History Department Courses

When possible, syllabi are provided along with course descriptions. Please note that instructors may alter readings and assignments as needed.


Undergraduate Courses

History 201-206 seminars are open to history majors only during pre-registration. If the course does not reach its enrollment maximum, it will be open to all students beginning with drop/add on a first-come first-serve basis.

211-216 are advanced seminars, mainly for juniors and seniors in the Benjamin Franklin Scholars Program. All other students need permission from the instructor to enroll in these courses.

300-400 level courses are on special topics and are more advanced. They often presuppose some basic knowledge in the field and should be more difficult courses than courses at the 1-199 levels. The department is trying to insure that some 400 level courses, although substantially more difficult, are also small in size; they thus may be suitable for graduate students.


Graduate Courses

All courses numbered 500 and above are graduate courses. Graduate students may also take Undergraduate 400 Level Courses for graduate credit.

Undergraduates need to submit a course permit to enroll.
