Additional Information


Majors will normally take HIS 241W - History as Detection: Workshop  in the spring semester of their sophomore year and HIS 441W - Making History  in the fall term of their senior year.

With the approval of the history department, credit may be granted for selected courses given by other colleges or universities. The department limits transfer credits for the major to 18. Introductory and advanced studies in a foreign language are strongly recommended as valuable tools of historical research; they also satisfy a general education requirement.
