Africa, Britain, Greece -- these three specialties of the History department faculty
members at King University show a little of our breadth. The History department offers an atmosphere
where you will get to know other students and your faculty well. The department works
for depth in the college classroom and extracurricular activities.
As a History major, you will take a variety of courses. Topics range from the Tudor
and Stewart monarchies to sub-Saharan African history to the effects of 9/11 on American
politics. Your professors hold Ph.D.s from top research institutions and pursue scholarships,
but are also committed to dynamic classroom teaching and careful student advising.
The standard History major requires 36 semester hours of coursework. Another alternative
is an Integrative track, which streamlines double-majors in other historically-related
fields such as Philosophy and Religion, English, Fine Arts and French or Spanish.
The Integrative track requires 28 semester hours in History along with 16 semester
hours in the second discipline. You can also work toward Secondary Education licensure
in History by adding a Secondary Education minor.
Outside the classroom, the student-led History and Political Science Society arranges
social events, and the department holds biannual picnics. Our majors have participated
in numerous travel programs, from Austria to London to Prague. Recent internships
have included work in an AIDS hospice in South Africa, the Tennessee state legislature,
a living history museum, and the FBI.
As a History major, you will be prepared to continue your study in graduate school
or to enter the job market in a variety of fields.
Several distinctions have been attained by King University History graduates, including
a Rhodes Scholarship, a Nobel Institute Fellowship, a Teach for America placement,
and numerous law school scholarships and graduate school fellowships. Recent graduates
have gone to further study at:
English teacher in Korea
Swedish Embassy secretary
Teach for America teacher in Harlem
US Department of Labor Deputy Director
US Department of State consultant
