The California State University System recognized a need for a college in the San Joaquin Valley region, so in 1970, California State University Bakersfield, the 19th member of the University System, opened.
CSU Bakersfield awards undergraduate and graduate degrees, including Master’s degrees. CSU Bakersfield houses four academic colleges:
School of Business and Public Administration
School of Social Sciences and Education
School of Arts and Humanities
School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering
Meeting the demands for distance learning programming, CSU Bakersfield also offers online degrees, housed in the Extended University Division. The Extended University Division manages extension programming and certificates, lifelong learning for adults, regional degree programs, along with the online campus. Online degree programs vary from complete distance education coursework to blended online and on-site formatting.
