History Major with Inclusive Early Childhood/Childhood Education Major


Return to ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z Return to: ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z

The department of history and political science is committed to developing in students an understanding of the importance of the past in human experience. This past serves as a foundation and frame of reference for their pursuit of knowledge in the classroom and in the wider world. Students gain a sophisticated awareness of the discipline of history, discovering that it is more than mere fact-gathering; it involves multiple methods and interpretations of the past. Finally, the department’s goal is that all majors will engage in the dynamic study of history by developing their own insights and interpretations of the past.

Students seeking initial certification at the early childhood and childhood levels may double major in history and inclusive early childhood/childhood education. Students in this double major are required to have a minimum overall GPA of 2.7 before moving into INCH coursework which typically begins fall semester of the junior year.

Core Curriculum Requirements


All Nazareth students complete Core Curriculum coursework as part of their degree requirements. The Core provides a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences while guiding students to pose and explore their own intellectual questions. See Academic Policies and Procedures  for specific core curriculum requirements. 

History Core


The History Core provides the foundation for all of our programs. Students are required to take 15 credits as follows:

History Requirements


In addition to 12 credits of lower division survey work, all majors must take Historical Methodology, History and Historiography and submit a comprehensive portfolio in their last semester.

History Electives (INCL)


Students must select six elective courses (18 credits) in upper division history. Some upper division political science courses may be substituted with the approval of the department chairperson. 

Special Note


The department highly recommends for students pursuing this education program the following two courses:

History Senior Experience


Seniors will take a writing-intense research seminar. The purpose of the course will be to apply their skills as serious students of history to a research project of their own design. The seminar’s topic will be based on the participating faculty member’s current research interest, but will be sufficiently broad to allow students to develop research projects in their own fields of interest. Each student will engage in an extensive search for sources, including both primary and secondary documents. These sources will serve as the foundation of a formal research paper, which will be the culmination of the student’s efforts in the course, and which will represent their efforts at historical interpretation.

Writings from the seminar will be included within the portfolio format of the Senior History Comprehensive.
