Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Education, Health and Human Services or CEHHS as we are known on campus!

Passion. Innovation. Excellence.

These are the hallmarks of our college, an exciting and exhilarating hub of learning at Cal State San Marcos. Under the CEHHS umbrella, you will find the School of Education, the School of Nursing, and the School of Health Sciences and Human Services. Our wide array of undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate programs prepare students for rewarding and purposeful careers in education, nursing, health care, social work, speech pathology and kinesiology. Our programs also lay a solid groundwork for students to pursue advanced degrees and careers in academia. Our alumni have been successful in their chosen fields and making a great impact on the lives of people in the region and beyond.

At CEHHS, we offer our students hands-on learning opportunities in collaborative classroom settings. We encourage them to be critical thinkers and creative problem solvers. I am proud of our faculty members, some of the finest in the country. They are innovators and thought leaders in their fields who engage students in dynamic and interactive classrooms. 

We provide easily accessible support services to help our students reach their fullest potential and we make every effort to foster their success in college. Our diverse student body is active on campus, in the community and in the world through service projects, internships and study abroad programs. 

Please feel welcome to contact us at CEHHS.  I invite you to explore our website, contact us by e-mail and visit us on campus to discover what we have to offer you. We look forward to hearing from you!
