Message from the Dean, Mitchell T. Maki

Dean MakiWelcome to the College of Professional Studies! As you explore our website, I am confident that you will find an exciting array of professions and disciplines which address the ongoing health, mental health, and human service issues facing our society. The College currently offers programs in Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Health Sciences, Clinical Lab Sciences, Radiation Technology, Gerontology, Marriage and Family Therapy, Kinesiology, Recreation and Leisure Studies, Human Services, and Orthotics and Prosthetics. We anticipate the launching of a Social Work program, a Child Development program, and an Exercise Science Program in the next year. Beyond the array of degree programs that we offer, the College of Health and Human Services has been cutting edge in how it delivers its programs. The Nursing program has offered complete MSN and BSN degree programs online for the last five years. The other degree programs are quickly moving in this direction and currently offer some courses online along with the on-campus courses.

The mission of the College of Professional Studiesis to enhance the health, mental health, and social needs of the human population. This goal is accomplished through an interdisciplinary preparation of professionals who can deliver quality and comprehensive services within a multiethnic, multicultural, and multiclass society. Given our campus location – just south of Los Angeles, we must provide programs that address needs and issues we all face as individuals, families and communities living in a diverse urban environment. Additionally, our online programs require that we address issues relevant to rural and international health care. We teach our students how to learn, grow and thrive academically, professionally and personally. Our graduates are certain about the contributions they can make to society in their chosen profession.

In this website you will find information about our faculty, staff and students, and specific academic programs. I thank you for your interest in exploring professions that help to enrich the lives of others in society. I look forward to the opportunity for CSU Dominguez Hills to play a pivotal role in your educational, professional, and personal advancement.

Wishing you the best in the pursuit of your professional and academic aspirations,

Mitchell T. Maki
