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.

Under certain circumstances and 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(or its equivalent) towards the requirements of a Major in History if the course can be shown to have substantial historical content. Each such request is judged on its own merits and a decision can by no means be taken for granted. We do, however, wish to allow a legitimate degree of flexibility and imagination in the program of a History major.
