As a history student you think, create, and act globally. You see the world as your textbook and you dance to your own tune, be it a popular hit from this week’s top 20 or a two-string melody from the 5th century. You study the past and the present simultaneously, and for you making inferences is an everyday activity. You are a critical reader, or a critical reader in training and most importantly, you belong here.
The Department of History at CSUF fosters an engaged community of student learners who are interested in becoming tomorrow’s innovators and community leaders. Our students pursue diverse career paths including but not limited to: K-12 teaching and administration, community college and university professorate, public history and social entrepreneurship, library and archive science, foundation and development giving, law, policy analysis and professional research consultancy, medicine or government service work. You will also work with outstanding and diverse faculty who will take the time to get to know you, and help you fashion an education that makes sense for your future career needs and interests.
The department offers undergraduate students both a Bachelor of Arts in History and a History minor.
