Requirements for the Interdepartmental Major:

Eight courses, including three courses in the core, one course each in two of the approved areas outside of the core, one pre-1700 course, one Inter-Continental Connections course, one 300-level course, and the 400-level seminar (to be completed by the end of their junior year before beginning their senior project). The senior project may not count toward the field requirement.

Requirements for Honors in History:

To be eligible for departmental honors, a student must fulfill the following requirements: (1) a minimum index of 3.30 in history; (2) a grade of “A minus” or higher on the senior project; and (3) a grade of “distinction” or “high pass” in an oral examination based on the senior project. In addition, the student must satisfy College requirements for departmental honors.

Course Selection Guidelines:

Placement: We accept the following AP courses: World History, United States History, and European History. If the score is 4 or 5, then we assign credit for one of our introductory courses, HST 106  for World History, HST 102  for United States History, and HST 147  for European History, all of which will count towards the major.

Courses Suitable for Non-Majors: Although 300 and 400 level courses are designed with History majors and minors in mind, all History courses are suitable for non-majors.

Course Numbering: 300- and 400-level courses have as a prerequisite any 100- or 200-level course or permission of the instructor.
