History, Politics & Society

Majors

Core curriculum 
All students who major in the department complete core courses (28 units) designed to provide the basic skills of historical and critical analysis, an understanding of the scaffolding of world and American civilization, and an understanding of geographic diversities. 

Students do not take traditional United States history and world civilization surveys, which would largely parallel the University's General Education curriculum. Instead they take a set of broad thematic courses that provide a basic background in the major themes and issues of historical and cultural study as seen against a broad range of geographical settings.
