The undergraduate major in History leads to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree. The major is broadly conceived to include all aspects of human development and heritage: political, social, economic and cultural. The undergraduate major in History has sufficient General Elective hours to enable completion of a minor.
Students who plan to teach history and/or government at the secondary school level should select the History major with teaching certification. For additional information, contact the HSH Office of Advising.
There are no specific prerequisites for admission to this major other than a strong academic record and a lively interest in how ideas, institutions, societies and individuals change and have changed over time.
