Four Colleges One University

College of Science Explore the mysteries of dark matter in physics; pioneer changes in medicine with chemistry; design new software through computer sciences; or reimagine the skyline in engineering. The College of Science is where innovation and creativity are tested against principles of hands-on experimentation, research and collaboration between students and faculty. A 5,500-square-foot molecular research and environmental analysis lab is the university’s largest renovation of research and teaching space and will help faculty prepare undergraduates for science careers. Our science, technology, engineering and math graduates go on to break boundaries at forwardthinking, in-demand Bay Area companies, such as Tesla, GoogleX, NASA, and Caltrans.

Anchored in the liberal arts and sciences, Cal State East Bay prepares students to be lifelong learners ready to succeed in the competitive workplace. The four colleges offer ample opportunities for students to collaborate with faculty, in places such as the new molecular research lab, the Center for Student Research and the kinesiology exercise lab.

College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences From anthropology and environmental studies to theater arts and criminal justice, the college offers 21 arts, social sciences and humanities degrees that teach students how to think critically and creatively. Whether you want a future in politics, the arts, human development, or any of our many majors, the college connects students to experienced professionals working in the field, and encourages complex thinking strategies that consider issues of social justice.

College of Education and Allied Studies Our undergraduate programs in kinesiology and physical education and hospitality, recreation, and tourism (HRT) break new ground in the fields of health and wellness. We offer dynamic programs that maximize new technologies and push students to consider diverse perspectives in their studies. Our kinesiology classes look at physical movement through a broad lens of mental, emotional, social and historical contexts, and our HRT students use boundless fieldwork opportunities to develop sustainable solutions that have global impact. The college is also home to future teachers, who can begin working in the classroom without having to wait to start a credential program.

College of Business and Economics The college has been accredited for 40 years by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and  houses four departments: Accounting and Finance, Economics, Management and Marketing. Filled with diverse faculty and students who bring different perspectives to questions of global importance, classes offer students the chance to engage in real-world projects with local companies. Undergraduate degrees in areas such as business administration and economics give students the foundation to make critical decisions with ethical integrity, while also focusing on specialties such as marketing, IT management and entrepreneurship, or government, international trade and finance.
