developing their critical thinking. CAH faculty members prepare students for successful civic and professional engagement within a world that is fast paced and teeming with information. In short, sophisticated education for a complex world.
Believe in yourself and all things are possible. The College of Arts and Humanities exists for you. It is your home as you prepare for life.

Education is the key to the workplace in the 21st century. Access to data has exploded due to the digital and Internet revolutions. However, the abundance of data in no way assures good decision making. Data must be converted to useful information through knowledgeable analysis. Such analysis can only occur through educated and informed individuals and systems. Additionally, students need effective communication and interpersonal skills. The College of Business Administration and Public Policy provides students with the skills to compete in the global markets of the 21st century.
Our first priority is to graduate baccalaureate students who can assume the full responsibility of an entry-level professional position in the private and public sectors. Our second priority is to graduate master's students who can assume managerial positions in private and public sector organizations. Our third priority is to provide our graduates with the lifelong learning skills and motivation to grow and evolve as the economy changes. Graduates of the College of Business Administration and Public Policy find career positions in both large and small private and public sector firms, start their own businesses, work in local, state and federal governments and agencies, and in nonprofit organizations, and attend graduate programs and law school.
At the heart of our program in preparing students for the future is the faculty in the College of Business Administration and Public Policy. I proudly state that our faculty comprise a cadre of dedicated professors who are committed to teaching and remaining current with business, public administration, economics, and political science, research and theory. Faculty have been active as practitioners in their respective fields throughout their careers. This expertise greatly enriches the quality of classroom education as well as other related experiences, such as on-site tours, internships, guest speakers and enhanced job placement opportunities upon graduation.
Our faculty have designed a curriculum that has as its primary objective the transfer of "best practices" in business, government and not-for-profit organizations. As citizens and future managers or public administrators, students must develop the cultural sensitivities, technological and communication skills, negotiating techniques and team-building expertise to function in the diverse global economy that presents many opportunities for career success. The cultural, ethnic, gender, social and economic diversity within the faculty and student population of the CSUDH College of Business Administration and Public Policy provides students with a unique setting to develop the attributes and skills necessary to compete effectively.
The College believes that leaders do not just react to opportunity but, in fact, take actions that shape the opportunity. On the following pages, we describe the educational programs offered in the College of Business Administration and Public Policy, which are designed to shape the leaders that will create the world of opportunity in the 21st century.
We welcome inquiries and questions, and invite you to visit the campus and the College of Business Administration and Public Policy. We want to become your business, public administration, political science, or applied studies program of choice and prepare you for the ever-evolving and exciting world of opportunity that awaits you.

The core mission of the College of Natural and Behavioral Sciences is to prepare individuals for careers in scientific research, math/science education, or applied science fields such as medicine, dentistry, engineering, computer technology, and clinical psychology. Disciplines represented in the College include Anthropology, Behavioral Science, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Geography, Mathematics, Sociology, Physics, Political Science and Psychology. The College of Natural and Behavioral Sciences contributes to the general education program in three ways; first, through its offering of mathematics courses designed for students to develop basic quantitative skills, secondly, through the offering of non-major courses that introduce students to general scientific concepts and methods, and, thirdly, through the offering of upper-division integrative studies courses in Science, Math, and Technology (SMT) and Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS).
In an increasingly technological society, graduates with degrees in natural or computational sciences are in high demand. Public schools, in particular, are aggressively recruiting highly qualified teachers in math and science to prepare the next generation of scientists and science educators. Virtually every organization needs individuals who can coordinate their electronic communication networks, maintain their hardware and software, and manage large databases. State and Federal agencies allocate billions of dollars each year for biomedically related research of various kinds, including psychological research, ultimately in pursuit of cures for the numerous illnesses and diseases that plague humankind today and to save our environment. Still other Federal agencies award large grants for military and outer space research. Careers in the natural and behavioral sciences can be very lucrative and personally rewarding.
The College prides itself on being the home of a number of outstanding teaching award recipients. As teacher-scholars, they are devoted to teaching in both the lecture format as well as the hands-on laboratory format, where students learn firsthand what it means to "do science." To their credit, faculty in the College have received Federal training grants to provide support for minority undergraduate students in the sciences. The National Institutes of Health sponsored MBRS RISE and MARC USTAR programs are exemplary of this effort. Students graduating from RISE and USTAR continue in top Ph.D. programs at universities across the country and become part of the nation's biomedical workforce. In addition, through a collaboration with California State University-Fullerton, the Physics faculty at CSUDH have developed an Engineering Option in the Physics undergraduate program that prepares students for immediate entry into the Electrical Engineering graduate program at Fullerton.
In summary, the College of Natural and Behavioral Sciences offers a world of opportunities for its students.

The School of Education houses the Department of Liberal Studies, the Division of Teacher Education, and the Division of Graduate Education. The School offers professional programs that prepare teachers, specialists in curriculum, multicultural education, and educational technology, counselors, and school administrators for the urban, multicultural community. These programs are designed to offer high quality educational opportunities for students at the undergraduate, postbaccalaureate, masters, and advanced levels.
Liberal Studies is an interdisciplinary major for students who intend to become elementary classroom teachers. Courses leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies are designed to prepare future teachers to acquire content knowledge in the subject areas taught in elementary schools.

Student teaching and internship programs are offered through the Multiple Subject, Single Subject, and Education Specialist (special education) credential programs. The Multiple Subject Program prepares teachers for self-contained classrooms, usually kindergarten to grade six. The Single Subject Program is designed to prepare teachers for subject-specific teaching areas, generally in departmentalized classes at middle or high school. Credentials and a Master of Arts Degree are offered in Special Education. Educational professionals in Special Education are prepared to provide services to infants, children, and youth through the Early Childhood, Mild/Moderate, and Moderate/Severe Programs.
The Division of Graduate Education is designed to provide knowledge and understanding of the basic foundations and theories of education as well as advanced training in specific fields. The Division offers credentials in Educational Administration and Pupil Personnel Services - School Counseling. Options for the Master of Arts Degree in Education include Counseling, Educational Administration, Individualized Program, Multicultural Education, Curriculum and Instruction, and Technology Based Education.
Many of the courses in the School of Education are offered during the late afternoons and evenings to accommodate the needs of working professionals. Courses and field experiences are also offered at several Professional Development Schools that were developed in partnership with school districts in the Los Angeles basin. These urban educational environments provide opportunities for future professionals to work with culturally and linguistically diverse students.
