BA - History

  • The program of study in history offers a Bachelor of Arts degree. All majors complete several “major requirements” which provide needed background in research and writing, in the theory of the discipline, and in the various fields of history. Students must also complete a capstone experience including two research seminars. Students needing a writing sample or other credential for career advancement or graduate study can complete a Senior Thesis. A degree in history is useful to students interested in careers involving critical thinking, research and oral and written communication. It serves as a prerequisite for graduate study in a number of fields, including history and many other social science disciplines, education, law, and theology. A degree in history prepares students for careers in government, the international arena, law, theology, business, non-profit work, as well as for graduate study.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
