The examination is based on a “Pass” or “Fail” grading system. (Offered each fall and spring semester only.) *Prerequisite: Completion of HIS 103, HIS 400, HIS 451, HIS 452, fifteen credit hours in concentration, and a minimum of 90 credit hours.

A student may take the written examination only twice. The examination should be taken during the final semester prior to graduation. The written examination will be graded by three full-time faculty members. Each member’s numerical score will be added together and divided by three to compose the pass percentage.
