Program Description

The program of study in history offers a Bachelor of Arts degree. All majors complete several “major requirements” which provide needed background in research and writing, in the theory of the discipline, and in the various fields of history. Students must also complete a capstone experience including two research seminars. Students needing a writing sample or other credential for career advancement or graduate study can complete a Senior Thesis. A degree in history is useful to students interested in careers involving critical thinking, research and oral and written communication. It serves as a prerequisite for graduate study in a number of fields, including history and many other social science disciplines, education, law, and theology. A degree in history prepares students for careers in government, the international arena, law, theology, business, non-profit work, as well as for graduate study.

This program is a part of the Norman J. Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences .
