HISTORY 4 YEAR PLAN

History - Non-Teaching: 4-YEAR PLAN All History majors require a minor of your choice, which is not included in the plan, but needs to be considered. A History major may earn a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. The difference is that a Bachelor of Arts degree requires you to take four semesters of the same foreign language. A Bachelor of Arts degree would be to your advantage, if you are considering a graduate degree in History. Language classes are available through DDN, the internet, and face-to-face.
