For History majors, please consult with your advisor about into which category courses fall and whether they count towards the early requirement. Some courses may fall into multiple categories, but may only count for one category. A course can count for both a category and as an early course. You may count up to three history courses taken in colleges and universities abroad or elsewhere in the United States towards a history major. We are currently in the process of revising the major and these categories will change in Fall 2022. We will update this page once our proposed changes have been approved. The current categories are –

Category 1: Africa, Asia, and World History

Category 2: Europe, Russia, and the USSR

Category 3: Colonial and Native America/United States
