Degree Tracks

The History Department has developed a major that can be completed by taking one of three tracks:

Teaching History (Track A) - designed for students wanting to be history teachers.

Research and Graduate School Preparation (Track B) - designed for students interested in any of the other fields open to history majors.

Public and Oral History (Track C) - designed to provide skills and training in historical methodologies or public and oral history professionals in museums, archives, libraries, historic houses,etc.

Each of the above tracks includes courses that provide surveys of World and U.S. history, and an introduction to the nature of historical study. Please consult the CSUSB catalog for details on course descriptions and courses required.

Students are encouraged to meet with a departmental advisor if they have any questions about their degree program. Note: Students are not restricted to the assigned faculty member, but can meet with any faculty member in the department.
