“Any fool can make history, but it takes a genius to write it.” -Oscar Wilde
To apply to the University of Maryland, please visit the University Admissions website.
Students wishing to declare history as a major need to attend the history majors workshop, held at the advising office. The advisor will go over the program, requirements, internships, study abroad, etc. After the general information session the advisor meets with each student to plan a curriculum to meet their personal interests. The workshop lasts about 15-20 minutes, depending on how many students attend.
An undergraduate advisor assists each major in planning a curriculum to meet their personal interests. A program plan, approved by the advisor, should be filed with the department as soon as possible. We recommend that students meet with an assigned advisor once every semester or sign a waiver during registration.
All Department of History majors are also required to complete requirements in the College of Arts and Humanities.
Contact the College of Arts and Humanities for advising on General Education (GEN ED) and College requirements.
