We want your college experience to involve more than just attending classes! Take advantage of our research opportunities to build your resume before graduation, get involved in a department committee to help us shape the major for future students, explore our honor society, and talk to us about internships.
For undergraduates, we offer a major and a minor – both online or in-person or a mix of both types of classes! Our program offers maximum flexibility in choice of class format and in choice of courses. Students are required to take courses that cover historical content from different time periods and places but have many options within the categories.
The department also offers several scholarships and awards to undergraduates and our majors are eligible for additional scholarships offered by the Dean’s Office for the College of Letters & Science.
