Students who pursue the Colloquium track are required to complete twelve courses: six in a major field, five electives, and Historiography. Students must take a Research Colloquium, which may count toward either the major field or the electives. In the Research Colloquium you will have the opportunity to pursue the research and writing of an original research paper. The Colloquium Track is designed for students with broad-ranging interests who want to take more electives, as well as those who are double-majoring. This track also offer greater flexibility to take the Research Colloquium at any time before graduation.
