Programs in History and Political Science

As a history student, you’ll be learning from some of the most respected history scholars in the country in an intimate setting. And you’ll have the opportunity to do research alongside these accomplished historians.

The history and political science department offers a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science in History, as well as several minors. As a history major, you can also couple a Bachelor of Arts in History with a secondary teacher education certificate, which certifies you to teach history in grades 9-12 in the state.

(This program is approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.  Students intending to teach in other states are responsible for investigating the reciprocity agreement of that state agency.)
