[Appropriate courses can be pre-determined for each discipline or they can be determined “on demand,’ that is, as students apply for the Co-Major Program.  Either way, they should be consistent from semester to semester]

* Only one (1) degree option has been created based on the wants and needs of students, the interests and expertise of faculty, and the versatility of the discipline curriculum.  There are many more Co-Discipline  Options that can be created in relation to History, i.e. as many Major Programs as there are offered at your college or university, depending upon the versatility of the various curricula.  History is a highly diversified major capable of being “Co-Disciplined” by many of the Major Programs offered at any college or university.  Consider History and Psychology, History and Sociology, History and Politics, History and Athletics, History and Economics, History and Business, History and Theater, etc.
