Students are strongly encouraged to take Level 100 and 200 courses which feature a wide range of topics and center on the critical interrogation of primary sources in context.
*All Level 200 History courses (except the 200 Seminars, or those that carry WAC) are appropriate for first-year students.
CREDIT FOR PREVIOUS COURSEWORK
