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
Qualified students are urged to enter the Department of History’s Honors Program. To qualify for the program, students must complete 25 credits in their major and have an overall GPA of 3.0 and 3.25 in history. Honors students will complete the following requirements:

  • An elective course in addition to those required for their major in an area of concentration (United States, Europe, or non-western)
  • A year of coursework in one departmentally approved foreign language at an accredited college or university. If it is the same language as that taken in high school, the student must complete the coursework at the 200 level
  • An honors research paper (25 page minimum) completed during HIST 481. A faculty committee will judge whether the paper meets departmental standards for honors.

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

Bachelor of Arts
(NOTE: Students seeking a BA degree must complete one year college/university study or two years high school study of a single foreign language.)
