The 175-acre hilltop campus of California State University, Los Angeles is at the heart of a major metropolitan city, just five miles from Los Angeles' civic and cultural center. More than 20,000 students and 185,000 alumni-with a wide variety of interests, ages and backgrounds--reflect the city's dynamic mix of populations. Six colleges offer nationally recognized science, arts, business, criminal justice, engineering, nursing, education, and humanities programs, among others, led by an award-winning faculty. The University received its most recent Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation in 1999 for the maximum term of 10 years. All eligible academic programs that have applied for accreditation from the relevant professional organizations have received accreditation.
The University offers over 60 graduate programs of study and graduate study has been a major part of the academic commitment of Cal State L.A. since its founding. Students who are engaged in graduate and Post-baccalaureate study constitute nearly one third of the total student body. Among enrolled students 62% are female while 38% are male, 53% are Hispanic, almost 22% are Asian American/Pacific Islander, 8% are African American, and 16% are white, non-Hispanic.
