History Major Requirements

The major in History allows for a concentration in African American History , African History, History/Social Studies Teacher Education , and United States History . All interested students are advised to notify the department as early as possible, so that an advisor can be assigned.

The requirements consist of three sections: survey courses, upper level requirements, and departmental electives. Since each of these sections includes components which vary based on concentration, it is important that scheduling be done with the approval of an advisor. The major in history must receive a grade of "C" or higher in all courses required for the major. The following outlines provide the requirements of each concentration.
