Non-Western History Requirement
A student who wishes to work on a project with a faculty member may ask that instructor
to supervise an Independent Study (HI 496). A detailed plan of study, drawn up by the
instructor and the student, is required. Ordinarily faculty members do not supervise
Independent Studies on topics covered in regularly scheduled classes.
History students are required to
develop competence in one or more foreign languages and to use this competence in
their historical reading and research. Knowledge of a foreign language is particularly
important for students planning graduate work.
