Curriculum Development

The foundation of an outstanding university is an innovative and thoughtful curriculum developed by faculty who are experts in their fields. The Office of Graduate Studies and the Office of Undergraduate Studies and General Education work with the faculty to develop and refine courses and academic programs that will ensure that our students succeed not only in the classroom, but also in their professional careers. The information below will help you create and update curriculum. For information about Curriculog, the CSUF curriculum submission system, please see the "Training Information" below.

 For questions about graduate curriculum please contact the Interim Director of Graduate Studies, Dr. Joe Albert Garcia; for questions about undergraduate curriculum please contact the Assistant Vice President for Undergraduate Studies & General Education, Dr. Brent Foster.


Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP)

Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) are defined by the National Center for Education Statistics and may not be changed without explicit permission from the CSU Chancellor’s Office as it has many links to other areas that would be compromised. Contact the Academic Programs Office for more information.
