Summary of Fields of Study

  1. Goal(s)

  • The goals of the department of history are to ensure that each student majoring in history has been taught to assess historical events and historical writing in a critical fashion and to conduct research appropriate to the undergraduate level. In order to implement and evaluate these goals, the department requires students, with the assistance of faculty advisers, to compile a portfolio containing two samples of their work each year, including all papers produced in the senior seminar. History majors must meet with their advisers upon declaring their majors and then once each semester to ensure satisfactory progress in the major.
  • The Major(s)

    • The Department offers a single major, History.
  • The Minor(s)

    • The Department also offers a History minor.
