giving special assistance to students who are admitted to the University on
academic warning or probation. These students are assigned temporarily to the
department regardless of their choice of major subject. Specific policies and
procedures apply to these students and will be mailed to them at the time
of their admission to the University. Generally, these students are given the
opportunity of enrolling in an effective study class and in selected sections of
classes that are purposely kept smaller than the average and are taught by
teachers who can devote more than the average amount of time to the needs
of individual students. After students have completed their effective study class
and have achieved the minimum grade-point average for full academic standing
(1.75 for freshmen and 2.00 for all others), they are given assistance in selecting
and transferring to the college major of their choice.

Reading Laboratory. The reading laboratory is administered by the Guided
Studies Department. The lab was created to help sudents who have specific
difficulty in coping with the reading and study demands of university life.
Students who find themselves in academic difficulty and who suspect the diffi-
culty is the result of reading problems are encouraged to avail themselves of
the diagnostic and help facilities of the lab. This service is available without
charge to all full-time students.

Continuing Education. On a fee basis, the Division of Continuing Education of
the University offers developmental reading and listening improvement courses.
Students may learn more about these courses by contacting the Department of
Special Courses and Conferences.

The History Department offers preparation for careers in teaching, law, business,
government service, or graduate work in history. A study of history through
careful analysis of past civilizations and problems in context provides insights
into the problems of today and fosters a greater appreciation of the world
about us. History offers a corrective to the tendency to view problems from a
simplistic or narrow i>erspective; for history is, above all, a humanizing and
broadening experience, and a discipline that helps us distinguish the important
from the transient and discover what really matters in our existence. It is the
role of historians, furthermore, to preserve our great cultural heritage and to
help interpret it for the improvement of present and future generations.

The History Department provides instruction leading to the B.A., M.A., and
Ph.D. degrees.

Requirements for a Major in History

Students may study Asian, European, Latin American, or United States history,
but must not present all of their preparation in a single area. In order to en-
courage students to broaden their course work, it is required that at least
one upper-division course each from the Americas, Asia, and Europe be included
in the program.

A history major requires the completion of 35 hours of work in the field.
Courses required are History 100, 110, 111, 170, and 270, taken in the freshman
and sophomore years. Majors who seek certification in secondary education are
required to take History 466. History 488 is required for those students who
intend to pursue graduate study in history; it is recommended for others also,
especially for prospective high school teachers. History 490 is required of all
majors and should be taken during the senior year. The remaining elective
hours should be selected in consultation with a department adviser. Not more
than 14 hours of lower-division work in history may be applied toward the
major. No D credit will be accepted in upper-division history classes.

History majors are required to take the foreign language option rather than
the mathematics-statistics-logic-science option for general education. Any excep-
tion to this must be approved by the history department chairman. Students, for
example, who are planning careers in areas emphasizing the sciences or requiring
statistical methods should contact the chairman to work out an alternative

A minor field is not required for the history major. In its place the student
shall select, with his adviser's approval, 15 hours of supporting classes from
among the basic courses in the colleges of social sciences or humanities.


The requirements for a teaching major or minor in history and for the
composite major in social sciences, which includes history, are found in the
Education section of this catalog.

Requirements for a History Minor

A departmental minor in history is offered for those who desire it. It consists
of 20 hours of work, including History 110, 111, 170, 270, plus 8 hours of upper-
division course work.
