Declare History

How to Declare History as a Concentration:

  1. Fill out the History Concentration Form. Fill the form out as completely as possible, including envisioned future courses. This will be the basis for conversations with your advisor.

  2. Meet with your Concentration Advisor. Click here for a list of concentration advisors and their office hours. Bring the draft History Concentration Form to the meeting. Your Concentration Advisor will determine whether your plan fulfills all requirements. If necessary, he or she will suggest alternatives. Be sure any questions you have are answered. Please be advised: Concentration Advisors are always very busy during the week before the filing deadline. Students are advised to see their advisors well in advance of this deadline. See the Registrar's Office Calendar for more information.

  3. Obtain Declaration of Concentration Forms from the Registrar's Office (or download them from the Registrar's Website). Complete everything on these forms except for list of courses under the "Concentration Plan" on p. 1.

  4. Meet again with your Concentration Advisor to answer remaining questions and finalize the ten courses to be listed on the History Concentration Form and the Concentration Plan on p. 1 of the Declaration of Concentration form.

  5. Submit the Declaration of Concentration to the Registrar's Office. Submit History Concentration Form to the staff in the History Department office.
