Undergraduate Program Information

The major in History consists of twelve courses, at least eleven of which must be completed within the Department of History. Students may include one course from another department in constructing their “Fields of Concentration.”

Individual programs must satisfy both lower- and upper-division requirements. They must also include at least one course devoted entirely to premodern history (to be selected from courses focused on one or more of the following eras: Antiquity, the Classical Period, and the Medieval Period; courses dealing solely with the Early Modern Period do not satisfy this requirement). For courses satisfying the premodern history requirement, please review the current list.

Students may declare the major after completing three courses in the Department of History, including at least two courses in the lower division.
