ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2024 and after)

*Please Note: Face-to-face/in-person instruction of this program is available ONLY at the main campus in Tallahassee, FL. This program is NOT available via Online/Distance Learning.*

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and diversity requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

Studying History will equip you with transferable skills sought in today’s job market, world cultural literacy, and historical knowledge. FSU's History degree will introduce you to thought­ provoking History courses covering many regions of the world. The History Major at FSU prides itself on both its breadth and depth - yet it will also allow you to focus more on a particular theme or area. In addition to the historical knowledge you will gain, you will learn to research, analyze, and interpret data and to communicate persuasively in both writing and speech. The History Major will allow you to become a confident and informed citizen.

The History Department also participates in the undergraduate programs in Asian, Middle East, Latin American, Caribbean, Russian and East European studies, and the Honors Program.
