Crown College 2017-2018 Catalog

History Major (B.A.)


This major is designed for students who desire a broad liberal arts education. The history program includes the Christian Studies core, a strong general education distribution of courses, and the major emphasis in history. The content and skills learned from a history major are a first step toward a variety of careers including business, civil service, education, journalism, library science, and public administration. A history major can serve as an excellent pre-seminary or legal studies program and as the foundation for graduate study in history and other fields such as political science and social service. The elective hours in the history program may be applied toward a number of concentrations and minors.

Program Requirements


Christian Studies Core


I. Christian Studies - 24 Credits


General Education Core


II. General Education - 40 Credits


Major Core


III. History Major - 42 Credits


IV. Electives - 19 Credits *


  • Electives 11 Credits
  • 300-400 Electives 8 Credits

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.

Total - 125 Credits


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.)
