Scheduling Tips

  • Register for HIS 200 before it fills. This is a required course for Social Studies majors. If you have questions about when to register, please ask an advisor.
  • Be sure to take HIS 299: Introduction to Historical Studies early in your career at CSU. It provides foundational skills for your major and is a prerequisite for HIS 401.
  • AVOID taking HIS 401 with AT II. Meet with your history department advisor to plan accordingly.

New Course Highlights

These courses haven’t been offered recently or are new to the schedule:

European History: Dr. Lehfeldt is offering HIS 343 The Black Death in Europe, which counts towards the European History course for your double major with history.

For an overview of 20th Century European History register for HIS 353: 20th Century Europe with Dr. Cole. This course counts as the one European History course for your double major with history.

Transnational/Nonwestern Sequence: Dr. Rose is offering HIS 471: Politics of Protest and Gender (take the course tour) which counts towards your nonwestern history sequence.
