History

 

A degree in History from Ohio University Southern prepares students for a variety of careers. Many students pursue successful careers in education, museums, and libraries. Others enjoy careers as lawyers, government officials, businessmen and women, journalists, and policy consultants in the non-profit sector. A history degree allows students to explore different cultures and develop analytical abilities necessary for succeeding in our increasingly globalized society.
 
Program Requirements:
  • Majors must take two introductory (freshman) courses, selected from our World History (HIST 1320/1330) or Western Heritage (HIST 1210, 1220) sequences. Students will also take two survey (sophomore) courses in U.S. History (HIST 2000, 2010).
  • At the advanced level, students take a research and writing course (HIST 3111J) and 21 additional semester hours in upper division courses (above HIST 2010) in three geographical areas (U.S., Europe and World) and three chronological areas (pre-modern, early modern, and modern). Majors should consult their departmental advisor for assistance in selecting classes.
  • Graduation with a B.A. in History requires the successful completion of College of Arts and Science requirements and 33 semester hours in history (+the HIST 3111J course which also meets the university J requirement) and a 2.0 minimum G.P.A.

To complete this program, students must meet all University-wide graduation requirements.
