The UABC degree in History is a high quality educational program according to an opinion carried out by the Association for accreditation and certification in Social Sciences A.C (ACCECISO), an external body that assesses the quality of higher education in social sciences in Mexico.

Accredited by the Association for Accreditation and Certification in Social Sciences (ACCECISO) in 2005-2.

The Faculty began its activities in August 1986 with four degrees: English Language and Literature, Latin American Language and Literature, History, and Philosophy; occupying the facilities of the UABC High School in the Juarez neighborhood.


Due to its nature and orientation, the Faculty of Humanities constitutes the only alternative of higher education in Baja California that offers an academic space for the study of these disciplines. During its twenty-five years, it has maintained its educational offer by modifying it according to the needs of his environment. For that reason, in 1990-2, when the bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature ceased to be in demand again, in 1991-1 the degree in Communication was included. In 1992, during the management of Dr. Luis Llórenz Báez the school moved to its current place: the university campus of Otay.

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, within the framework of the University Reform and the extension of its educational offer, included Pedagogy Programs aimed primarily at the training of teaching professionals to attend basic (secondary) and middle education levels higher (high school). With these new commitments, and convinced to solve a clear and evident need for educational programs that the training of specialists in Teaching of Language and Literature, Mathematics Teaching and Psychopedagogical Counseling, society demands, this curricular proposal was made with the formulation of its curricula in 2004. In August 2009 the Faculty began to offer a career in Sociology.

Since its creation, the Faculty of Humanities has been a forum for the presentation of the most important academics, writers and intellectuals from Mexico and other countries.


In accordance with the UABC's conviction of being accountable to the society to which we owe, its four degrees were evaluated by external academic peers, achieving in January 2006 that Communication and History were accredited as high quality educational programs by the Association for the Accreditation and Certification in Social Sciences (ACCECISO). In July of the same year, Language and Literature of Latin America and Philosophy were recognized as level one educational programs by the Committee on Education, Arts and Humanities of the Inter-Institutional Committees for the Evaluation of Higher Education (CIEES). Finally, the careers of Language Teaching and Literature, Mathematics Teaching and Psychopedagogical Counseling obtained accreditation from the Committee for the Evaluation of Pedagogy and Education Programs (CEPPE) in recent years, so more than ninety percent of their student population studies in programs recognized for their good quality and in the process of continuous improvement.

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, thanks to the support of the university authorities, has resumed the successes and has given continuity to the best efforts of its managers and generations of graduates. Therefore, it has an adequate infrastructure and technologically updated equipment for the performance of its functions. Its graduates are placed in the main educational, cultural and media institutions of the region. In 2002, in co-production with the Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT), this academic unit produced two programs, one radio (Cultural Parallel, which was broadcasted on University Radio), and another television (Culture on board, broadcasted on cable channel 21 in Tijuana), of which, the second continues to be carried out weekly by students and professors of their now eight degrees.


Both programs, besides being the chronicle of the cultural life of Baja California during the last five years, constitute a sample of the creative and technical capacity of our university students.
