Thirty undergraduates received a major in History this Spring: 15 with a Bachelor of Arts from the College of A&S and 15 from the College of Education's concurrent degree program in History and Secondary Education. Nine more students received a minor in History, and five of our graduate students were awarded the Master of Arts degree in History. Commencement exercises took place Saturday, May 10th.
