Following the campus guidelines for Coronavirus all UC Davis classes, lectures, seminars, labs and discussion sections will move to virtual instruction and remain virtual through the end of fall quarter 2020, including final exams. Given this, the department’s administrative functions have moved to remote work conditions. To contact staff members of the department via e-mail or phone, please go to our administrative staff contact page. 

Second-year experience

You will begin upper division courses for the history major at this time.

Make sure to track your upper division degree requirements and meet with an academic adviser regarding the design of your major. Note that the Department of History discourages students from taking any more than two history courses within the same quarter.

We also urge students to request a degree check from the College of Letters and Science Dean's Office.

If you are interested in studying abroad or in internships, you may want to start accounting for these opportunities in your academic planning now, because most students pursue study abroad and/or internships during their third and fourth years.

This also is an opportune time to start thinking about enriching your on-campus experiences. The Center for Student Involvement is a valuable resource in helping students discover on-campus organizations and activities.
