The Mike Curb College of Arts, Media,
and Communication Records consist of materials produced by the college and its
previous iterations throughout CSUN's history. Records include materials from the
Dean's Office as well as from various departments within the college and include
correspondence, event materials including tickets and programs, and exhibition catalogs.
Performance materials from the Music Department and the Theatre Department’s Teenage
Drama Workshop are particularly well represented.
The Mike Curb College of Arts, Media, and Communication was first organized in 1963 at
San Fernando Valley State College as the School of Fine Arts and Professional Studies.
In 1972, when the campus became California State University, Northridge, the majors of
the School of Fine Arts were split into two new schools. The School of Arts was formed
from the Departments of Art, Theatre, and Music, while the Departments of Health,
Journalism, Physical Education, and Recreation were placed in the new School of
Communication and Professional Studies.
