History Graduation Celebration 2020


UC Santa Cruz has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak as well as guidance set forth by the CDC, and the University's recommendations have been evolving quickly as the situation unfolds. If there are any updates to Commencement and related activities, the University will reach out broadly to students, staff, faculty, parents, and alumni with an update.

The 9th Annual History Department Graduation Celebration will be held:

Thursday, June 11th, 2020
1:30 - 3:00 pm
Cowell College Provost House

This celebration will be for all graduates of the 2019 - 2020 Bachelors of Arts (B.A.) programs in History, Classical Studies, Jewish Studies, and German Studies, and their friends and families (up to four guests per student).

This event is not a formal commencement ceremony. No cap and gown needed! It is an opportunity for faculty and students to socialize and celebrate together. There will be a brief program of remarks and all students will receive a graduation cord for their respective major. A light lunch will be served.
