Program Overview

For prospective students with a passion in history, who wish to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive within such fields as historic preservation, law, museum curacy, or education, the Bachelor of Arts in History degree from King University is an ideal opportunity. An online-based program, this Bachelor’s degree provides flexibility and support for hard-working students with hectic schedules and bustling lives. A Presbyterian institution based in Bristol, Tennessee, King University instills its graduates with the writing, speaking, analytical, and communicative skills needed to thrive in the field of history.

This program requires the completion of 36 credits under the history major, adding to the total of 124 credit hours required to graduate from King University. 20 of these are core credits, which allow students to take classes on the Middle Ages, early US history, modern European history, and Chinese history and politics.

Once enrolled in this program, students can choose to pursue two “tracs”: Integrative or Standard History. The first is geared towards those who wish to take on a double major, supplementing course work from another discipline; of the 36 required credits, 28 are devoted to the history core, while 16 hours of history-related credits in a different field can count towards the remaining 8 credits. Acceptable companion fields with which to pair the history major for this “trac” include but are not limited to biblical studies, music, theater, and foreign languages. The Standard History “trac,” the second option, requires the completion of a minimum 20 credit hours at or above the 3000-level, and 4 credits to meet the History of Ideas requirement, which allows students to choose from courses on the subjects of ancient and modern political thought, the European mind since the Enlightenment, and the intellectual and cultural history of the United States.
