Best Practices for declaring your new History major: 

  • Familiarize yourself with History's degree requirements on our Undergradaute Program page or through the official catalog description for "History" at CSUF for information about the department.
  • Speak with an advisor in the history department to discuss major requirements and/or pre-reqs, concentration choices, and career options.  
  • Be prepared to complete a 5-10 minute “Declaring Your Major” survey before obtaining the drop signature.
