CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE

On page 253, in the College of Liberal Arts chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the BACHELOR OF ARTS, PLAN I section, under MAJORS AND MINORS, make the following changes (which include the deletion of footnote number 4):


Ancient History and Classical Civilization4

Major: Thirty-three semester hours of coursework in history, classical civilization, and Greek or Latin, consisting of

1.
Six semester hours of [United States] premodern history. A list of courses that fulfill this requirement is available in the Department of Classics.
2.
[Three] Nine semester hours of [non-United States, non-European] upper-division Greek history and/or Roman history.
[3.
Six semester hours of upper division European history. Greek or Roman history is preferred, but other courses may be used with the consent of the adviser.]
[4.] 3.
Nine semester hours of classical civilization, Greek history, Roman history, Greek, or Latin. Coursework used to fulfill the Area A language requirement may not also be counted toward this requirement.
[5.] 4.
Six semester hours of upper-division Greek or Latin.
[6.] 5.
History 350L [(Topic: Ancient History and Historiography) or another] (a topic in Greek, Roman, or premodern history and/or historiography approved by the undergraduate adviser).

[4. Final approval of this major is pending.]

Rationale: To strengthen the ancient and premodern component of the major, to ensure that the same courses cannot be used for both the Area A and the major requirement, and to increase the number and range of approved senior seminar (History 350L) courses.

Funding: No additional funding is required for these changes.
