Digital History

All CSUSM History Department Students have the opportunity to research and/or create digital history projects through the completion of the History BA and MA programs. Studying digital history equips students to think critically and engage new ways of thinking. Digital history brings academic scholarship to public audiences through creativity and accessibility.
