A Message From the Dean
I am delighted to welcome you to the College of the Arts at Cal State Fullerton – a dynamic, diverse, and unique learning environment combining scholarship, artistic expression, and intellectual curiosity into some of the highest-quality, pre-professional training in the visual and performing arts. As a leading CSU, we are an essential part of the cultural fabric of Southern California, providing transformational experiences in the arts to our students, community, and beyond.
In this living laboratory, we encourage student success through a wide range of opportunities for engagement and collaboration across all disciplines. Each year, the college’s students, faculty and staff work together to produce a wide array of exceptional concerts, exhibitions, lectures, workshops, and performances that draw more than 40,000 visitors to our first-rate performance facilities and numerous art galleries, both on and off-campus.
Our outstanding graduate and undergraduate degree programs serve more than 2,600 students in 61 areas of concentration supported by 84 full-time faculty members and 52 professional staff members. In addition to serving students within our college, we are committed to enhancing the artistic awareness of all CSUF students, offering hands-on creative and academic courses within the broader university’s liberal arts setting.
I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our academic programs, public performances and exhibitions, and the many other College of the Arts opportunities available to our campus and community.
