To earn the double major, students must fulfill all requirements of each degree. However, a maximum of two courses from History may count toward GLS requirements with the following stipulations:
- GLS Students can use Social Foundations I to count for one of their history pre-1800 requirements and Social Foundations II for an Intro European requirement.
- Any of the capstone seminars in the department of History will also count as meeting one of the GLS senior seminar requirements (note capstone seminars can be completed any year once the Workshop prerequisite is satisfied).
- Courses with a significant transnational content will also count toward meeting the GLS Advancedn Global Topics requirement (usually completed while abroad during junior year). Examples of possible courses include HIST-UA 9745 Contemporary Latin American History, HIST-UA 9012 Modern Europe, HIST-UA 9452 Immigration, HIST-UA 9290 Comparative Fascism, HIST-UA 9510 French-African Relations, HIST-UA 9525 Orientalism, HIST-UA 9553 Historian of Palestinian-Israeli Conflict, HIST-UA 9570 History of West Africa, and HIST-UA 9091 Birth of Democracy in Europe. A list of approved history courses that satisfy the Other courses may be approved by mutual agreement from both departments.
- GLS Students interested in the double major are strongly encouraged to take the Workshop during their sophomore year.
