Message from The Chair

Welcome to the CSUDH History Department web page. If you follow the links to the left, you will find information about our mission, academic programs, faculty, students, and more. 

The History Department offers two major degree programs: a forty-five-unit Bachelor of Arts (BA) in History and a sixty-three unit BA History Education Option. The forty-five-unit degree prepares graduates to pursue a variety of professional careers. The sixty-three unit program is recommended for students who intend to become social science/history teachers in grades 7-12. In particular, I encourage you to explore our online student journal, The Toro Historical Review, to see the kinds of exciting research our students produce. 

If you would like to learn more, you may make an appointment to visit the History Department Office (LaCorte Hall A342). Contact our Administrative Coordinator, Raúl Rubio, at 310.243.3328 for details.

Again, thank you for your interest in the CSUDH History Department. We hope that you will join us. 

Dr. Laura Talamante
Chair, History Department
