Prospective History Majors, Minors, and Licensure Students

Students considering a History major or minor or planning on using History as a major in one of the education licensure programs should contact the Department to set up an appointment with an advisor. You may contact either of the Department’s administrative assistants: Joseph Grannes & Chrystyna Banks, by email or phone to set up an advising appointment. If you want to be advised by a specific faculty member you may contact that member via email to set up an appointment. See the Faculty/Staff list below for contact information.

The University Catalog details requirements for the History major and minor as well as for the Secondary and other Education Licensure programs. Students should review those requirements before coming to the History Department for advising.
