Course Requirements

Lower Division Courses

In addition to the Common Core, students take 5 courses at the 100 or 200 level. The 100-level indicates that the course examines global history or large regions of the world. The 200-level indicates that the course has a narrower national or thematic focus. Note: HON 102 HISTORY IN GLOBAL CONTEXTS may be counted toward this lower division requirement.

Students must complete a preparatory 300-level "gateway" course before entering into a linked section of HST 390 CAPSTONE IN HISTORICAL RESEARCH AND WRITING with the faculty's permission. The gateway course will count as one of the 6 upper division courses.
