Support Social Sciences and Education

At The School of Social Sciences and Education (SSE) at California State University, Bakersfield, our students seek sensible, transcendent, transformational change for their lives and those of others in the value of their education. Becoming catalysts for change is their aim and inspiration in meeting the challenge of today and tomorrow.

Through our outstanding undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, SSE provides the teachers, counselors, therapists, police officers, and social workers who serve Kern County and beyond. We also prepare future leaders, professionals, researchers, and community advocates who enhance the quality of life for us all.

Our graduates truly do make a difference — thank you for supporting their academic and professional journey.
