2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog

History, Political Studies Concentration


The core and distribution requirements for a major in history with a concentration in politics are those listed for baccalaureate degrees  with the exception that a course in literature or philosophy is required to fulfill the humanities distribution requirement,  and a course in economics, finance, psychology or sociology is required to fulfill the social science distribution requirement.

Advanced placement for U.S. History Survey I/II or European History Survey allows students to immediately enroll in 200- and 300-level history electives. Students will still need to take 27 credit hours in history and 18 credit hours in politics, but they are exempted from taking HIS 111 , HIS 112  and/or HIS 214  if they have taken an advanced placement course in the corresponding area. The advanced placement hours awarded will apply toward the graduation requirement of 126 hours.

Advanced placement for U.S. Government and Politics exempts students from POL 202 , though advanced placement in Comparative Government and Politics does not exempt students from POL 200 . In either case, students still need to take 27 credit hours in history and 18 credit hours in politics. The advanced placement hours awarded will apply toward the graduation requirement of 126 hours
