Program Requirements

B.A. major in history consists of 30 hours in history courses including the following:

  1. HIST 102  and 103  are required courses for all history majors.
  2. At least 6 hours in European history;
  3. At least 6 hours in American history;
  4. At least 6 hours in one or two of the following: Asian, African, Islamic, Russian or Latin-American history, including at least 3 hours in Asian, African or Islamic history;
  5. Seminar, ordinarily taken during the junior year. A grade of C- or better is required in each course and at least 18 of the 30 hours must be on the advanced level (three-digit courses).

Since history touches on every facet of human experience, majors should also take courses in other areas. Required: 3 hours of philosophy or religious studies and 12 additional hours chosen from at least three social sciences (see Academic Organization ). Students are urged to take six hours of advanced courses in the literature of their field of interest. History majors can easily take minors in one of these areas or in another area such as computer science or business.
