Bachelor of Arts in History


The History Major challenges the intellect, inspires the imagination, and stimulates analytical thinking. 

The B.A. in History requires a minimum of 33 credit hours, excluding history courses taken to meet general curriculum requirements.  Lower Division, core courses address Ancient and Medieval, Modern European and World History.  One class is chosen from each area.  Upper electives are chosen from Ancient and Medieval World, Asia, Latin America, Modern Europe and Russia, and the United States  At least three different areas must be represented in courses.  A 4000 level seminar and the History Colloquium (Hist 3903) are also required.

Combined B.A./M.A. Program
The combined B.A./M.A. program enables highly motivated students to earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in five years. The combined program requires the same number of credits and level of work as the current B.A. and M.A. (thesis option) degree programs. As a result only students who enter TU with an IB diploma or at least 24 hours of AP credit can reasonably be expected to complete both degrees in five years. All students admitted to the combined B.A./M.A. program will write a master’s thesis as part of their program of study. With instructor’s permission, undergraduate students enrolled in the B.A./M.A. program may take 5000 level courses.

The typical student will apply for admission to the combined program in his or her junior year.  Students interested in the combined B.A./M.A. should contact the Graduate Advisor or any faculty member of the History
Department to find out more about the program.
