History Department College Based Fees Letter to Students 2017-18

March 6, 2018

Dear History Majors and Graduate Students,

In March 2002, CLA students voted to pay additional student fees to support and enhance instructional programs in the college. Student feedback is therefore important to determining how this money is spent.

This year, student feedback was obtained via the CBF Committee, comprised of students Gabriela Shy, Sean Leavey, and Brian Gounod, and faculty Matt Hopper and Kate Murphy.

This year all CBF money went to support course offerings in the department. We use this money to save seats in GE courses for History majors and to enable us to offer small enrollment courses such as HIST 303, HIST 304, HIST 504, and 500-level graduate seminars.

For the 2017-18 Academic Year, CBF money was used to support the following courses:

  • HIST 111 Western Civilization: Reformation to the Present
  • HIST 201 United States History to 1865
  • HIST 202 United States History Since 1865
  • HIST 213 Modern Political Economy
