History majors should complete their history course core requirements before taking history courses numbered 3000 or above. They should meet each term with their major field advisors for consultation regarding their programs.
Students who earn the Bachelor of Arts degree in History will be able:
- Demonstrate content knowledge of history
- Analyze primary and secondary sources for their historical content and interpretations
- Demonstrate ability to research according to historical methods
- Demonstrate writing skills that reflect persuasive historical arguments based on evidence and proper citation
The History Department believes that these learning outcomes will contribute to a student's ability to think historically, which includes: understanding the people of the past; understanding the perspectives of historical actors and to view those historical actors from a critical, scholarly perspective; recognizing that people, events, ideas, and cultures have influenced later people events, ideas, and cultures; recognizing that history involves both change and continuity over time; and explaining connections between particular people, events, ideas, or texts and their historical contexts.
