Making it easier for University Honors Students to major in History

Due to significant overlap in the course content, we have made students in the University Honors Program exempt from the 100 level requirements for the history major in the following manner: HONRS 101 = HIST 101, HONRS 102 = HIST 102, HONRS 203 (The American Experience) = HIST 112 (this is a historical knowledge core course), and one of the non-western "Encountering" courses (Encountering Asia, Africa, Latin America, or the Middle East) = HIST 104. In effect this means that honors students can do a history major in eight instead of twelve courses.
