History Degree Requirements
- NOTE: The guide sheet you go by is the one in use at the moment you MATRICULATED into Kean University
These guide sheets are the template you must use in order to take all the courses required for your degree. Consult with a faculty member when registering for classes and always bring a copy of your guide sheet with you for advisement and registration.
Also, history/education majors MUST contact their education department advisor as well.
Guide sheets for Early Childhood, Elementary, and Middle School including those with dual certification (Bilingual and Special Ed) with history specialization are not in the History Dept but in ESME located in Hutchinson 3rd floor.
It is the responsibility of each student to follow the guide sheets, take the appropriate classes, and seek advising.
Do not wait until you think you are ready to graduate before getting this information in order. Poor attention to the guide sheet can result in you not graduating when you hoped to.
