To qualify for the Majors or Honours program in History
- you need 12 credits of lower-division History taken during your first and second years,
- including 6 credits of courses at the 200-level.
There are no specific course prerequisites for upper-division history courses. History credits transferred from other institutions also meet the requirements for the Major. UBC Arts One, IB, and AP students may receive 6 lower-division history credits.
In order to apply for a Major you will need to download the Advising Form, complete it, and see a History Department Advisor in person to get it approved.
