If you are interested in our innovative History program but prefer the accessibility of online classes, this is a terrific option for you.

This online option has the same requirements as our existing BA in History, and it is led by the same faculty who teach our in-person courses. Our commitment to you is a series of regularly scheduled online courses in the BA in History that will allow you to progress through the program.
