Primary Function of Organization Unit: The History Department is a diverse group of scholars covering many areas of specialization. We pride ourselves on outstanding teaching. We offer small classes that allow a great deal of individual attention. In addition, our faculty advisors offer close contact and personal attention to each student. The History major is a place to get a "small college" education in a big state university. The department of twenty-nine professors has about three hundred fifty majors in three undergraduate programs;the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Arts with a Teacher Education Concentration, and the Bachelor of Sciences. All programs offer a great deal of student choice in courses and electives, allowing the pursuit of either a broad educational experience or a focused study. Our 80 student graduate program offers two distinct degrees: the M.A. in History and the M.A. in Public History. However, both degree programs require a strong foundation in traditional history.
