Department Information
The history faculty offers courses leading to bachelor of arts and master of arts.

Students who declare a major in history must register with the department.

History Honors Program
The Department awards Honors status to qualified history majors. To qualify for the program, students must meet the following requirements:

  • A history major (small plan, large plan or History Social Studies Teaching)
  • A GPA of 3.5 in history courses and 3.25 overall
  • A year of 200- or 300-level coursework in a foreign language OR a credited study abroad trip
  • An honors research paper (30-page minimum) on a historical topic. This paper may be started in HIST 481 or another upper division history class and may require additional independent study credits to complete. A committee of three faculty members will judge whether the paper meets departmental standards for honors. A Douglas Honors College thesis with a faculty mentor in the history department will also count for this requirement.

Students who complete the above requirements will graduate with departmental honors. Please contact the department chair for more information.
