History Emphasis

Students who plan to major in history at a four-year institution would be well-advised to take both the American and world history survey courses in order to be well-prepared for upper division work. These emphases give students who wish to major in history at a four-year institution a strong base from which to build their degree program.

Students must select only one emphasis area.
