NOTE ON COURSE CLASSIFICATIONS: The course classifications (i.e. Modern European, U.S., Jewish, Medieval, etc.) are neither formal nor final. A course can count for more than one specialization. Please look at the description of the course, and if you think it might fit into your specialization requirements, but classified under another field, please consult with a member of UNDED. NOTE ON SUBJECT CODES: Courses taught by History core faculty or affiliated faculty normally count for the major and concentration regardless of the subject code used in the Directory of Classes (i.e. AMST, CSER, HSEA, etc.). Please consult with a member of UNDED if you are uncertain about whether a given course counts. NOTE ON REGULARLY CROSS-LISTED COURSES:  Some sections of courses which are regularly cross-listed do not count for majors and concentrators if the instructor is not a member or affiliate of the History Department. These include but are not limited to: AFCV UN1020 – African Civilization, LACV UN1020 – Latin American Civilization, or ASCE UN13xx – Introduction to East Asian Civilization. Please inquire with the Curriculum Coordinator if you are unsure whether a particular section counts.   Please contact our Curriculum Coordinator if you have questions about any course offerings.
