Are there any prerequisites for History courses?

There are no prerequisites for History courses. That said, students often find that they get more out of a course and do better if they have some familiarity with what history is and what's involved in writing a history essay, particularly for 300 and 400 level courses. This often means completing your 12 credits of lower division History courses before taking courses at the 300- or 400-level. If you have any questions about whether you are adequately prepared to take a course, you should contact the professor who is teaching the course they're interested in.
