3. A History major may obtain special permission from the Department to count a course other than one of those listed above towards the Major.

To meet the needs of a particular student's program, the History Department will consider counting a course not specifically listed as a History course (or its equivalent) towards the requirements of a Major in History if the course can be shown to be substantially historical in content and context. Each such request is judged on its own merits and approval can by no means be taken for granted. We may suggest students take such courses as an elective, but we do, however, wish to allow a legitimate degree of flexibility and imagination in the programof a History major.
