Students wanting to major in history may have a choice of earning a B.A. or a B.S. degree, depending on the school they attend. History majors normally pursue a B.A. degree, but students should consult their advisors on the differences between degrees. A history major may also pursue a program leading to state certification as high school (6-12) history teachers. To transfer as a junior, students must complete a minimum of 60 semester credits. Community and junior college students seeking a bachelor's degree in history are strongly encouraged to complete an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree before transferring.
