The cost of attendance is an important factor in determining student financial aid eligibility. The Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is calculated from the FAFSA data by the federal processor, represents the amount the student and his or her family are expected to contribute to the COA. The EFC is subtracted from the COA to determine the student's financial Need. Financial aid is then awarded to help offset the student's COA. If the financial aid is not enough to cover the Need, then the remaining amount is considered Unmet Need. It is important to note that a student is not required to have financial Need to be eligible to receive Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans, PLUS loans, or merit-based scholarships. [-]

CSU Bakersfield offers a pre-engineering program. Pre-engineering students attend CSUB for 2-3 years then transfer to an engineering school where they complete the upper-division curriculum and where they will graduate with a degree in engineering. The CSUB pre-engineering program is a generic program, suitable for transfer to any engineering school and into any field of engineering. While transfer to other CSU schools are the most seamless, many CSUB students transfer to UC schools, to private schools, and to schools all over the country. Admission There are no special admission requirements or procedures to enter the CSUB pre-engineering program. Like all CSUB students, you apply for admission using the CSU Mentor site, students must obey all university rules regarding admission deadlines. Once admitted, you can be in the pre-engineering program merely by seeing a pre-engineering advisor and taking the recommended classes.

Current application filing statuses may differ from each CSU campus. Applicants are encouraged to apply early during available filing periods, pay close attention to the requirements for admission, as well as the deadlines for submitting an application. CSUB Advantages and Disadvantages The primary advantage of CSUB is for Kern County residents, they can make progress towards an engineering degree without long commutes or having to move out of Kern County. Also, CSUB engineering classes are generally fairly small and students often receive a more personalized education than if they were at a larger school. The largest disadvantage is that students will be graduating from another school and will have to satisfy all that school's graduation requirements, which often includes lower division courses unavailable at CSUB. This means that transfer students typically require one or two more quarters to earn their degree compared to students attending the engineering school throughout their college career. Cost of Attendance Cost of Attendance (COA) is a figure calculated annually by financial aid offices that represents an estimate of the total cost (including tuition, fees, books & supplies, room & board, transportation, and misc. personal expenses) for a full-time student to attend their university during the academic year.

Economics at CSUB Program Description Economics is the science of decision making under scarcity and of organizing the production and distribution of goods and services within and between nations. Knowledge of economics can make a significant contribution to citizenship, cultural and intellectual development. Economics is an analytical discipline that reinforces skills such as decision-making, making logical deductions and statistical inferences, as well as collecting and analyzing data. Economic analysis is the process of applying economic tools and the economic way of thinking to real- world problems. The program's curriculum provides a thorough understanding of economic theory and applies the theory to evaluating public policies, analyzing the external economic environments of organizations, providing decision support, determining tradeoffs among alternatives, and formulating tactical and strategic decisions. CSUB Economics graduates pursue careers in diverse areas such as: government and public policy, business, agriculture, banking and financial services, international trade or diplomacy, teaching, and the law. The Bachelor of Science in Economics is well suited for students who are considering making the bachelor's degree a terminal degree. However, it also is an excellent foundation for students who are considering the MBA, MPA, or another professional graduate program. Graduates of this degree program develop breadth in a complementary area of business or public administration and are equipped with the knowledge and skills to productively contribute to employers in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Students intending to pursue a master's degree in economics should complete a calculus course or two and additional statistics and research methods courses. Students who intend to pursue a doctoral program in economics should complete the calculus sequence and course work in linear algebra, differential equations, probability theory, and mathematical statistics. In addition to the B.S. degree in Economics, the Economics Department offers an Economics Concentration within the B.S. in Business Administration, an Economics Minor, and various courses fulfilling university-wide requirements (General Education Area D2, Upper Division Theme 3, Gender, Race and Ethnicity). Additional information on economics as an academic discipline, the economics curriculum, and careers for undergraduate economics majors can be found by following our Website links or visiting with the economics faculty. CSUB Ranked #10 on The Economist's College Rankings The Economist’s first-ever college rankings are based on a simple, if debatable, premise: the economic value of a university is equal to the gap between how much money its students subsequently earn, and how much they might have made had they studied elsewhere.

This applied experience may involve working in a psychology-related position in the community for pay or as a volunteer, serving as a teaching assistant, or getting involved as a research assistant. Students also gain valuable experience in the science of psychology through a carefully planned sequence of research methods courses.

Many students continue to pursue their research interests outside the classroom under the guidance of faculty research mentors.

The Bachelor of Arts in Sociology emphasizes the systematic study of human behavior in social groups. It focuses on how people coordinate their activities to achieve both individual and collective goals. Sociology is different from the other social and behavioral sciences in two important ways. First, it places primary importance on the social group within the larger society. Second, it seeks to explain the broad range of human behavior as it is influenced by the social context. Thus, sociology studies the major issues of our times and seeks to understand their complexity and predict their future. It investigates how patterns of social activity originate, what sustains them, why they take one form rather than another, and how they change. Depending on the particular interest of the student, an appropriate minor area of study is selected in consultation with the student’s advisor. In lieu of the traditional minor, the Department also offers a concentration in either Ethnic Studies or in Urban Studies and Planning. Qualified undergraduates are encouraged to seek opportunities as teaching assistants and as research assistants with the Institute for Social and Community Research. Career opportunities for sociology majors include a variety of agencies at the federal, state, and municipal levels, as well as with both private non-profit and private for-profit organizations. Mission Statement Our goal is to advance students’ intellectual preparation in macro and micro sociological concepts through rigorous, substantive, theoretical, and methodological coursework. The program provides opportunities for praxis oriented internships, and on-going and continuous engagement with the program faculty’s teaching and research activities. Our graduates will have the personal and scholarly skills needed to face the challenges associated with social change, diversity of persons and ideas, and an evolving global economy. Requirements for the Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Major in Sociology The Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Sociology requires a minimum of 180 units which includes courses for the major and minor and courses for the other university-wide graduation requirements: General Education, American Institutions, First-Year Experience, Gender-Race-Ethnicity, Upper Division Writing, and Foreign Language. To fulfill the requirements for the major in sociology, the student must complete courses acceptable to the Department, including at least nine at the upper-division level. Typical course patterns for graduation can be found on the department Web Site.
