Professional Studies Tracks  

Everything has a history, and everyone has an historian inside them waiting to be awakened. Whatever path you choose in life, history can provide meaningful context and contribute to your success. It can make you a better scientist or doctor, environmentalist or lawyer, curator or archivist. Tapping into your inner historian with a career focus can be a fulfilling option for your future. Think about pursuing one of these Professional Studies Tracks in our department:  
Each Professional Studies Track consists of 9 hours of selected coursework that fit within the existing history major requirements; choosing to pursue a Professional Studies Track does not add additional hours to the major. The aim is to focus on the historical background and research methods specific to a particular field. Students interested in completing one of the Professional Studies Tracks should contact the department’s Undergraduate Advisor no later than the semester prior to graduation.
