The goal of History at BYU-Idaho is to encourage students to develop a solid understanding of United States, European, and World History, and a sense of the complexities of human experience. This History Department offers BA degrees in History, History Education, and Social Science Education Composite. The department also sponsors a chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honors Society. Upon graduation students should have a capacity to do quality research—using primary and secondary source materials— along with strong reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. In addition, History Education graduates should have developed a sizeable repertoire of lessons, pedagogies, and approaches to history for teaching at the secondary level.
