Major Requirements

At least 33 credit hours in history, including HST 200  and six credit hours in each of the following areas: United States, Europe and non-western. At least one of the two courses in each area must be at the 200-level or higher. Majors need to take at least two courses (three credit hours each) at the 300-level and the history capstone, HST 470 . The capstone seminar requires primary-source research on a topic usually developed in one of the student’s 200 or 300-level courses. Majors must complete a satisfactory portfolio in history that includes sample course work and a self-evaluation (see department handout). Students may offer a maximum of two courses from other disciplines as part of their history major, provided that such courses contribute directly to the overall coherence of their major program. The chairperson of the department must approve such courses for the major.

History majors interested in graduate school should gain at least a reading proficiency in a foreign language.
