College of Liberal Arts  >> History  

36 hours; C or better required in all major courses; 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 emphasis identifes courses of greatest benefit. In response to changes in teacher licensing and preparation, a multi-subject Social Science Teaching major 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 Licensure Minor.

Students seeking to teach history as a secondary school teacher (grades 5-12) are required to complete the History major, 9 additional hours (shown below) and the secondary education licensure minor. Students completing a teaching major must earn at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA, a 2.75 major GPA, a 2.75 GPA in the Secondary Education Licensure minor, and a grade of C or better in all courses applied toward degree requirements.

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 .
