CCSU - Where History is Central!

The History Department at CCSU is a place of vibrant learning in which professors engage students and guide them through an exploration of the past.  Our faculty are accomplished teachers and scholars who bring their professional experience to every class.  We work to mentor students so that they can successfully achieve their career aspirations.

Our students go on to pursue careers in teaching, academia, government, law, public history (museums and historic preservation), and in the private sector. Our graduates work for such varied employers as the US Department of Agriculture, Crosskey Architects, ESPN, and Traveler's Insurance, and many more. 

We believe that a quality history education focused on the core strengths of critical inquiry, excellent research skills, and an ability to excel in reading and writing will ably prepare students for any endeavor on which they focus.
