Majors must take five history courses (15 credits) in one selected field of concentration. That field may be geographical (e.g. the United States, Europe, Asia), as listed in the catalogue, or students may design a thematic field in consultation with the undergraduate adviser.
Majors must also take six courses (18 credits) outside their area of concentration, for breadth.
The history department urges students to take no more than six credits of history at a time.
Total Credits for the major: 33 (with a GPA > 2 in the major, and overall). Of those 33 credits, 20 must be completed on the CCNY campus.
