Current and Upcoming History Courses

Students from any major are welcome to take any history department courses that interest them. There are no prerequisites for most courses. Each semester we offer 25+ survey courses in U.S. History, World History, and Western Experience. In addition, history faculty offer 35 different “electives” in the areas of U.S., European, Latin American, African, Middle Eastern and World History. Students should be aware that 300-level courses are more demanding than 200-level and will require more in-depth reading, writing, and research assignments. These are the electives scheduled for the upcoming academic year.

History majors select any 6 history electives of their choice (two must be at the 300 level), in addition to their other history requirements. Note that elective courses are usually offered only every 2nd or 3rd year, so if you see a course that you’re interested in you should plan to register for it. Most students take electives only in their Junior and Senior years.
