Courses Satisfying Core Requirements of the College

There are many course offerings in the Department of History and Classics that may be used to satisfy the core proficiencies needed for graduation. We offer courses that satisfy all of the core requirements in Writing I, Writing II, Oral Communication, Civic Engagement, and Diversity. The Department also offers courses that satisfy the Social Science and Theology 300 level requirements. Students are thus able to complete courses that are necessary for the major while at the same time working towards fulfillment of the core requirements. That flexibility allows many of students to double major.
