The Bachelor’s in History offers valuable preparation for careers in law, journalism, teaching, government, the ministry, library and museum work, and in those areas of the business world where a knowledge of foreign affairs and culture is desirable. History also serves as an indispensable adjunct to careers in the humanities and social sciences. More broadly, by exposure to a variety of cultures and human experiences, the discipline of History seeks to prepare students for the responsibilities of citizenship and for dealing with the ambiguities of human existence. The Department of History at Marshall also makes every effort to help students think critically, to view events with perspective and objectivity, and to appreciate the complexity of human experience and the difficulty of interpreting it.
The Bachelor’s in History degree requires a minimum of 36 credit hours of History, including HST 101, 102, 103, 200, 230, 231, 400. Students must also take at least one course from each group of courses listed below. At least twelve credit hours in History must be in courses above the 200 level.
