History Major/Organizational Management Dual Degree Program

Degree BA, History (conferred at the completion of bachelor's requirements)

Department Chair David C. Wright, Jr., PhD

Degree MS, Organizational Management (conferred at the completion of master's requirements)

Department Chair Corina Slaff, PhD

The five-year history BA./ organizational management M.S. program allows students to tailor the history major to their future professional interests in management. Constructed in conjunction with the Business department, this program allows students to complete a B.A. in History and an M.S. in Organizational Management over a five-year course of study (completing the remaining 24 credits of coursework for the M.S. typically requires enrollment in the summer, fall and spring immediately following the conferral of the bachelor's degree).

Students are guaranteed admission to the MS program in Organizational Management as long as (1) they maintain a 3.0 cumulative undergraduate gpa; (2) maintain a 3.0 gpa in OM core classes; and (3) complete their BA degree in History as scheduled.
