History - European History Concentration, B.A.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study


The History major consists of twelve courses in one of the following concentrations: United States History; European History; or World History. As part of this primary concentration all History majors must complete HIS 320 - Historical Methods and Materials , which focuses on the development of research skills, historical analysis, and historiography. Students are required to take this course during their junior year since it is a pre-requisite for the Senior History Thesis.

All History majors write an in-depth Senior History Thesis, HIS 410 , in the Fall or Spring Semester of their senior year. This thesis builds upon background knowledge and skills acquired in previous classes, especially Historical Methods and Materials, where students design an in-depth research proposal for their intended thesis.

The required courses for each of the three concentrations follow:

European History


* Students with no previous college-level credit in European History are recommended, but not required to take HIS 265 - Western Civilization I (European)  and HIS 266 - Western Civilization II (European) .
