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
