General Information

The William P. Clements Department of History offers three types of courses: introductory, survey and more advanced courses that explore large areas of human history; intermediate thematic courses that mix lectures and small group discussions to explore more closely defined topics; and seminars that probe deeply into given areas. Each student should devise a program of study that meets individual interests and needs and also achieves a balance between diversification and specialization. Except where specified, there are no prerequisites, and interested students are invited into all courses.

Departmental Distinction

A history major with sufficiently high standing may graduate with honors in history by applying for the degree with departmental distinction. Eligible students (those who have completed 21 hours of history credit, including the junior seminar, with a 3.700 history GPA and overall 3.500 GPA) will be invited by the department chair to apply. During their senior year, candidates for distinction will pursue an individual research project under the direction of a particular professor (while enrolled in HIST 4375 ). This major research project will develop from the Senior Seminar (HIST 4390 ) or the Junior Seminar (HIST 4300 ). The research project will be presented as a thesis before the end of the term. The successful honors graduate must also pass an oral examination on the thesis before a committee of three history faculty members and receive at least an A- on the work.
