The College of Humanities is among the largest colleges at Cal State Northridge, housing seven academic departments and eight interdisciplinary programs. In our College, you will find programs that traditionally make up the study of Humanities, including Philosophy, English, and Modern and Classical Languages. You will also find one of the oldest and largest Chicana/o Studies Departments in the U.S, an internationally recognized Women's Studies faculty, the only Central American Studies Program in the country, and a newly launched Queer Studies minor.
In the College of Humanities we prepare students who will graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in a rapidly changing, highly diverse, and internationally competitive world. Our students find career opportunities in a wide range of fields, including the legal and medical professions, nonprofit organizations, as interpreters and translators, journalists, advertising executives, freelance writers, human resource managers, in banking and, of course, as teachers.
Whether you major in Religious Studies, Asian American Studies, prepare for a career in Elementary Education, or study in one of our other fields, what holds all our programs together is our commitment to exploring and valuing the diversities of cultures, thought, perspectives, literatures and languages of humanity.
