Bachelor of Arts in History
The undergraduate major in history is part of the Bachelor of Arts (B.A) degree offered by the University’s College of Arts and Sciences. Students take 30 credits, an equivalent of 10 courses, in history out of the 120 credits required for a B.A. degree. An additional 33 to 39 credits are taken in general education courses, leaving 51 to 57 credits of free electives.
Our program leaves students room to sample courses from other departments around the University, to complete a second major, to complete the Teacher Education program, to study abroad, to take advantage of internship programs, or to pursue whatever other interests they have outside their major.
