2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog


British and Colonial/Post-Colonial Studies Minor

Requirements

The minor is 18 hours and requires completion of two core courses, a disciplinary concentration consisting of three courses, and one elective course. The designated core courses draw from a variety of disciplines and are selected to provide students with:

  • Foundational knowledge about Great Britain, its history and culture, and the processes of change over time.
  • An introduction to the critical issues of Colonial/Post-Colonial studies (see list below).

The disciplinary concentration allows students to develop an area of specialization—arts and humanities or natural and social sciences—within the minor. For further information, contact the program director.

Restrictions

Courses must draw from at least three different departments with no more than nine hours completed in one department. No more than six hours can be completed at the 10000/20000 level. A maximum of 12 hours completed through the TCU in London Program or any other TCU Study Abroad Program can count toward the minor, but no more than six of those 12 hours can be London Internship hours. The program director must approve the application of any transfer credit to the minor requirements.
