Collaboration. Innovation. That’s CI.
At California State University Channel Islands (CI), you’ll never hear us say, “That’s how we’ve always done it.” We’re young—and innovative—which means we’re not stuck in outdated modes of teaching and learning.
Take our signature interdisciplinary approach to courses and programs. Because of it, you might take a course that combines, say, art with science or history with business. Here are just a few examples of collaboration:
- An economics professor worked with CI colleagues and the Santa Barbara Zoo to create The Zoo Class. Other collaborations have led to The Music Museum, The National Park, The Library, and The University.
- An economics and history professor collaborate to teach Business in China: Heritage and Change.
- An art history professor’s classes are linked with art history classes in Italy.
- Our biology department works closely with Amgen, Inc., a biotechnology pioneer in Thousand Oaks.
