A&L Undergraduate Policies
Office of Undergarduate Studies

The College of Arts and Letters is proud of the undergraduate programs that we currently offer in our eight departments, along with several certificate programs that are growing in popularity. Minors are also available in most of our programs.  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 undergraduate programs have chosen many pathways to their personal and professional success. We have a strong history of our undergraduate students getting into some of the top graduate programs around the nation including many of our own graduate programs—both in the College of Arts and Letters and other colleges here at Cal State LA.  Our undergraduate students also go on to complete teaching credentials.  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 undergraduate level education that students have received in the College of Arts and Letters at Cal State LA.
