Why It Works
This path specializes in histories of war and society while fulfilling the 49 required credits for the major.
A HIST 407 research seminar is required of all majors and counts toward the overall minimum for upper division credits. The topic in this example (Latin America in the Cold War) also counts toward the Latin America field, if needed.
Spanish is merely a suggestion based on the prevalence of Latin American history courses in this sample path. There are many language options available at UO to fulfill the second language requirement.
