This course meets a General Education requirement.

A student should consult the coordinator of the third world studies major as early as possible in the program.

Additional requirements for a major in third world studies:

  1. At least 12 credits (may include SCS387Z or SCS389) must be focused on a single geographic area (e.g., Latin America, Africa, Southeast Asia). This focus can be achieved, for example, by a term paper or major project in the course, or by supplementary readings. These courses must be pre-approved by the coordinator of the third world studies major.
  2. Integrative, culminating experience in the student’s senior year. This course must be chosen in consultation with the coordinator of the Third World Studies major. It can often be the Senior Seminar of the student’s other major, provided it allows for a third-world focus.
