The history faculty have designed a curriculum that helps students build skills and acquire knowledge as they move from learning fundamental skills to taking more advanced courses. History majors begin by taking HST 1100: Western Civilizations to 1500 and HST 1200: The West and the World since 1500. In their sophomore year, they take the 2-semester U.S. survey before moving on to HST 3000: Introduction to Historical Analysis and surveys of individual regions and topics. In their senior year, they move on to specialized courses and take the capstone course, HST 4900: Research Seminar.
