Everything has a history

History Department at HSU - Video

If you think history is simply a record of names and dates, think again. Historians examine the complex ideas behind events of the past to help us understand the present and chart a more successful future. In a dynamic and ever-changing world, they are our modern-day guides.

At Humboldt State, we prepare our students with all the tools of the historian: critical thinking, high-tech research, project development, and excellent writing and presentation skills. Many of our students want to attend graduate school. Others know they want to teach or write.
