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.

Student Involvement & Activities

The East Bay Historia

CSUEB's student journal of historical research

East Bay Historia is an annual publication of the California State University, East Bay (CSUEB) Department of History. It aims to provide CSUEB students with an opportunity to publish historical works and to give students the experience of being on an editorial board and creating and designing an academic journal. Issues are published at the end of each academic year. All opinions or statements of fact are the sole responsibility of their authors and may not reflect the views of the editorial staff, the History Department, or California State University, East Bay (CSUEB). The authors retain rights to their individual essays.

East Bay Historia’s mission is to promote the study of history at CSUEB, give history majors and non-history majors alike opportunities to express their passion for the subject, and to empower students, faculty, and staff who are studying or are interested in history.
