Four introductory history courses to satisfy requirements for geographical breadth, with a course in each of four groups: world history, history of Asia or Africa or Latin America, European history, and American history. This also satisfies the College requirements for general education in history.
The Sophomore Seminar (HI 300) – A course to introduce the methods and skills of historical research and writing. Advised to be taken before any advanced electives.
The Senior Seminar (HI 491) – A small seminar as a capstone research and writing experience for seniors. We offer a variety of focused topics each semester.
The six remaining courses in the major must be beyond introductory (200) level, with at least three courses (for students entering as of 2018) being Advanced Electives (400-level classes). Students may choose any topics, and perhaps build a focus of study with their selections.
The degree plan includes 32 credit hours of Free Electives, letting students select courses to build general knowledge, a specialty, or a Minor.
History majors satisfy the College’s general education requirements and the University General Education Program. Discuss your requirements and selections with your adviser.
