About Humboldt State University


Founded as a school to train teachers in 1913, Humboldt State University was one of the first campuses of what would become the 23-campus California State University (CSU). It is located in Arcata along the California North Coast where the Redwood forests meet the Pacific ocean. Humboldt is a beautiful campus with a friendly and welcoming community. More than 550 full- and part-time faculty members teach 8,700 students in the arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and professional programs. The University offers over 100 undergraduate, graduate and pre-professional programs.

Humboldt is known for its favorable student-faculty ratios, an emphasis on social and environmental responsibility, high rates of job placements and the rate at which students go on to earn doctoral degrees. Humboldt also boasts an unusually high proportion of graduates serving in the Peace Corps and managing public and nonprofit service organizations. Humboldt has consistently been cited among the top 10 percent of regional colleges and universities in the United States by a number of national publications, including U.S. News & World Report, Money, and Making A Difference College Guide.
