History Department

Welcome to the History Department of California State University, Chico, located on the top floor of Trinity Hall in the heart of the campus. We are a community engaged in that most serious and intellectually rewarding of pursuits, the study of the past, the living past, that continues to shape our present and our future.

In this Web site you will find information about both our course offerings, how to become a history major or minor, as well as about our graduate program and our certificate in public history. Browsing our faculty biographies you will discover why our faculty is one of the most honored on campus for its scholarship, teaching, and service. You can also learn about our vibrant student organizations.

Of course, please feel free as well to stop by Trinity Hall and visit us.

Watch videos of recent History Public Lectures, Cowden Memorial Speakers, and History Roundtable discussions.
