The following question is frequently asked about the History major and related subjects:
Q: Does credit earned on the European Studies program count toward the Major?
A: Yes, the Western Europe option of European Studies brings credit for TWO three-hour courses. For students majoring in European History, these count toward the major and the concentration; for students with other concentrations they count in the major but outside the concentration.
The Classical option of ES brings credit for ONE three-hour course in European history–the same principles apply as above.
From D-Day to Berlin: World War II Sites in England, France, Germany
The summer program "From D-Day to Berlin: World War II Sites in England, France, Germany" offers Sewanee students an opportunity to visit many of the most important battlefields, monuments, museums, and cultural sites associated with the second world war in Western Europe. During this three week study-excursion, students will be able to view the rooms where Churchill met his cabinet and followed the progression of the war, the headquarters office where Eisenhower and his staff planned the D-Day invasion, the D-Day beaches themselves as well as the American cemetery that overlooks Omaha Beach, the hotel that served as German headquarters in Paris as well as plaques to resistance fighters that still adorn bullet-ridden buildings in the heart of the city, numerous places in Munich where the Nazi movement rose from insignificance to attempted world domination, the horrors of Dachau concentration camp, the Nuremberg courthouse where Nazi criminals were put on trial after the war, and finally the city of Berlin with its many reminders of both the world war and the cold war.
The trip is led by Professor Harold Goldberg, who has written two books on World War II and has visited all of these sites extensively.
The dates for the Summer Program are May 17 through June 6. In the three week interim, students will have visited London, Portsmouth, Normandy, Paris, Munich, Nuremberg, and Berlin. For additional details, contact Professor Goldberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or in his office: 931-598-1566.
