World History: Home

Here you will find library and internet resources for research on topics and issues in World History


World history is the focus of this libguide. Programs in the history field prepare students for transfer to four year programs in the California State University systems for majors, baccalaureates, or preparation for Master’s degrees. History degrees can lead to future employment such as writers, authors, editors, postsecondary teachers, high school teachers, archivists, curators, museum workers, social science or humanities researchers, and cultural resource managers or policy analysts. The library supports student success in these programs by providing selected resources.
