Declaring a Major or Minor
Students who wish to declare a major or minor in history should pick up declaration form from the registrar's office in Founders Hall. Students will need to get the signatures of both the department chair, Dr. Jane Simonsen, as well as a history advisor of their choosing. Finally, students will need to return the signed form to the registrar's office. Dr. Simonsen can be reached by email or at 309-794-7467.
Meeting with a departmental advisor is essential. The department recommends that students arrange one meeting per term with a history advisor to plan the student's schedule of classes. In addition, department advisors will work with students on planning summer internships, study abroad, and career options.
