Academic Lens—College of Agriculture

Welcome to CSU Chico!

This is CSU Chico's University Catalog, your virtual introduction to one of America’s finest universities.

The catalog is “the online, accessible source of authoritative information on admission and program requirements.” It is also a gateway, introducing students, faculty, staff, and community members to the Chico Experience through the lens of academics. Throughout this site, you will learn about the people, programs, events, and services that set this institution apart as a leader in student learning and success.

Best regards,

Catalog Staff


A new partnership between the divisions of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and University Advancement inspired the creation of "The Academic Lens"—a glimpse into CSU, Chico’s rigorous academics! The Academic Lens spotlights unique academic programs, courses, or events offered by CSU, Chico academic departments. Each of the campus' seven colleges and the Center for Regional and Continuing Education is represented in The Academic Lens' rotating content. Each time you visit the University Catalog homepage, one of eight features will appear below. Links to the full story and to additional academic department information follow each snippet.
Thank you, and please enjoy!
