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.
Be sure to consult the institution you plan on transferring to for course articulations.

The major panel courses recommended will be accepted as credit toward the major at the receiving institutions listed.
Credit will either be accepted as a course equivalent or be counted as elective credit toward fulfilling the requirements of the major.
- Once a transfer institution is chosen, students should consult the appropriate transfer guide as soon as possible for guidance on the most successful transfer path .Click here to view other Articulation Agreements..
- Note that if the receiving institution does not offer the course or does not offer it at the lower-division level, the student will receive elective lower-division major credit for the course but may be required to take the course at the upper division level.
- Receiving institutions may still require additional lower division courses to satisfy the major requirements, but students transferring should be able to complete the remaining courses in the same time that a native student can be reasonably expected to do so.
- Approval of this list of recommended courses does not guarantee that the student will be admitted to the receiving institution or to that major.
