The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) is a broadly based liberal arts degree in history. Students who pursue the B.A. degree must satisfy general requirements and take courses from across the social sciences and humanities core curriculum, in addition to required and elective history courses.
These requirements help students develop their historical knowledge and skills within the contexts of the arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences that together comprise the disciplinary sources of historical knowledge. They enable historical understanding to be culturally and linguistically sensitive to the subjects of historical inquiry.
