Introduction

Please click here  to see History department information.

The bachelor’s degree in history provides students with a firm grounding for advanced studies in education, librarianship, law, business and public service, as well as graduate work in the humanities and social sciences broadly. History is an all-inclusive discipline, making it an excellent choice for students with a wide variety of career goals.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
