Civics and History

Civics and History

You are required to take law, western civilization, 2 semesters of history, and non-western civilization, AND civics to graduate (view all graduation requirements). That’s a whole lot of classes, so it’s a good idea to start in your first semester of your freshman year.

I’d recommend taking Minority Perspectives with Marion. It provides an enlightening view of real American history by comparing our traditional history book with A People’s History of the United States1 and other non-traditional textbooks.
