Why History?

A formalized program of historical study—required of our majors—dramatically refines skills which you already possess, allowing their use in much more eloquent, challenging, and productive ways. You will learn to think broadly and historically, thereby gaining meaningful insights into human development over time.

Certifying into a Program of Study

A student may certify a major in history upon completing 24 credits with a GPA of 2.0 or higher.

Those interested in a teaching option should consult with the College of Education concerning certification requirements for teaching.
