Program Review Reflections and Results
Program Accomplishments

In 2013-2014 the History Department built and opened a Digital History Lab to bolster our commitment to training students with technological skills while learning history.  We also hired a tenure-track Digital Historian, Dr. Kevin Kaatz, to lead these efforts beginning 2014

As part of the department's commitment to providing practical skills courses to majors and MA candidates for the job market, the department introduced a course on the Teaching of History to directly address those majors and MA candidates interesting in pursuing a career in teaching history whether at the high school or junior college level. 

The Public History Program continued to developed projects that both build practical skills and engage with the local community.  In partnership with California College of the Arts, 18 majors provided research for the background to a mural dedicated to the history of the City of Oakland, now up in downtown Oakland.  An MA candidate built a website to provide background information to onlookers, and an on-site tool where mural viewers can watch 2 minutes videos explaining the inspiration behind the six murals on display.
