Department Statement

The History programs at Cal State East Bay seek to present the study of History as an enjoyable and fruitful endeavor incorporating the essential elements of liberal learning. The programs focus on students’ acquisition of knowledge, cultivation of perspective, and development of skills in written and oral communication and in critical thinking. We aim to develop students’ concern for enduring human values and appreciation of diverse peoples and traditions, as well as to engage students in a rigorous and compelling understanding of how the past informs the present.
