The history major requires twelve courses (36 credits). Students must take two introductory level courses, of which one is selected from courses numbered 1000–1099 and one from courses numbered 1100–1999. Three courses (9 credits) are required at the 2000 level. Three elective courses (9 credits) are required at the 3000 level. All history majors take two required writing seminars: in the Junior year, students take a 3000 level writing course and in the Senior year, they take a complimentary Capstone course at the 4000 level. All writing intensive courses end in -96, -97 or -98. Finally, students may select two history courses (6 credits) at any level. Within these broad requirements, students must complete a minimum of two courses in U.S. history, two courses in European history, and three courses in Asian, African, Latin American or Global/Comparative history. Two of the courses in any category or level must be predominantly pre-1900 in content. Students should take four courses that represent an area of concentration based on some geographic or thematic intellectual rationale. The area of concentration should be defined in writing and approved by a departmental advisor ideally at the start of the junior year and no later than the start of the senior year. History Honors Program: To participate in the History Honors Scholar Program, you must first apply to the University Honors office. Any History major who has earned or is in the process of earning 60 credits and has roughly a 3.7 cumulative GPA can apply for the program. Temple History graduates have gone into a wide range of careers; business, law, politics, education, historical preservation, and information resources are just a few of the many areas. History arms the student for a maximum amount of flexibility for career choices.
