History requires a minimum of 60 credits to complete the major. A grade of “C-” or better is required for each course counting towards the major and a cumulative GPA of 2.00 is required for completion of the major. S/U courses may not be elected for program requirements.
NOTE: It is IMPERATIVE that students planning to teach consult with Education advisers as early as possible. ED 142 - Education Orientation (1) is strongly recommended. Students planning to teach in secondary must have a BA/BS in an appropriate content area and may earn licensure through the MAT program. History majors are advised to obtain additional breadth in the social sciences to prepare for the current State Mandated Content Examination and to be prepared to teach the social studies courses offered in Oregon’s high schools which include U.S. History, government, world civilization, and economics.
