Tips for History Undergraduates

  • Most of our upper-division courses (with the exception of Pacific Northwest History and U.S. Military History) are offered once every two or three years. So, if there is a course that interests you, sign up rather than waiting. Our lower division courses are offered nearly every quarter.
  • Be aware that you need a C or above in HIST 302 and HIST 481 to have those courses count toward your major.
  • Most importantly, get to know your professors and classmates. We're all happy to answer any questions you might have!
