Earning a BA in History at CCSU

The CCSU History Department is the place for a superior, affordable undergraduate education.  Students have the opportunity to work with outstanding history professionals on a daily basis.  Our award winning, highly regarded faculty is made up of both full-time members and adjunct professors who excel in teaching and research.

History classes at CCSU are small and intimate.  You will never be merely one among hundreds.  Rather, our professors know your name, nurture your talents, and work towards your success.  Your achievements are ours too!

Our focus in the undergraduate BA History Degree is to provide students with a broad-based knowledge of the field.  Students will take a variety of history courses, including U.S., European, non-western (such as Asia or Latin America), as well as the Historical Imagination (our rigorous but fun historical methods course), and a senior capstone.  Within all of this, students also have the opportunity to choose elective history courses that meet their own interests.

Interested in a History Minor?

The History Department offers or supervises the following academic minors: History, Public History, Social Studies, and Polish Studies. Current requirements for all of these programs may be found in the Undergraduate Catalog.
