    Course Selection

     No more than 4 courses (8 semester credit hours) may be taken in any one semester.  Please note the dates of each course. Only one course may be taken at a time. Students may not take two courses simultaneously during the summer semester.

    IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COURSE PREFIXES: The AHG prefix has been retired. All courses will now be offered with the prefixes HIST (History) and POLSC (Political Science). Students may choose under which prefix they wish to register. The HIST and POLSC course sections are cross-listed, meaning that while the course is listed under two different prefixes it remains a single section with the same instructor, meeting time, location, and start and end dates. Some students in a section will take the course as HIST, while others will take it as POLSC. The curriculum, readings, assignments, and requirements all remain the same.

    Students who are seeking to become qualified to teach postsecondary history courses should choose the HIST prefix; those seeking to become qualified to teach postsecondary government courses should choose POLSC. If you plan to take coursework with us for transfer to another university, choose the prefix that best matches your program of study (you may also wish to consult with your academic advisor). Those taking courses for teacher licensure renewal are free to take courses under whichever prefix they prefer. Those enrolled in teacher licensure programs should consult with their advisor or state licensure authority to determine which prefix is most appropriate.
