Instructions for Updating Your Program Description

Updates due by May 19, 2023 for Fall 2024

What to include 

The description is up to you, but here are a few ideas of what can help to catch a student's eye, provide key program information, and encourage them to apply!

  • Brief description of the program 
  • Link(s) to websites with additional information
  • A link to a video
  • Career opportunities
  • List of options or specializations
Example: Linguistics

The Linguistics Major at CSUSM provides students with a comprehensive study of the core areas of linguistics and the opportunity to specialize in one of three areas: Language, Culture, and Society; Speech and Language Sciences; and Language Studies. The core curriculum is designed to give students a strong foundation in the general study of linguistics, while the specialization options allow students the opportunity to focus their linguistics study in an area that aligns with their interests as well as prepares them for future graduate work or careers.

Choosing a Linguistics Concentration

You may choose from three concentrations in the B.A. Linguistics Program:

  • Language, Culture, and Society
  • Speech and Language Sciences
  • Language Studies

You must select one of the three concentrations in the application for admission, but you are not locked into that concentration. All three concentrations share the same lower-division curriculum, so you may switch between them at any point during your first two years at CSUSM, as you learn more about the major and your specific interests.
