Lower Division Requirements:
15 semester hours distributed as follows: HIST 100, 101, 161, 162, and one course selected from HIST 152, 172, 182, and 192. A student must accumulate a C (2.0) average in the prerequisite courses. In addition, the Department recommends the study of geography and foreign languages.
Upper Division Requirements:
24 semester hours in upper division courses.
All major programs must include a course in historical method (HIST 310 or 330) and at least one 500-level seminar. The remaining courses are to be chosen with the approval of the student's advisor, and not more than half of the total 24 semester hours may be taken from one of the following areas: 1) Europe, 2) United States, or 3) Africa, Asia, Latin America and modern Middle East. An average grade of C (2.0) must be obtained in the courses included in the major.
21 semester hours. One course must be selected from HIST 100 or 101; one course from 161 or 162. At least 9 semester hours must be from upper division course offerings.
The history minor is a flexible program. Aside from the two lower division course requirements, students can select any history course as long as at least three of the remaining five courses are upper division history courses. However, students might want to consider selecting courses that relate to their major and belong to geographical or thematic units.
