Health and Human Development Collection
consists of the records of the college and
its previous iterations throughout CSUN's history. Records include annual reports, program
brochures, event fliers, course information, commencement programs, directories, and

The College of Health and Human Development first began as the School of Communication and
Professional Studies (CAPS), which was established in 1973, shortly after San Fernando
Valley State College became California State University, Northridge. CAPS department
included Communicative Disorders, Health Science, Home Economics, Journalism, Physical
Education, Radio-Television-Film, Recreation and Leisure Studies, Speech Communication, and
Child Development. The school was renamed the School of Communication, Health and Human
Services in the early 1990s. In 1996, the school was reorganized and renamed the College of
Health and Human Development, consisting of six departments: Child Development,
Communicative Disorders, Family Environmental Sciences, Health Science, Kinesiology, and
Leisure Studies and Recreation. The departments of Journalism, Speech Communication and
Radio-TV-Film were moved to the new College of Arts, Media, and Communication.
