The History department at ETSU offers both Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees. Students are also required to declare a minor, preferable one that complements the major in regards to a student's post-graduation plans. History majors must maintain a GPA of at least a 2.5 in all history courses taken, with no grade lower than a C, and maintain a GPA of at least a 2.0 in their minor. This major also have a teacher education option.

The Philosophy department at ETSU provides students with the ability to think critically, communicate clearly, and present effectively as well as provides them with the ability to understand and evaluate their most basic beliefs and values and to integrate them into a coherent view of themselves and the world. The department offers both Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees in either a traditional philosophy or a religious studies concentration. A minor is required for the major unless a student is double majoring.
