Recommended Course Sequence
The mission of the B.A. in History is to educate students in the areas of American, European, and world/non-Western history so that the students will be prepared to 1) pursue graduate or professional studies, 2) enter the teaching field, 3) enter a career in the public or private sector, or, 4) enter a career appropriate to a broad-based liberal arts education (not necessarily within history).
No grade below “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.
History majors who take advantage of the Study Abroad Program may credit a maximum of nine semester hours of history courses taken at a foreign institution towards meeting the requirements of a B.A. degree from Anderson University. History majors in the Study Abroad Program must take all of the required core courses (HIS 295 , HIS 494 , HIS 497 ) and at least one 300/400 level course from each of the three required areas of European, America, and Global/Nonwestern histories at Anderson University.
