About California State University, Bakersfield

Located in the city Bakersfield in the San Joaquin Valley of California, California State University-Bakersfield (CSUB) opened in 1970 and became the 19th member of the California State University system, which now has 23 member institutions.

The university has two campuses – the main 375-acre campus in Bakersfield and a satellite campus in the nearby Antelope Valley – which together host over 9,200 students.

The majority of CSUB students study at undergraduate level although there are master’s courses available, as well as the professional development, certificate, and degree programs available from CSUB’s Extended University.

Both campuses enjoy a prime location in the heart of southern California. Los Angeles is just over 100 miles from the main Bakersfield campus, giving students the option to explore one of America’s most energetic and vibrant cities.

Bakersfield itself has a lot to offer, with a rich culture and located a short distance from the Pacific coast.

With more than 85 student organisations and a well-established set of sports teams, known as the Roadrunners, there are plenty of opportunities for students outside of academia. The Roadrunners compete in the NCAA Division I, with seven male and ten female sports teams currently featured.

There are four main academic schools at CSUB – Arts and Humanities, Business and Public Administration, Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering, and Social Sciences and Education – which between them offer more than 50 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.

Notable former students include Roy Ashburn, California State Senator, slam poet Big Poppa E, and MMA and UFC champion Tito Ortiz.
