Degrees and Programs

Students interested in history may choose a major or a minor in the discipline. The history major culminates in a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

The Bachelor of Arts degree requires 12 semester hours in the same foreign language or demonstration of proficiency at that level of study. The Bachelor of Arts degree is recommended for students preparing for graduate study in history or for professional school.

A minor in one of the humanities or social sciences is strongly recommended for all history majors.

Our core provides the foundation for all baccalaureate degrees at the University of Southern Indiana. A university education prepares individuals to live wisely in a diverse and global community by helping students acquire both discipline-specific competence and broader knowledge and skills that reach across disciplines. View the classes included in Core 39 or talk to your advisor for more information.
