As of Fall 2023, courses of study in Bachelor of Arts Major in History and Secondary Licensure in History have been discontinued for future enrollments. However, students currently enrolled in these programs will be supported as they complete their degrees or as they transition to other academic programs.

Students majoring in history develop a critical consciousness of self, society, and the world while enriching their understanding of the past.

We study the history of various societies around the world as well as the political, social, economic, and religious history of the U.S. Students will also develop critical thinking skills by learning to think historically or to view ideas, individuals, and events in their proper context. We practice these skills with a wide variety of subjects.

History is not just a content area but is also a craft. Thus, history majors will also learn to generate historical knowledge by conducting original research.

Throughout this program of study, history majors will develop research, writing, and communication skills suitable for a variety of career possibilities.
