Thematic Streams

 

Although thematic streams are not an official program requirement, you may find it enriching to follow a particular theme across different time periods or geographical divisions.

The following thematic streams indicate a few well-defined
areas, but other thematic possibilities exist as well, such as ‘Race’ and Ethnic Relations, or Popular and Material Culture. For further information, consult the Associate Chair, Undergraduate.
