History Core

office of international programs

For study-abroad courses that students would like to take for core credit, they must get permission from the Core Moderator (it is strongly suggested that students seek approval before going abroad).  In order for a course taken abroad to fulfill the History Core requirement, it must cover the time periods outlined below (ca. 1300-1800 for the Core I, and 1800 to the present for the Core II) and survey historical developments in a global or world-regional framework; in other words, it may not be national history or the history of binational relations.  For example, "Modern China" will not count, but "East Asia 1800 to the present" will.
