Thank you for your interest in the College of Health and Human Services at Cal State LA. The faculty, staff, and administrators in the College of Health and Human Services prepare human service professionals through the use of an interdisciplinary framework that values and promotes integration of teaching, research, policy and public service to become effective and innovative practitioners. Our graduates provide service and leadership on behalf of individuals, families, groups, and communities from a range of multicultural backgrounds that live and/or are situated in urban settings.
The College of HHS is comprised of seven professional disciplines that provide both undergraduate and master's level educational programs. As the College's name indicates some of our disciplines are health oriented (Communication Disorders, Public Health, Kinesiology and Nutritional Science, Nursing) and others are social services oriented (Child and Family Studies, Criminal Justice and Criminalistics, and Social Work). Our Centers and Institutes also follow this model of either a health or social services orientation Youth Agency Administration, Child Maltreatment and Family Violence Institute, California Forensic Science Institute, and the Applied Gerontology Institute). All programs address the needs of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. In these pages you will find information about our mission, our people, specific academic programs, centers and institutes. I encourage you to browse through this web page and to contact us by phone or email if you require any additional information, as you consider Cal State L.A. in your plans for educational and professional advancement.
