U.S. History

All-University Course Notes:

All-University requirements cannot be waived and other Cal Poly Humboldt courses cannot be substituted for approved American Institutions and Diversity and Common Ground courses. To fulfill these requirements, a course must be completed during the academic year in which its All-University status is designated in the catalog.


Students taking US History courses study:

  • significant events covering a minimum time span of approximately one hundred years and occurring in the entire area now included in the United States of America, including the relationships of regions within that area and with external regions and powers as appropriate to the understanding of those events within the United States during the period under study; and
  • the role of major ethnic and social groups in such events and the contexts in which the events have occurred; and
  • do so within a framework that illustrates the continuity of the American experience and its derivation from other cultures, including consideration of three or more of the following: politics, economics, social movements, and geography.
