TAMU offer two flexible avenues towards either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in History. Each allows you to focus on your personal interests while experiencing the tremendous variety of topics we study. The range of options is sure to engage, inspire, and challenge you.
A major in history affords students both a broad education and valuable practical skills. Teaching is one career path for history majors, but not the only. A major in history also prepares students for careers in government, law, journalism, national defense, foreign service, technology, business, philanthropy, archival and library resources, public relations, and community service. History, in other words, is a launch point for an array of jobs in any number of fields. Check out what some of our recent graduates have to say about their experiences.
Both the BA and the BS in History require 33 credit hours. For major and degree requirements, start by consulting the University catalog. Then contact History advisors, Robyn Konrad, at email@example.com or Adrianna Rodriguez: firstname.lastname@example.org .
History is an excellent pairing with many other majors and degree programs in science, technology, and the liberal arts!
A student may apply for a double major or double degree as long as s/he:
- has a GPR of 3.0 or higher overall and in the second field
- has completed 9 hours in the second field
- has completed fewer than 90 hours total
Students pursuing a Double Major or Double Degree must meet with their advisors in both departments.
