Introductory Courses (6 credits required)
One introductory survey (course numbered 1XX)
One additional introductory course, chosen from any 1XX or 2XX course home-based or cross-listed in history AND taught by history department faculty.
12 additional units, 9 of which must be at the 3XX or 4XX level.
1. A score of 5 on the AP European, U.S., or World History examination will constitute completion of History 102C, 163, or 164 respectively, and 3 units of credit equivalent to History 102C, 163, or 164 will be awarded, for a maximum of 6 credits towards the major and/or minor. A score of 4 on any of these exams may earn 3 units of elective credit but will not be counted towards the major or minor.
2. All 18 units must be separate courses not double-counted toward the major or another minor. Courses in the minor may not be taken credit/no-credit.
3. The Department recognizes that some students take their first history course, or develop an interest in declaring a minor in History, only in their junior year, and then face a dilemma in choosing between required introductory courses and upper-level course work more appropriate to their abilities. Such students, with the recommendation of their advisor in History, may petition the Director of Undergraduate Studies to permit a designated upper-level course to substitute for one of the introductory courses. In all such cases, the minimum number of units in the minor remains 18.
