The College of Health and Human
Development Collection consists of the records of the college and its previous
iterations throughout CSUN's history. Records include annual reports, program
brochures, event fliers, course information, commencement programs, directories, and
information on departments and centers.
The College of Health and Human Development first began as the School of Communication
and Professional Studies (CAPS), which was established in 1973, shortly after San
Fernando Valley State College became California State University, Northridge. CAPS
department included Communicative Disorders, Health Science, Home Economics, Journalism,
Physical Education, Radio-Television-Film, Recreation and Leisure Studies, Speech
Communication, and Child Development. The school was renamed the School of
Communication, Health and Human Services in the early 1990s. In 1996, the school was
reorganized and renamed the College of Health and Human Development, consisting of six
departments: Child Development, Communicative Disorders, Family Environmental Sciences,
Health Science, Kinesiology, and Leisure Studies and Recreation. The departments of
Journalism, Speech Communication and Radio-TV-Film were moved to the new College of
Arts, Media, and Communication.
