At the crossroads of the humanities, the arts, and the social sciences, History is the study of human experience as it has unfolded over the ages.

As an academic discipline it presents a unique gateway both to the richness of our cultural heritage and to the immense variety of world civilizations.

All History courses at Cabrillo College emphasize analytical writing as the primary means of evaluating student performance. We believe that this rigorous training helps students to improve their ability to weigh conflicting evidence, evaluate alternative courses of action or divergent points of view, and express conclusions logically and clearly.

The history major is an excellent preparation for a number of rewarding careers:

  • university and college teaching and research law
  • education
  • government
  • diplomacy
  • business
  • journalism
  • international business
  • librarianship
  • and even medicine...
