Courses in Disciplines related to History

Historical studies

     To complete a Major in Historical Studies, students must complete a number of courses from the following list. The number of courses required from this list for the Historical Studies major depends on the route that the student chooses for the senior research project.  Those students who opt for HIST 4950 Independent Project are required to take five courses from this list; students who choose HIST 4951/4952 are required to take only four of these courses.  These courses have been chosen because they have some historical content in them and thus can offer Historical Studies majors some degree of breadth and interdisciplinarity.  These courses are thematically or methodologically relevant to the study of History.  These courses are generally at the first, second, third, and fourth-year level.  
       Students may be allowed to take other courses with permission of the Program Chair.  Please contact the chair of Historical Studies for a list of additional courses that can be used to fulfill this program requirement.

     Applicable courses used to satisfy the Minor requirements may also be counted as Historical Studies credits. No more than 6 credit hours from any one discipline will be counted toward Historical Studies Major.  This is an updated list.  Courses that were on the former list but no longer on this new list will still serve as valid courses for this program requirement.
