    Biographical / Historical

    The College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences (CLASS) is one of nine colleges at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. It was originally known as the School of Arts, beginning in the 1967-1968 academic year. Prior to that, course offerings such as Music fell under the Arts and Sciences Division. The School of Arts became the College of Arts for the 1988-1989 school year and, in the Fall of 1995, the College of Arts again changed its name to the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences. As part of the change, the Department of Art transferred to the College of Environmental Design.
    As of March 2019, the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences has 10 departments: Communication, Economics, English and Modern Languages (formerly the Department of English and Foreign Languages until Fall 2018), Geography and Anthropology, History, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology, and Theatre and New Dance (formerly two departments: Theatre and Institute of New Dance and Cultures). The Kinesiology and Health Promotion Department also used to be part of the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences but that transferred to the College of Science for the 2011-2012 academic year.
