GENERAL INFORMATION

The Bachelor of Arts with a History Major (30 required credit hours) will provide students with a solid understanding of American and World history. In addition to the required courses in United States and World history, students may choose elective courses in their particular area of interest. Through the study of history, students not only gain an understanding of past human activities, but they also develop skills in research, writing, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. This background will prepare the student for success in a variety of careers including government service, teaching, law, business, journalism, and museum and archival management. A minor in history (20 credit hours) provides students with a solid base in American and World history.
