Current Cal State LA Undergraduate Students

Are you a current undergraduate student thinking about declaring a major or minor within the College of Arts and Letters? View the links below to explore our undergraduate degree programs.

Currently, two of our majors, Television, Film, and Media Studies and Communication Studies, have major specific criteria. This means that there is more demand for entry into these majors than there are spots available and students must meet major specific requirements to gain entry into these majors. Please note that it is highly recommended that students meet with an Arts and Letters advisor to declare themselves as a pre-major prior to making the decision to complete major specific requirements. In most cases, students must be able to gain entry into the major by 60 units. To view current major specific requirements for Communication Studies and Television, Film, and Media Studies, click here.
