For 75 years, California State University Long Beach (CSULB) has championed personal transformation and professional triumph. That’s why Go Beach is much more than a catchphrase—it’s the spark that empowers and emboldens students and the community. The Beach enriches students’ lives through globally informed, high-impact educational experiences with superior teaching, research, creative activity, and action for the public good.

California State University Long Beach is home to one of the largest publicly funded art schools in the country. The College of Arts at California State University Long Beach is a community. More than 3,000 majors and minors students study within the College of the Arts, working with faculty, staff, and guest artists in the School of Art, the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music, and the departments of Dance, Design, Film and Electronic Arts, and Theatre Arts. Additionally, the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center and the Carolyn Campagna Kleefled Contemporary Art Museum are valuable resources for the campus and Greater Long Beach region and are proudly part of the College of the Arts.

In the College of the Arts, additional diversities of talents and skills, prior training and exposure, approaches to teaching and learning, professional aspirations, scholarly inquiry, and creative endeavor are embraced. The College of the Arts community draws upon this great diversity as a source of strength, wealth, depth, and breadth. It recognizes that respect, openness, and inclusiveness are essential to creating a productive and constructive place for its students, faculty, and staff to teach, learn, study, create, and expand their fields.
