The history department no longer offers the sequence in Western Civilization (HST 101, 102, and 103).

World History (complete sequence) (12)
Choose Two: History of the United States (select two) (8)
HST 420 should be taken the term preceding HST 499. In HST 420 the student will explore the theoretical foundations of the research topic that will become the basis for the HST 499 senior thesis paper.
Students will use a paper completed for upper-division history course at WOU as a foundation for their Senior Seminar thesis. They will revise and expand this topical paper, with history department advisers, across the senior year to complete Senior Seminar (HST 499) in the spring term.
