In the freshman year students may wish to substitute HST 101 & 102; they will need to complete the diversity requirement with another course.  Students are encouraged to earn a minor or a concentration in addition to the major.  Students who wish to complete an advanced degree in history should talk with an adviser concerning foreign language competence.  The term “elective” may not be completely “free” in that this table does not address the university requirement of having 32 credits at the 300/400 level.  

Please note: Student on scholarship or financial aid must be in a minimum of 12 credits per semester
