Redlands-Loma Linda Patch
Feb. 23, 2022
A new certificate program in speech-language pathology at Cal State San Bernardino is now accepting applicants for the fall 2022 semester.
Offered through the Department of English in the College of Arts and Letters, this two-year master's preparatory certificate program will provide students with the prerequisite coursework needed to apply to most master's programs in speech-language pathology and communication sciences and disorders.
"The certificate is mainly to prepare [students] to go into a master's program in speech-language pathology," said Sunny Hyon, CSUSB professor of English. "In order to work as a speech-language pathologist in the U.S., you need to have a master's degree in it, so this is the first steppingstone."
Courses will be taught within several departments, including English, education and psychology, by faculty who have expertise in communication sciences and disorders and related fields.
"It really is an area of study that covers quite a few topics," said Erin Hall, CSUSB assistant professor of English, "so we bring in people from different fields."

Feb. 23, 2022
Three men who plotted to attack electricity substations in a white supremacist bid to sow national unrest pleaded guilty to providing material support to terrorism, the U.S. Justice Department announced Wednesday. Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, said targeting power plants and water supplies is a common aspiration among white supremacists.
“Within both the folklore and history of the racist far right’s plotting over decades has been the glorification of leaderless resistance style targeted plots and attacks, ranging from assassination, infrastructure and intimidation for the purpose of advancing an insurgency, in part through destabilization," he said by email.
