Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
The history degree program offered at Minnesota’s Crown College provides graduates with a Bachelor of Arts and offers a solid preparation for those preparing for graduate studies in history, law school or seminary. The program can also lead to career opportunities reliant upon a solid knowledge of history such as museums, education, government, business, library science and public administration.
The history bachelor’s degree is also a good choice as a pre-seminary program, offering the biblical and general educational foundation that the American Association of Theological Schools and evangelical seminaries suggest for seminary and ministry-oriented graduate schools.
History Major (B.A.) Courses
At least 30% of this degree, or a minimum of 38 credits, must be at the upper (300-400) level. If you choose to take lower-level Christian Studies core classes (CHM 201 or CHM 210), then you must take enough upper-level general electives to meet this requirement.
* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core and Major Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 125 credits is reached.
1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.
2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.
3 Fine arts courses include music, art, drama, and dance. COM 328 also qualifies as a fine arts elective. (Only three credits of music organizations and/or lessons can be counted toward humanities/fine arts requirements.)
Students apply for departmental acceptance during their sophomore year spring semester or their junior year fall semester. A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA and completion of half of the Christian Service requirements are required for departmental admission in the History major.
