Program Overview

The Bachelor of Arts in History at Texas A&M University-Central Texas provides a curriculum that reveals the diversity and complexity of human history and life. By facilitating the development of reading, research, and writing skills we prepare students for diverse careers or graduate school. The BA history can also accommodate a minor or secondary teacher certification.

As a BA History major, you will benefit from educational experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. Each year, we host the annual Central Texas Military History Symposium, which showcases prominent speakers from the military and the academy. Texas A&M University-Central Texas is also home to the Central Texas Historical Archive, which is housed in a state-of-the-art facility in Heritage Hall. This unique, one-million-page archive includes collections on military, diplomatic, and presidential history of the post-World War II era.

Our diverse inventory of upper-level courses including US History, European History, and World History balance the treatment of political, social, military, and diplomatic history in our course offerings.
