Known nationally as "The Beach," CSU Long Beach provides academic programs and campus services that reflect its core academic purpose of graduating students with highly valued degrees. CSULB is also deeply engaged and invested in the local community. This can be seen in the number of small companies in the Long Beach area that have spun off from campus originated programs, like the business incubator program whereby faculty-staff-student research teams bring ideas to the marketplace through external funding. To learn more about the online courses and certificates available, visit the CSULB College of Continuing Education.
