Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The records of the College of Humanities consist of materials created by the College and its academic departments. Records include those of the Office of the Dean as well as various departments within the college. Most represented departments contain limited material however, the Chicana and Chicano Studies Department is particularly well represented. The collection includes information on academic minors and student activities, event fliers and programs, annual reports, and meeting minutes.
The College of Humanities began at San Fernando Valley State College as the School of Letters and Science. In 1972, when California State University, Northridge was established, the School of Letters and Science was split and the School of Humanities was born. The school was renamed the College of Humanities sometime in the 1990s. It encompasses nine departments and six interdisciplinary programs including Philosophy, English, Modern and Classical Languages, one of the oldest and largest Chicana/o Studies Department in the United States and the only Central American Studies Department in the country.
