Major in History

The History Major at UC Merced

History majors learn to do the work of historians, researching and writing about the past. All history majors complete a capstone project — a major research paper on a subject of their choosing.

History majors have the option to do an internship that exlores the ways history can be used in cultural, social and political institutions.
