CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN HISTORY IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 259, in the section DEGREES, make the following changes:

History

Major:
Thirty semester hours of history, including at least [twelve] fifteen hours of upper-division coursework. At least six hours of coursework must be in United States history[; at least nine hours must be in non‘United States history. Of the nine hours in non‘United Stated history, at least three hours must be in European history and at least three hours must be in non‘European history (Latin American, African, Asian, and Middle Eastern)], at least six must be in European history, and at least six must be in Latin American, African, Asian, or Middle Eastern history. At least [T] three hours of non-United States history must be in upper-division coursework. All history majors must take History 350L as part of their thirty semester hours.

Minor for history majors: Twelve semester hours, including at least six hours of upper-division coursework, in any one other field of study in the University. Six of the required twelve hours must be taken in residence. If the minor is in a foreign language other than that used to fulfill the Area A foreign language requirement, the twelve hours may be lower-division but must include at least six hours beyond course 507 or the equivalent.

Rationale: We increased the number of upper-division hours to bring our upper-division requirement closer to the average Liberal Arts department. We also increased the number of Non-Western classes that students must take to simplify the presentation of our geographic area requirements.
