Academic Decathalon College Credit Program

Since 1994 the College of Arts and Humanities has served as co-host for the Fresno County Academic Decathlon.  In addition to hosting the competition event at Fresno State on the first Saturday in February, the College offers a series of academic workshops to students participating in the competition through a Humanities 1T course, enabling them to earn college credit.  Workshops include Art, Music, Literature, Speech, Interview, Social Sciences, Economics, Science, and the Super Quiz topic that varies annually. 

Each year, a dozen faculty presenters from many different departments participate and conduct the workshops.  Each year this program brings over 300 of the region’s brightest and most highly motivated juniors and seniors to campus, providing them with a first-hand experience to some of our most accomplished faculty.
