The college requires that all students take one three-hour course in the Historical General Studies Category. Most lower-division History courses, and a few upper-division, count as Historical General Studies courses. See the current college catalog for the list of General Studies courses.
Majors, Minors, and Licensure Students:
The college catalog details requirements for the History major and minor as well as for the secondary and other education licensure programs. Students should review those requirements before coming to the History Department for advising.
Students considering a History major or minor or planning on using History as a major in one of the education licensure programs should come to the Department to set up an appointment with an advisor. You may contact either of the Department's administrative assistants--Donna Potempa or Sharon Roehling--by e-mail or phone to set up an advising appointment. If you want to be advised by a specific faculty member you may contact that member by e-mail to set up an appointment. See the Faculty/Staff link for contact information.
