Welcome to California Southern University. We offer online university education to students worldwide who need the flexibility of distance learning. At CalSouthern, you can earn an online university degree from the comfort of your own home, with the personal attention and support of Faculty Mentors who care about your online university education.

California Southern University was established in the state of California in 1978 for the purpose of meeting the educational needs of working adults who could not attend traditional educational institutions due to professional, personal, or financial constraints. CalSouthern recognized that work, personal obligations, and lack of accessibility created an obstacle that prevented degree seeking adults from realizing their dreams.

CalSouthern responded to this need by providing access to high quality education through distance learning. As technology advanced, CalSouthern transitioned to offer online university degrees, and today, CalSouthern is a premier, accredited online university offering degrees to students worldwide. From initial offerings at the Associate's degree level, CalSouthern expanded to Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral online university degrees taught entirely through distance learning methodologies. Students from all over the world who are interested in pursuing online university degrees in business, psychology, liberal arts and law enroll at CalSouthern.
