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.
  • Completion of HIST 512 with grade of B or higher. This course will count toward the major OR the graduate program, but not both.
  • An honors research paper (25 pp., minimum) on a historical topic. The 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 directed by a History faculty member will also complete this requirement.

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