It is highly desirable that students acquire skills in reading and speaking a language other than English, taking their level of proficiency beyond the minimum university requirement.


*HIST 020 , 014F , or 014S  is a prerequisite for each course and both HIST 102  and 103  should ordinarily be taken in the first and/or second year of study in preparation for taking Seminar in junior or senior year.
