What is required?
All Carthage students must successfully complete two Western Heritage seminar courses:
- COR 1100 Western Heritage I (4 credits)
- COR 1110 Western Heritage II (4 credits)
Western Heritage I should be taken during the fall term of freshman year. Western Heritage II should be taken during the spring term of freshman year.
The year-long seminar is taught collaboratively by faculty from academic departments across disciplines. Students must successfully complete the first Western Heritage seminar before advancing to the second seminar.
Because of the seminar nature of Western Heritage, no student may take the course as an independent study. Consistent attendance and participation are required of all students in Western Heritage. Students who fail the first Western Heritage seminar may not advance to the second seminar in the sequence.
