George Washington University removes U.S. history from required courses — for history majors

George Washington University in Washington, D.C., has apparently decided that giving students more “flexibility” means freeing them from taking required courses in U.S. History — even if they’re history majors.


According to The College Fix, the new requirements allow for students to take an optional course in previously required courses, or a high score on a placement test to opt out of the requirement, but the mandate to take U.S. history is no longer in effect. From College Fix:


The department eliminated requirements in U.S., North American and European history, as well as the foreign language requirement. Thus, it is possible that a student can major in history at GWU without taking a survey course on United States history.


The history department at GWU has been facing declining interest and enrollment. As a result, they’ve decided that an answer to that problem, and an effective way to recruit new students, is to “to better reflect a globalizing world,” according to comments made by George Washington University faculty members to the student newspaper, The Hatchet.



I cannot tell a lie-said, who?
