History

Degree Type: B.A.
CIP Code 54.0101
Major Code HTY
Department Code HTY
Degree Website www.usfsm.edu/academics/programs-and-majors/undergraduate/history/

The B.A. in History encourages students to move beyond traditional memorization of material to a sophisticated level of thinking, analysis, and synthesis. Because of their highly developed critical thinking, writing, and presentational skills, accomplished history majors are attractive to many kinds of employers in any number of fields, as well as to graduate and professional schools. Many USFSM graduates in History have gone on to careers in law, library and information science, government, foreign service, politics, and education.

Mission

The History curriculum is designed to prepare students for a future in professions that require solid research, writing, and analytical skills and value a perspective informed by history. By the time History majors graduate, they should be able to write well organized and grammatically correct papers that contain clear thesis statements and evidence to support their arguments. Moreover, in each course, students will be trained in the evaluation of primary and secondary source materials, weighing the impact of historical context on the construction of documents – a skill we label “thinking historically.” During their senior year, students will demonstrate their acquired skills in the Pro-Seminar capstone course.

Intended Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of historical context in analyzing the nature of past societies.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how the practice of history and interpretations of the past have changed over time.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of methodologies and theoretical constructs currently employed by historians.
  • Demonstrate the ability to analyze works by historians and identify their arguments and interpretations.
  • Present the results of historical research in a logically organized, written paper that is grammatically correct and presents a thesis, supported by relevant documentation.
