The History Majors Committee plays a vital role in helping to run the department. Members participate in activities that range from organizing course evaluations to interviewing prospective new faculty. The committee also helps organize events and social service projects.
The Majors Committee serves the needs of history majors to the faculty in various matters of programming, including the evaluations of history courses, the organization of the major, and the general activities of the department.
Any major may volunteer to serve on the committee, but the final composition of the committee must be approved by the History Department faculty.
Members are expected to assist with the following activities:
- Help administer faculty evaluations at the end of each semester
- Meet with candidates for positions in the History department
- Provide specialized input when history faculty undergo evaluation
- Organize events, lectures, social service projects and other programming activities
