History Programs

The Department offers both the B.A. and M.A. degrees in History, with directed career advising into fields that focus on your passion for history. Our faculty are award-winning professional scholars, widely published in their fields and active in their professional associations. Students have the opportunity to choose from a wide array of history courses, and examine the roots of our contemporary world issues  through understanding how we got here in the first place. The undergraduate major includes foundational courses in historical interpretation and research, thematic areas of concentration, electives, history labs, applied history courses and capstone courses in historiography and research methods. The graduate program consists of a series of graduate seminars and the graduate project. M.A. candidates have the opportunity to work on projects directly related to their career goals. History course sections are scheduled Mondays through Fridays, with frequent night classes. Courses are offered year-round.

Please feel free to contact any member of the department for answers to your questions and assistance with your plans. We look forward to hearing from you.
