Guidelines for Students Interested in Majoring in History
Earn credit for English 1110.
Take the History GE (General Education) course. If you are interested in being a social studies teacher, you should take the History 1681-1682 World Civilization sequence.
If you have completed a GEC history sequence and are planning on majoring in history, History 2800 is the next course you should take.
If you are not able to register for History 2800, you may enroll in any 2000-level history course, and then try to register for History 2800 the following semester.
For other questions regarding GE courses, you should go to USAS (Undergraduate Student Advising Services) to schedule an appointment with an adviser: USAS is located on the first floor of Denney Hall, 164 W. 17th Avenue (292-6961).
Transfer students who need to have history transfer credit evaluated should make an appointment to meet with Maria Mazon. Students need to bring to the appointment the Transfer Credit Evaluation, transcript, course descriptions and syllabi.
If you are sure you want to be a history major, make an appointment with Ms. Mazon and you will be assigned a faculty adviser.
If you are a declared Honors student, the Honor's Advisers are Prof. David Stebenne, 292-5359 and Dr. Richard Ugland, 247-6037; you may contact one of them for an appointment.
Please note: Ms. Mazon works part-time; her office hours are Monday - Thursday between 7:30 - 1:30 and 7:30-12:30 on Friday. You may e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 292-6793 for an appointment.
