Welcome to the Office of Academic Programs
The Office of Academic Programs ensures the undergraduate and graduate degrees, minors, post-baccalaureate certificate programs support the University’s Learning Outcomes and the Meaning of a CSUSB Degree in service to all students. We are forward-thinking and strive to meet all learners' future needs by developing creative solutions and supporting innovative programs in collaboration with faculty.
The Office oversees academic program planning, review, assessment, and accreditation. Academic Programs offers faculty professional development in support of assessment and continuous improvement of educational programs, general education, writing-intensive programs, and high-impact practices. We are committed to expanding all learners' opportunities to engage in high-quality, high-impact practices and ensuring that academic programs promote intellectual achievement, inclusivity, and equity.
The Office is responsible for creating the Academic Calendar, the University's Course Catalog, the course schedule, and operationalizing relevant Title Five California Code of Regulations, WSCUC requirements, and CSU policies and procedures.
Meaning of a CSUSB Degree
At CSUSB, students engage in diverse ways of knowing and contributing to the world. Through their degree programs and co-curricular activities, they grow intellectually, creatively, and professionally. Our students explore the paradigms and knowledge reservoirs of various disciplines and cultures, discover and make meaning in new ways, and integrate and apply multiple perspectives to solving problems. Often the first in their families to earn a college degree, our graduates are transformed by their high-value CSUSB education and by the resilience, reimagining, and reflection that it asks of them. They take pride in their degrees and leave the campus as lifelong learners. As they pursue their careers of choice, our alumni achieve social mobility and success in ever-changing professional and public sectors. They are skilled at collaborating with people from diverse backgrounds and leading positive change for social justice, both locally and globally. In all of these ways, CSUSB graduates are able to live empathetic, fulfilled lives that create opportunities for themselves, their communities, and their world.
