Areas of Study

Arts & Humanities & Design

The borders of your notes are always covered in sketches and ideas. It’s not that you can’t keep your mind on what you’re doing—it’s that you can’t keep it off what you haven’t yet created.


Education & Teaching

You love how someone’s eyes light up when they learn something new, and love the idea of inspiring a new generation. You’re ready to explore your academic interests on a path that also prepares you to teach them.


Environmental & Natural Resources

Rolling down the car window and getting lost in the landscape is your favorite part of any trip. The natural world has always been your classroom, and learning how all life fits together, your inspiration.


Global & Social Sciences

You’re a people watcher. You see a story in every person and want to dig deeper, learning more about the history, culture, and circumstance that led to the very moment you’re sharing.


Health & Life & Food Sciences

You see science intertwined in every part of a person’s life and this unique vision spurs you to improve people’s lives by taking proven ideas to the next level.


Land & Plant & Animal Sciences

You were the first to notice the tadpoles in the pond and the bird’s nest in the tree behind your house. But, more importantly, you always questioned how they got there—and how to protect them.


Math & Physical Sciences & Engineering

Your world is a jigsaw puzzle and you’re busy assembling the pieces. Your favorite question is: “But, how?” You never shy away from the big issues and find a thrill in the opportunity a problem presents.


Organization & Management & Enterprise

You see the invisible lines between people and their environments. You’re always thinking about the next step in the process and bringing people together to help achieve a common goal.


Health, Law, Veterinary, and Teaching

If you are interested in careers in health, law, veterinary, or teaching, you can prepare for them at CSU using what we call pre-professional advising tracks. These tracks are not majors, but instead provide guidance and academic preparation for a specific profession or educational goal. Learn more about the benefits of pre-professional advising tracks.
