San Francisco State University
History B.A. Honors Concentration
History is the study of change in human societies over time. Undergraduates majoring in history may select advanced courses focusing upon the entire range of life within a nation or region during a given time period, or courses dealing with some specialized aspect of life (social history, economic history, etc.), or courses which explore the concepts and methodology of historical research and analysis.
The history program provides training for those interested in a teaching credential, for those preparing to do graduate work in several fields, and for those who might go on to law school or seek employment in areas such as government service, archival work, and the business sector. The department oversees SF State`s social science subject matter competence program, which qualifies students to apply to secondary education credential programs in the social sciences.
Eligibility for the Honors concentration of the History B.A. depends upon earning a minimum grade of B in each course required for the concentration, and an overall 3.25 GPA in all courses required for the concentration. Students must also demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language at a level comparable to that of students who completed a year of college-level course work.
