We Give Active Learning a Whole New Meaning


Our graduates are able to solve problems and communicate effectively. Our programs emphasize critical thinking, communication, and a breadth of knowledge - the building blocks for lifelong learning.

Our competitive advantage is providing small class sizes, which allows us to provide students with realistic settings for developing their practical skills. Our students learn to use the latest technology to enhance their skills.

Humboldt State offers one of California's best programs in Recreation Administration — career-focused, hands-on learning in a natural setting that Outside magazine called a "Dream Town" for outdoor play.

Kinesiology labs (Human Performance, Biomechanics, and Behavioral) provide opportunities to learn to analyze movement, conduct physical fitness assessments, and plan health and wellness programs.

Because we are a small department, students and faculty have time to meet regularly with students. Our faculty members are available to work with students individually, and they participate in student club activities, internships, and help provide key professional and practical experiences.
