Undergraduate Courses

The department of history offers a wide variety of courses each semester, and most of these are open to all students. While nearly all courses fulfill the university/college history requirement and can count toward the major, students should consult the course attributes on InsideND before making plans to register for a specific course. In addition, students should be aware that the history department prioritizes seat access for majors.
