Studying history enhances a student's ability to think and reason, to communicate effectively, and to organize systematically, evaluate, and interpret information. These are essential skills demanded of today's young professionals and graduate students.

A major in History for the B.A. degree at the University of Mississippi consists of a minimum of 33 semester hours, which may include a maximum of three survey-level courses (100-level courses) and must include at least one advanced research course from Hst 494, 498, or 499. 

Of these 33 hours, students must take at least 6 hours in each of the department's three main focus areas: a) American history, b) European history, and c) histories of other regions. The Department of History website has the list of courses that meet these three areas. History majors should also take courses that reflect the chronological diversity of course offerings.
