Notes

** Students will enroll in HIS-470 in their final semester before graduation and six weeks before the end of the term will submit a portfolio of relevant work completed, such as exams and papers, also to contain an assessment of the program. This assessment of the most important academic lessons learned and skills acquired during their course of study will be 1000 to 1500 words in length. The evaluation must also provide an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of the Social Sciences & History PEAK. The portfolio will be graded Pass/Fail.
