At Humboldt State, learning isnt limited to sitting in a classroom and taking notes. Our students take that knowledge and apply it in the real world by doing their own seismic readings, photography, wildlife studies, social work and more.
Humboldt State is a public institution and part of the 23-campus California State University system. We have just over 8,200 students and 550 faculty members.

Programs in natural resources and sciences are nationally known, while visual and performing arts are also popular areas of study. Throughout the curriculum, students find a long-standing commitment to social and environmental responsibility.
