CSU Channel Islands is proud to offer the first two Z-Major’s in the CSU, and possibly in the nation!
Communications and Early Childhood Studies will be offering the first Z-Majors in the CSU beginning Fall 2018.
What is a Z-Major?
“Z-Majors” – with Z referring to zero textbook costs – offer CI students a pathway through all the required courses within their major, without requiring the purchase of a textbook. This is accomplished by replacing traditional textbooks with OERs, e-textbooks, library materials, government reports, online courseware, open access journals, etc.
