Declaring a Major and Minor

Declaring a Major in History

Incoming freshmen can declare history as a major during their orientation and will be processed accordingly. For currently enrolled students to declare history as a major, you need to consult with one of the history undergraduate advisors. Their offices are in the Melbern G. Glassock (History) Building, Room 105 and in the Liberal Arts Building, Room 202.  Students changing their major to history must have completed 3 hours of history at TAMU – College Station with a grade of C or higher.  (If you have over 90 hours, you will have to go to the College of Liberal Arts, Office of Undergraduate Advising, located in 202 Coke.)

Declaring a Minor in History

To qualify for a history minor, a student must take 15 hours of history. You must have 6 hours at the 100/200 level and 9 hours at the 300/400 level. To declare a History minor, speak with your major advisor and ask them to enter it into your degree evaluation.
