For the third year in a row, Cal State Fullerton is again first in the state and has moved up to fifth in the nation for awarding bachelor’s degree to Hispanic students, according to Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education‘s Top 100 listing, published in its May 18 issue.
While Titans lead the way, the California State University had 20 campuses ranked among the top 100 list, with eight in the top 25 of the list.
In addition, several of Cal State Fullerton’s individual degree programs were also highly ranked:
• First in communication/journalism
• Fourth in education
• Sixth in psychology
• Sixth in homeland security/law enforcement/firefighting
• Eighth in visual and performing arts
• Ninth in ethnic/cultural/gender studies
The U.S. Department of Education identifies CSUF as a Hispanic-Serving Institution, a designation tied to the university’s student population, which makes the campus eligible for federal funding targeted to expanding educational opportunities for Hispanic students and improving their graduation rate.
