We offer programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Master of Science, as well as, several degree minors, certificate programs, and opportunities to enter a dietetic internship. We are the largest Family and Consumer Sciences program on the west coast and are accredited by the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences. In addition, our option areas also hold a variety of discipline-specific accreditations.
We are currently the largest department on the CSULB campus, with over 2200 majors, minors, graduate and certificate students. Our faculty, many of whom are noted in their fields, are devoted to serving and teaching students. Our valued lecturers have vast experience in their field and enthusiastically share this information in the classroom.
Our mission is to prepare leaders for the family and consumer sciences professions. We are an exemplary, comprehensive and integrative unit in the California State University system that focuses on teaching, scholarship and service to and about individuals, families, and communities in a diverse, dynamic society.

The didactic program in dietetics (DPD) will be accepting applications from CSULB DPD graduates for the Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway (ISPP) program in the spring, after DICAS matching. ISPP programs were developed in coordination with ACEND to offer more opportuniteis to DPD graduates for supervised practice hours. The ISPP at CSULB accepts only CSULB Nutriton and Dietetics graduates who have not been matched to internships through DICAS for at least two-rounds. For more information or questions about the application process, there is an informational board located upstairs in the FCS building, near the Child Care center. Or please contact the director, Emily Haynes, email@example.com.
My name is Jonathon Bolin and I am the current ASI Vice-President at CSULB. I may have emailed you earlier regarding my effort to establish a community garden at CSULB. The project has moved along greatly in last two months; we have secured funding, designs, and a ½ acre space to begin our community garden. The main thing we need now to accomplish this project is volunteers. We plan to break ground and build the garden in late March/early April. I am reaching out to faculty in hopes that we can build a volunteer base comprised of faculty, staff, and students. I have attached a simple poster with information for students. It is my hope that you can forward this out to your department (faculty and students) announcing our “call to arms” for volunteers. Our volunteer coordinator, Nayiri Baghdassarian, is copied on this email. If you have any other creative ideas on how to involve your students, please do not hesitate to contact me. Feel free to announce this volunteer opportunity in your classes. Any help would be greatly appreciated when it comes to rallying the student body and spreading awareness about our efforts.
If you could please forward this email out to your faculty members that would be great! My contact information is listed below if they wish to connect with this effort.
Also, if you, or anyone in the campus community you know, would like to reserve a garden plot (4’ x 10’) please contact me regarding pricing and availability.
Thank you greatly,
