The Bachelor of Arts in History degree creates an important framework for understanding the present and influencing the future. Students begin with foundational courses in American and world history and take advanced courses in three major fields in historical studies: U.S. history, European history and world history. Research and writing are emphasized in the program, as well as hands-on experiences through internships and study abroad. All history majors study a foreign language through the intermediate level.
The degree program can include either the minor in Biblical Studies or a dual major in Biblical Studies. Dual majors with biblical studies combine close analysis of historical context with Christian texts.
- Develop an appreciation for history and the craft of the historian.
