HISTORY AT THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
If you think history is simply a lot of names, dates, and battles, you are in for a surprise. At The Ohio State University history is alive, and it's probably not what you would expect. In today's world, where war, recession, revolution, famine, and social upheaval occur with frightening regularity, history is the key to understanding these crises. History is not a recitation of facts and names, but involves analysis and understanding. History is the sum total of the human experience, and that experience serves as a mirror reflecting today's events.
For students interested in studying history at Ohio State, two academic advisers are available Monday through Friday for more information: Raymond Irwin can be reached at irwin.8@osu.edu (292-6961), and he is located in 110 Dulles Hall, 230 W. 17th Avenue; Maria Mazon can be reached at mazon.1@osu.edu (292-6793) and she is located in144 Dulles Hall.
This brochure includes information about the Department of History at The Ohio State University. It describes the major, the minor, the honors program, course offerings, faculty, and opportunities for post-graduate programs and employment.
This handbook is also listed in the World Wide Web at

THE UNDERGRADUATE HISTORY MAJOR
The History Major consists of a minimum of 33 credit hours at the 2000-level and above. Three courses, History 2800, one 4000-level Readings Seminar and one 4000-level Research Seminar, are required, and at least 24 more hours must be chosen within the categories outlined below.
The student should design his or her History Major in consultation with their Academic Advisor, who must sign the Major Program form. The student should select History courses to complement those courses of the General Education (GE).
OVERVIEW:

The 33 credit hours must fulfill the following four required areas (see below for details):


A) Skills Acquisition (9 credit hours)

B) Breadth (12 credit hours)

C) Concentration (12 credit hours)

D) Progression (included in above credit hours)




  • If students double count courses and fulfill all of the requirements in Categories A-C before reaching the required 33 credit hours (described in the Overview, above), they must still satisfy the 33-credit-houre requirement of the Major. They will fill in the remaining credit hours with History courses of their choosing.

  • A student is never required to exceed 33 credit hours in order to fulfill the requirements in Categories A-C.

  • No more than 3 credit hours of History 3193 or 4193 (“Individual Studies”) may be counted towards the Major Program.

  • No more than 6 credit hours of History 2798, 3798, or 4798 (“Study Tour”) may be counted towards the Major Program.

  • No more than 9 credit hours of 4998, 4998H, 4999, and 4999H may be counted towards the Major Program.

  • With the Academic Advisor's approval, up to 6 credit hours of courses from other Departments may be designated as part of Category B (Breadth) requirements for the Major Program in History.

Category A: Skills Acquisition (9 credit hours)

The following three seminars (9 credit hours) are required of all History majors.


A (1) History 2800: Introduction to the Discipline of History (3 credit hours)

The “gateway” course for History majors, which emphasizes critical reading and writing, and introduces students to the methodologies, approaches, and historiographies of historical study. A student must pass History 2800 with at least a “C.”


A (2) One 4000-level Reading Seminar in History (3 credit hours)

One of the following reading seminars—normally taken in the junior year, and with a focus on historiography, analysis, methodology, and interpretation—is required. Note: History 4193, 4194, 4585 and 4797-4999 do not fulfill this requirement.

Category B: Breadth (12 credit hours)

Overview: Students are required to develop a program that includes chronological and geographic breadth. This includes:



  1. 2 courses (6 credit hours) focusing chronologically on the period before 1750

  2. 2 courses (6 credit hours) focusing chronologically on the period after 1750

  3. 2 courses (6 credit hours) focusing primarily on East Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Central Asia, and South Asia

  4. 2 courses (6 credit hours) focusing primarily on North America and/or Europe

  5. 1 course (3 credit hours) focusing on comparative, transnational, transregional, or global history

(Note: lists of courses that fulfill each of these requirements are below)
** Please note:

  • Students are permitted to use one course to satisfy more than one of these five areas of breadth simultaneously. For example, a course on Ancient Rome would satisfy the pre-1750 requirement and a “Europe” requirement simultaneously. That is, geographical and chronological requirements can be fulfilled by the same course.

  • In addition, the two 4000-level seminars can also fulfill any of these chronological and geographic requirements. That is, A. (2) or (3) can simultaneously satisfy any of the requirements in Category B. For Example, History 4211 (Readings in Roman History) would not only satisfy the A (2) requirement of a Reading Seminar but would also satisfy one pre-1750 requirement and one “Europe” requirement.

  • Courses used to satisfy Category C (Concentration) can simultaneously count towards Category B (see below under Category C for further discussion), and vice versa.

  • As a result, the total of the credit hours required for each of the 5 different sub-categories of Category B “Breadth” do not add up to the 12 credit hours required in this Category. However, as a result of double counting, both within the requirements of Category B and among Categories A-C, no student will be required to take more than 12 distinct credit hours in Category B.


B (1) 2 courses (6 credit hours) focusing on the period before 1750 (courses in this category need not focus on a single region.) The following courses fulfill the pre-1750 requirement.
