CSUSB listed in top programs graduating Latinos in communication, journalism and related programs

Cal State San Bernardino has been ranked among the top 25 communication, journalism and related programs in the country graduating Hispanics, according to rankings from The Hispanic Outlook on Higher Education magazine.
