Collection Historical Note

The Social Science department at Illinois State Normal University began in 1934 when the course catalog listed William Beyer as the head of the Social Science department.  At this time, the Social Science department contained courses in Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, and Sociology.  Previous to 1934, these courses and professors were listed independently instead of as a unified department.  This became problematic as professors in the Social Science department were expected to be able to teach any of these courses despite their background.  In 1966, with the beginning of the collegiate structure which consisted of the College of Education, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the College of Applied Science and Technology, the Social Science department was broken up into the Department of Economics, the Department of History, the Department of Political Science, and the Department of Sociology.  In 1971, the Board of Higher Education established the Master Plan-Phase III which suggested the development of a Doctor of Arts program at Illinois State University.  The history department was among the limited number of departments to offer a Doctor of Arts.  The Doctor of Arts program ultimately failed due to lack of resources and the mindset that a Doctor of Arts wasn't as prestigious as a PhD.  The program disestablished in the 1990s with the Illinois Board of Higher Education's strategic planning.  Today, the Department of History offers over 100 undergraduate and graduate courses, a graduate program, a major in history, and four history minors with eight separate specialty instruction in those minors.
