Graduate Students are expected to take three courses a semester.  This calendar is a four-year calendar to help part and full-time students plan their classes.  In addition to your required courses, you may take additional colloquia and electives (public history or otherwise).  These will be listed as 5000/6000 courses and elective topics may vary year to year.
