Summary

Why do human beings do what they do? Historians answer this basic question by looking at human behavior in widely divergent places and times. By leaving our own time and place behind, historians encounter beliefs, behaviors and practices that are strikingly different from our own.

Studying history creates comprehension of complexity and diversity. This is an essential skill for negotiating today’s multicultural, globalized world. A history major provides students with other skills too: the ability to write clearly and persuasively, and to understand complicated events in a nuanced, sophisticated way. History majors learn to read newspapers, political speeches and documents in a critical fashion, a particularly vital skill in today’s information-rich world.

Curriculum

A major program in history consists of a minimum of 33 semester hours of course work at the 2000-level and above. After consultation with and approval by the student’s advisor, a student may apply up to six hours of course work from outside the Department of History to the major. All students must complete History 2800, Introduction to the Discipline of History, a 4000-level readings seminar, and a 4000-level research seminar. These courses fulfill nine of the 33 hours of the major. Honors sections of the seminars are available and required for students in the Honors Program.

Students majoring in history will acquire historical knowledge of at least two cultures as well as knowledge spanning chronological periods before and after 1750. Students select at least 12 credit hours in one of six geographic areas and/or eight thematic areas to provide depth.

Geographical concentrations

Possible areas of geographic concentration include North America; Latin America; Europe (including Russia); Near East, Middle East, Central Asia, and/or South Asia; East Asia; and Africa.

Thematic concentrations

  • history of environment, science and technology
  • women’s history
  • military history
  • international (diplomatic) history
  • history of colonialism and comparative empires
  • religious history
  • history of race, ethnicity and nation
  • history of the state (power, culture, society)
  • global early modern history

Students may also arrange their own thematic concentrations with permission of an advisor.

Students also take at least 12 credit hours in other areas for breadth. At least six hours of the major need to be from courses covering historical periods before 1750 and at least six hours from courses in periods after 1750.

Possible careers

The skills you learn in history—critical thinking, careful reading, well-crafted writing—are essential tools for a wide range of careers: law, teaching, social work, economics, advertising, banking, and government work. History trains you broadly. It opens up possibilities rather than narrowing your focus to a single career.
