The history program encourages its students to carve out their own research pathways. Pathways can be straight or meandering, cover one area exhaustively or take a student across broad stretches. Even though you are required to selected one of three geographic regions - the Americas and Africa, Europe, or Asia and the Islamic World - as your primary area of focus, we encourage you to also think about your degree progress along thematic lines: religion, social movements, science and environment, and gender, to name a few.

Pathways are for advising purposes only. A list of undergraduate history courses and the requirements each satisfies can be found in the Catalog of Course Requirements.
