Sign-In Information for Class of 2016
Declare your concentration as soon as Registrar's site opens to do so. There is no need to wait until after your appointment to declare your concentration.
If you have decided to concentrate in History, declare your concentration on the Registrar's site April 14-April 22 and make an appointment to meet with our Departmental Representative, Prof. Jack Tannous. Schedule an appointment at https://wass.princeton.edu/pages/viewcalendar.page.php?makeapp=1&cal_id=2425 . Appointments are April 15, 17, 21 and 22. Your appointment will take place in 133 Dickinson Hall.
Bring to your appointment 2 copies of your SCORE worksheet and a copy of your internal transcript. Prof. Tannous will review the courses you have taken to see which serve as prerequisites. All History juniors must take HIS 400 Jr Seminar fall 2014. View descriptions of the seminar choices HERE.
NOTE: 4/22/2014 A new seminar choice S09 History of Ecology and Environmentalism with Professor Erika Milam Tu 1:30-4:20 has just been added.
DESCRIPTION: The word 'ecology' evokes the scientific discipline that studies the interactions between and among organisms and their environments, and also resonates with the environmental movement of the sixties, green politics, and conservation. This course explores the historical development of ecology as a professional science, before turning to the political and social ramifications of ecological ideas. Throughout the course, we will situate the history of ecological ideas in their cultural, political, and social context.
You won't be able to enroll in HIS 400 until you have declared your concentration as History. The seminar sizes are limited.
If you have any questions or if you need to schedule an appointment outside of the established times, feel free to contact History's Undergraduate Administrator, Etta Recke (firstname.lastname@example.org).
