Humboldt State University


Humboldt State University emphasizes hands-on undergraduate research and intensive faculty mentoring of students. Founded in 1913, Humboldt is a coeducational residential campus located 90 minutes south of the Oregon border in the rural redwoods on Northern California's Pacific Coast. It offers 49 baccalaureate degree majors, 84 minors, 12 graduate programs, and 21 credential programs. Field research often supplements classroom instruction, and academic pursuits are melded with the unique terrain and climates of the Pacific Northwest. Humboldt offers a broad liberal arts curriculum that includes teaching credentials, professional studies, independent research, service learning, leadership minors, community internships and volunteer projects, and art and museum management. Humboldt State offers the only Native American studies program in the 23-campus California State University system and is a leader in Peace Corps recruitment.
