- History 21 A, B, C (these may be taken out of sequence)
- Global Cultures 103 A, 103 B and 191 (Capstone Seminar)
GC 103 A should ideally be taken before GC 103 B but you may take them concurrently or reverse the order if scheduling problems arise. (GC 103 A and B are topics vary courses and so may be repeated for credit if the topic changes).
The Senior Seminar G.C. 191 is best taken in the senior year but may be taken before if it cannot be accommodated into the studentÊ¼s final yearÊ¼s schedule.
