36 hours; 2.5 major GPA required

Elective Courses (21 hours)

History majors must select nine hours from one of the elective areas of history, and six hours from each of the other two areas:

Area I - United States History

Area II - European History

Area III - African, Asian, Latin American, Middle Eastern, and Russian/Soviet History

At least two of the elective courses must be taken at the 400-level. HIST 498  and/or HIST 499  will be counted in the appropriate elective area if taken as different topics.

History Teaching (optional)

For students seeking licensure to teach history (5-12), the optional History Teaching track emphasizes identified courses of greatest benefit.  In response to changes in teacher licensing and preparation, a multi-subject Social Science Secondary Education degree is no longer offered.  Under the new system students are required to complete a degree in a particular social science area, such as history, and the Secondary Education Minor.

Students seeking to teach history as a secondary school teacher (grades 5-12) are required to complete the History Teaching major, 6 additional hours  (shown below) and the secondary education licensure minor.

Secondary Education Licensure minor

Students seeking a teaching major that leads to licensure as a secondary school teacher (grades 5-12) are required to complete the Secondary Education Licensure Minor .
