The undergraduate program in History is designed to develop critical intelligence and to foster an awareness of ourselves and our world through the study of the past. The Department presents a variety of approaches to history, and each emphasizes basic disciplinary skills: weighing evidence, constructing logical arguments, and exploring the role of theory in historical analysis and human action.

The Department offers a number of lower-division courses open to majors as well as non-majors, most of which fulfill part of the UCI general education requirements.

Students who are interested in the study of history but are majoring in other disciplines may minor in History. The minor incorporates elements of the Department’s program for majors but allows students enough flexibility to pursue programs in other departments and schools.

Upper-division courses range from the examination of individual nation-states (e.g., Chinese history), to studies of the relations among nation-states (e.g., Emergence of the Modern Middle East), to historical analyses of political, socio-economic, and cultural factors (e.g., Women in the United States). Students are also provided the opportunity for small-group learning experiences through colloquia. The colloquia are conducted as discussion groups, involve close reading and analysis of primary and secondary texts, and require writing.

In addition, History students have the option of pursuing advanced study through programs offered by the Department, the School of Humanities, and the University. Within the Department of History, students have the opportunity to complete an advanced research seminar series or to design their own research project with a faculty advisor through Independent Study.

Specialization in History for Future Teachers

The Specialization in History for Future Teachers is designed to prepare history majors who aspire to earn a post-baccalaureate teaching credential. Through specific history course requirements, courses in the School of Education, and a field work requirement, students will be well positioned for admission to teaching credential programs.

Phi Alpha Theta

Phi Alpha Theta is a charter member of the Association of College Honor Societies for undergraduates, graduates, and faculty within the discipline of history. Becoming a member to the society will grant you honor cords for graduation and allow eligibility for several national and regional scholarships. To become eligible for initiation, students must have achieved junior standing, have completed seven or more history courses in residence at UCI, and have acquired a minimum 3.5 GPA in the major and a minimum 3.3 GPA overall. For more information, please contact the History Undergraduate Program Coordinator.

Study Abroad

The department strongly encourages majors and minors to take advantage of the University’s study abroad programs and to experience a different culture, for a quarter or longer, while making progress toward their UCI degree. Moreover, students who are particularly interested in the history of a specific country or region would greatly benefit from direct study and cultural interaction within that country or region. Information about studying abroad can be found at UCI's Study Abroad Center website.
