The College of Arts and Letters is proud of the graduate programs that we currently offer in seven of our eight departments, along with several certificate programs that are growing in popularity. Each of our programs provides high quality educational experiences with faculty who are distinguished in their fields of specialty. We are also proud that students who complete our Masters programs have chosen many pathways to their personal and professional success. We have a strong history of our Master’s students getting into some of the top doctoral programs around the nation. Our graduates are also working in education as teachers, counselors and administrators. They are working in industry, media, government and a host of occupations in California, the region, the nation, and internationally; fields of study, performance, and public service that have placed a high value on the graduate level education that students have received in the College of Arts and Letters at Cal State LA.
