The History/Administrative Studies Major
The History/Administrative Studies major is designed to combine the discipline of History, with its emphasis on changes in society over time, with the study of administrative behavior, the development of public policy, and the tools of decision making.
The addition of an Administrative Studies component provides History majors with analytical administrative skills as well as familiarity with the theories and policies of public administration. The concepts of organizational behavior and decision making, when combined with the perspectives provided through the History major, ought to be of particular value to those planning to enter careers in business; federal, state, or local levels of public or private administration; government work or to those planning to attend a professional school of administration or to those utilizing the major in a variety of positions in the public or private sector.
The major requirements for the B.A. degree in History/Administrative Studies are as follows:
History requirements (52 units): All requirements for the B.A. in History
Administrative Studies requirements (37 units)
Note: In filling the dual requirements of the selected major, students may not count more than two courses toward both parts of their total requirements (History requirements and Administrative Studies requirements).
