Total Credit Hours 120

Program Description

Clayton State has offered a B.A. in History since the fall semester 2003. Our former students are now teaching high school or college-level history, working for historical agencies, museums and archives, practicing law, holding federal and state government jobs, managing businesses and providing financial advice, pursuing advanced degrees, and serving the communities in which they live. Our graduates have discovered the many different things you can do with a history degree.

Students in Clayton State's undergraduate history major program can take classes in a variety of different areas of World and American history. Our program is enriched and enhanced by the location of the Georgia Archives and the National Archives at Atlanta adjacent to campus. Due to the flexibility of the history major, Clayton State students may pursue one of a variety of minors, such as Spanish or Philosophy. In this way, our history curriculum equips graduates with the knowledge and background required for either graduate study or perhaps direct entry into the world of work.
