Mission Statement

The history faculty is committed to a program which stresses academic excellence.  The history curriculum seeks to prepare students for graduate or professional school and focuses on the development of historical literacy, critical thinking, and proficiency in primary historical skills.


Graduation Requirements

Depending upon the general education program pursued, students must earn either 120 or 128 credit hours to meet graduation requirements.  Some courses taken for the minor may simultaneously fulfill general education requirements.  Please see the Graduation Requirements (bachelor's degrees) section of this catalog for information on the general education programs.
