Our role in approval

The Department of History is one of the departments responsible for approving outside courses for the American Institutions Requirement.  We are not responsible for the existence of the requirement, nor are we able to exempt you from the requirement.

But we can assess the courses you have taken to determine your status in terms of fulfilling this requirement.

You are required to six units of AIR courses, and those courses must cover the following three fields:

  1. US-1: American Ideals and Institutions over Time
  2. US-2: The US Constitution
  3. US-3: California Government

For an evaluation, submit the form found here.

Follow up questions can be directed to the Chair of the History Department.
