The Department offers over seventy courses and seminars each year on an extremely wide variety of subjects, times and places. In fact, the program provides one of the greatest and most diverse selections of courses at Dartmouth. About 60 percent of Dartmouth students takes at least one History course prior to graduation, and some 12 percent actually choose History as their major.
While some courses offered by the Department attract large enrollments, most of its offerings are specialized courses involving small classes, with close contact between students and instructors, and often considerable discussion.
The Department of History offers a Standard Major, a Modified Major, and a Minor. We have recently revised the Standard Major. Our New Standard Major will apply to students in the Class of 2014 and beyond. Students in the classes prior to 2014, for example, in the Classes of 2011, 2012 and 2013, may choose to fulfill the current Standard Major or the New Standard Major. The requirements for each are outlined in the worksheets available for download below. These should be completed in conjunction with the latest "Schedule of History Courses," also available below.
