Students in these bachelor’s degree programs receive a broad foundation in United States history and Western Civilization and may, in consultation with their advisor, design their own course of study incorporating coursework from throughout the university. This can be a general course based in United States, European or world studies, or students may organize their degree around a specific concentration such as American History, European History, Military History or Middle Eastern Studies.

The comprehensive online history degree program at SNHU offers flexibility not offered in many other undergraduate programs in history.
