Cadet History Club and Phi Alpha Theta
If you are a cadet (any class, any major) with a passion for history (any period, any place), then join the Cadet History Club! Past activities of the Club have included movie screenings, day trips to historical sites in the Charleston area, and overnight trips to historical sites further afield.
Successful undergraduate history majors and graduate students are invited every spring to join the Citadel chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, an international honor society for history students. Current cadet Phi Alpha Theta members may choose to operate as a club, with activities (including field trips). They may also make presentations of research at the annual Phi Alpha Theta conference.
For more information about our History Club and Phi Alpha Theta, contact the Department main office.

The Undergraduate Major
Are you are a Citadel undergraduate or prospective student who wants to be a History major? Here are two important resources to get you started: All requirements for the major, including descriptions of all standard courses in the major, are in this excerpt from the Cadet course catalog (2011-12). The expected four-year course of study is laid out in this other excerpt from the Cadet course catalog (2011-12). You should study both of these carefully and understand them well before meeting with an advisor or registering for courses.
