The History program offers courses for either a general knowledge of the history of civilization or for a special knowledge of particular topics and limited time periods.

As the story and interpretation of human experience and achievements, the study of history gives perspective to related subjects in the humanities and social sciences.
Students may major in History to gain historical knowledge, to acquire the historical method, to pursue research interests, or to prepare for a career in teaching, the professions or government service.
No additional language requirement exists for students majoring or minoring in history. Majors, however, are encouraged to complete at least two years of a relevant language.
