Chair’s Welcome

Welcome to the UCLA Department of History. As department chair, I oversee the multifaceted work of the department. With nearly 50 faculty members, the department trains graduate students in a variety of fields spanning the globe; teaches thousands of undergraduates every year; and produces cutting edge scholarship on the history of many aspects of the world’s past. The department also houses The Luskin Center for History and Policy and the Public History Initiative. The many activities of the department are supported by a sizeable staff, who among other duties counsel our students, manage our budget, and keep the university’s required paperwork flowing.
