The Department of History provides opportunities to study the development and interaction of the world’s cultures. In addition to a broad curriculum in local, national, and world history, the department offers a wide variety of special topics courses. The program thus contributes to the attainment of intellectual and cultural objectives of a liberal-arts education appropriate to careers in law, journalism, business, government service, librarianship, and teaching, or to advanced study.

The department offers the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in History and minors in History and in Labor and Working Class Studies for students majoring in other areas.

The department coordinates the Teacher Preparation option of the history major, approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the Single Subject credential in Social Science, which is designed for students seeking a Single Subject Credential in Social Science.

The Department of History administers a minor in Religious Studies designed to explore the forms and traditions of religion that have appeared in human culture.
