This recommended four-year plan is designed to provide a blueprint for students to complete their degrees within four years. These plans are the recommended sequences of courses. Students must meet with their Major Advisor to develop a more individualized plan to complete their degree. This plan assumes that no developmental courses are required. If developmental courses are needed, students may have additional requirements to fulfill which are not listed in the plan and degree completion may take longer.

NOTE: This recommended Four-Year Plan is applicable to students admitted into the major during the 2013-2014 academic year.

NOTES:

Consult with your advisor to tailor this plan to your individual circumstances and interests.
HIST 109 and HIST 110 is recommended over HIST 105 and HIST 106 respectively.
* Take the Placement Tests as soon as possible.
** Continuing language learning is strongly recommended (and may be required if you place into Foundations I or II).
*** Take HIST 201: Historiography as soon as possible before enrolling in other 200/300 level HIST courses.

Minimum major requirement is SIX 200/300-level HIST electives beyond HIST 201.  If you continuously studied language in your first two years, you may still need HIST electives.

(GenEd-International Issues) is best fulfilled by completing Intermediate I Language which is part of the SSAIS School Core. Otherwise, choose a 200/300-level HIST course that fulfills that category.

(GenEd-Intercultural North America) is best fulfilled by choosing a 200/300-level HIST course that fulfills that category.

With your free electives, consider a minor or second major.
