Recommendations for the Major
Students are encouraged to take the required Historical Methods course in their sophomore years so that they can apply the skills acquired in this class to future 3000 and 4000 level courses.
Students interested in studying abroad are recommended to do so in their junior years so that any research done while away from UMass Lowell can be used while taking the 4320 research seminar in their senior years.
Students who anticipate entering the History department MA program at UMass Lowell are encouraged to complete 45 credits (unless they are earning a second major); such students are further encouraged to gain experience in primary source research and the composition of an independent research paper/project; this can be obtained through a Directed Study, a Research Seminar, a Special Topics course, a graduate-level course, or selected 3000- and 4000-level courses. Such students are also encouraged to enroll in the FastTrack program in the department during the fall and spring of the Senior year, and thus to apply to it in the spring of the Junior year.
Students who anticipate entering the Graduate School of Education (GSE) at UMass Lowell should complete the maximum of 45 credits in History, including both halves of the US History survey. Such students are also encouraged to enroll in the FastTrack program at the GSE during the fall and spring of the Senior year, and thus to apply to it in the spring of the Junior year.
