The Department’s faculty members teach courses covering various time periods, regions of the world, and themes in history. First- and second-year courses (numbered 1000-1999) are aimed at students with little or no background in historical studies. Introductory surveys (numbered 2000-2999) are open to non-majors as well as majors, and provide overviews of core issues in African, American, Asian, Latin American, Western, and World history. Upper-division courses, numbered 3000-3999, are generally designed for third- and fourth-year students, and cover more specialized topics with greater depth than surveys. These courses do not necessarily require deep background in historical knowledge. Upper-division courses numbered 4000-5999 are taken by third- and fourth-year students along with graduate students, and are taught at an advanced level. Various Honors courses and special-topics courses are also offered.
The course schedules below show what has been offered in past semesters, the current semester, and what is tentatively expected to be offered in future semesters. Future semester schedules are subject to change in order to fit the needs of the department, and may be revised without advance notice. No contract, either expressly or implied, is created by future schedules. Nevertheless, the department will offer the core history classes (HIST 2110, HIST 2112), Historical Methods (HIST 2630), the Senior Seminar (HIST 4635), and World History I (HIST 1111) every Fall and Spring semester. Course Descriptions can be found in the catalog.
