The Cypress College Department of History is a community of scholars who believes that historical perspective is fundamental to understanding the world in which we live. The systematic study of the human past helps provide meaning for people in the present. With this in mind, the department offers a great variety of courses to both majors and non-majors that cover all areas of the world in all time, from ancient to modern, and explore all aspects of history. We are committed to providing our students with a transformative education that is student centered, interdisciplinary, and rich in research opportunities, while also enhancing the critical skills of writing, thinking, and analysis necessary to comprehend the range of human experiences from an historical perspective. We in the History Department pride ourselves on our teaching and research, and we invite you to come study the world with us!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact David Halahmy the Chair of the History Department.
