Program Description


The undergraduate major in history enables a student to gain a broad liberal arts education. In meeting the specific requirements of the major, students are encouraged to further their knowledge of the principal developments and problems of history and enrich their understanding of historical evolution through research and writing. Through complementary elective courses in other departments, which add depth and variety, students enlarge their historical perspective. Through exposure to a broad spectrum of human experience in the past and present, students should come to an understanding of themselves, their relationship to other human beings and to the structure of society.

The student who declares history as a major is assigned an academic advisor who will assist with academic routines, the selection of individual courses, and the development of undergraduate and postgraduate goals. Students interested in careers in law, public service, journalism, or business should consult with the advisor about departmental programs particularly geared to these fields.
