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 exiting research our students produce. 

If you would like to learn more, you may visit the History Department Office (LaCorte Hall A342) or you may contact our Administrative Coordinator, Raúl Rubio, at 310.243.3328

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

Dr. Christopher Monty
Chair, History Department
