About the University

CSU Dominguez Hills holds the Carnegie classification of Master’s L and is a federally recognized Hispanic-Serving Institution. Class sizes are small as compared with large research universities and classes are taught by the faculty, not by teaching assistants. Many of the university’s students are the first in their families to earn a university degree. While the university enrolls traditional full-time students, many students enroll part-time and attend late afternoon, evening and weekend classes because of work and family responsibilities.

CSU Dominguez Hills offers 45 baccalaureate degrees, 24 master’s degrees, and a number of certificate and credential programs. Enrollment exceeds 14,000 students and the student population is among the most ethnically and culturally rich in the nation: 45% Hispanic, 23% African American, 17% white and 12% Asian/Pacific Islanders.

The university is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the accrediting body for institutions of higher learning in the West. Eleven programs hold accreditations from national professional associations: business administration, clinical sciences, computer science, education, health science, music, nursing, occupational therapy, public administration, special education, and theatre arts.

The academic programs of the university are organized under the Colleges of Arts and Humanities, Business Administration and Public Policy, Extended and International Education, Natural and Behavioral Sciences, and Professional Studies, which includes the Schools of Education, Health and Human Services, and Nursing. While continuing to emphasize the liberal arts and sciences, professional programs offered at the undergraduate and graduate level, developed to serve the region’s workforce needs, are of great interest to students and prepare them for professions in a variety of industries.

Known for excellence in teacher education, nursing, psychology, business administration, and digital media arts, new degree programs include computer science, criminal justice, recreation and leisure studies, social work, and communication disorders.

The site remained in the continuous possession of the Dominguez family for seven generations - from its inception in 1794 to its acquisition by the state of California.

The Region

The South Bay is one of the most culturally, economically, and ethnically diverse areas in the United States, with a largely even distribution of the population with African, Asian/Pacific Islander, European, and Latino ancestry. The university is located in the city of Carson, a city of 93,000 residents and one of the many municipalities that border the city of Los Angeles. Cultural, performance and sports venues in downtown Los Angeles are about 15 minutes away and the South Bay beach communities are a few minutes away to the west and south. The Home Depot Center, a 125-acre sports center developed by AEG and home to Major League Soccer’s L.A. Galaxy and Chivas USA, is located on the CSUDH campus.

The campus is strategically located in the heart of a major technological, industrial and transportation complex in Southern California. This area includes the massive Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles – Southern California’s gateway to international commerce. The South Bay region is also home to aerospace, oil refinery, healthcare and automotive industries.
