Dickinson Hall ArchStudents are required to take and pass at least two departmental courses before they enter the department. At least one of these two courses must come from the list of courses designated as prerequisites.

Students who have not fulfilled the 200-level prerequisite must take one of the appropriate courses in the fall of their junior year. Humanities 216-217 or 218-219 may be used as a 200-level prerequisite but cannot be counted as one of the ten departmental requirements. CLA216, CLA 217, CLA 218, and CLA 219 do not satisfy the 200-level prerequisite but will count as departmental courses.

Students who wish to enter the department but who have not taken two departmental courses before their junior year should consult with the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
