Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Minors and Other Academic Programs

Minimum credits required: 37

One 200 or 300 level course in each of the following fields:


No more than 12 credits of 100-level history courses can count toward the major.

In addition, history majors must successfully pass the Department of History Comprehensive Examination, which is individually-tailored to reflect the student’s coursework at BW. They must also complete a Senior Learning Statement, which is a brief survey that we use to assess the value and continuing relevance of our courses. It is strongly recommended that a history major take more than the absolute minimum hours required, and that students who plan to attend graduate school seek out opportunities to do research (for example, through Faculty Student Collaborative Scholarship projects or the departmental thesis). Special programs may be designed for the student seeking a double University major, such as business-history, art-history, sociology-history, political science-history, psychology-history, etc. History majors may also elect History Concentrations .
