REQUIRED FOR HISTORY MAJORS: 13 COURSES
In addition to the two core courses (HIS 151 or 155 and 251) and the core concentration course (HIS 300), history majors are required to take one additional U.S. history course, two European history courses, two non-Western history courses, three courses in an area of concentration (U.S., European, or non-Western), and two senior seminars in an area of concentration. Majors who intend post-graduate study should take at least two semesters of a foreign language.
Dual Majors: Depending on the other courses taken by the student whose second major is history, the number of courses required ranges from 10 to 12. All single and dual majors whose first major is history must take the seminar (two semesters). Dual education majors should take the seminar in their junior year instead of the senior year so as not to conflict with senior student teaching.
REQUIRED FOR HISTORY MINORS: 6 COURSES
Minors must take the three core courses listed above plus any three history courses at the 300 level or above. Students who wish to minor in history, but who have not taken HIS 300 as a core concentration, may substitute any history course at the 300 level or above.
Advanced Placement credit in history is granted to students who score 4 or above.
