History draws upon both the humanities and the social sciences, and majors in history
are expected to supplement their history courses with courses in literature and the other
humanities as well as with the social sciences.
Although Historical Research Methods and the Senior Seminar are the only specific
courses required for a history major, a thorough basic knowledge in both American and
European history is expected. Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in HIS110-HIS111 and HIS150-HIS151, unless they have taken similar courses at the college level. Students should take as many history courses as possible.
