The birth of CEU at Malolos comes at a time when the national government is dispersing educational opportunities outside the heavily congested Metro Manila area.
Backed by seven decades of experience and expertise gained by CEU at Manila, the Malolos branch stands a good chance of producing a new breed of Filipinos who combined the best progressive and traditional Filipinism.
In response to the school dispersal of the national government in general, and the decongestion of the Metro Manila area in particular, Malolos, Bulacan was chosen as expansion site for CEU. Hence, CEU at Malolos was established in June 1978 at Km. 44 MacArthur Highway, Malolos, Bualcan.
CEU at Malolos subscribes to the same educational philosophy for which CEU at Mendiola was established. However, the school adopts its curriculum contents to the peculiar requirement of its setting in order that its students will find their training relevant to the needs and requirements of their immediate communities.
In 1924, the College of Liberal Arts was established. Courses offered were Pre-Law, Pre-Medicine, and General Preparatory courses. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences was renamed College of Arts and Sciences. The college underwent many changes to adopt itself to the changing needs of the time. The curriculum is designed to the peculiar requirement of its settings in order that the students will find their training relevant to the needs and requirements of their immediate communities.
