The history department offers courses at several levels.

First Year Seminars introduce history as a field of inquiry and are open only to first-year students.

The 100-level regional surveys focus on particular geographic areas; they have no prerequisites and are open to all students.

All students are welcome to take 200-level courses, which examine particular times and places in history and range in size from large survey courses to small seminars.

The department’s 300-level courses (colloquium and research seminars) offer opportunities to examine topics in depth; if permission of the instructor is indicated, please complete and submit the 300-Level Application Form.
