A degree in history allows a student to expand critical thinking and writing capacities while gaining a new understanding our past and present. Students may cast a wide net to explore the histories of Africa, the Ancient World, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and the United States.
The major in history requires 31 semester hours in history, including a 4000 level seminar that serves as the capstone course for the major, and one course from each of these three areas: United States history; European history; and Asian, Middle East, Latin American, and African history.
The minor in requires 18 semester hours in history with at least 9 hours coming from upper division courses.
The study of history is nourished by the examination of other disciplines. Trinity's history department works cooperatively with other departments to offer a wide array of interdisciplinary majors and minors.
