Admissions

College of DuPage: Equivalency Guides for Humanities

American Studies

College of DuPage Lake Forest College

All other College of DuPage courses (completed with a grade of B- or better).

100 or 200-level credit pending the approval of the chairperson of American Studies
Important Notes
  • The American Studies program only offers two courses on its own (AMER 110: Introduction to American Studies and AMER 200: Topics in American Studies) that are not cross-listed with other departments’ courses. The remaining courses that flesh out a student’s curriculum reside in other departments and are cross-listed with American Studies.
     
    • AMER 110: Introduction to American Studies is only offered every other academic year.
    • AMER 200: Topics in American Studies is a team-taught course offered annually in the spring, and there is no transferable equivalent at College of DuPage.
    • Many other courses at College of DuPage may apply to the American Studies major or minor. It is generally our practice to defer to the home department to decide whether a College of DuPage course has an equivalent. If the equivalent course is cross-listed with American Studies, then there is no objection to counting it toward the major or minor. For example, the College of DuPage course “HISTO 1130: History of the United States to 1865” if approved by the History department as an equivalent to HIST 200: Foundations of the American Republic, would also be cross-listed as AMER 210, and therefore apply toward the American Studies major or minor.
    • If there is no equivalent course at Lake Forest College, but the student feels as though the course is compatible with American Studies, then the student should appeal to the chairperson of American Studies who will make the final determination.
  • A maximum of four (4) courses from College of DuPage may be used toward a Lake Forest College American Studies major. A maximum of three (3) courses from College of DuPage may be used toward a Lake Forest College American Studies minor. Requests for exceptions will be considered by the chairperson on a case-by-case basis.
  • College of DuPage credits may not be used to fulfill the AMER 110 or AMER 200 requirements (see above), or to transfer in as any course at the 300-level or above, including the Senior Seminar requirement (AMER 485).

Important Notes
  • A maximum of four (4) courses from the College of DuPage may be used toward a Lake Forest College History major. A maximum of three (3) courses from the College of DuPage may be used toward a Lake Forest College History minor.
  • The College of DuPage credits may not be used to fulfill 300-level Lake Forest College courses (including History 300), nor may they be used to fulfill the Senior Studies Requirement.

Should a student wish to have this requirement waived because of courses taken at the College of DuPage appeals will be considered by the chair, but students should be aware that the bar for such appeals is high. Successful appeals will demonstrate that 1. methodological skills taught in 110 have been mastered; 2. a non-western History course has been (or will be) taken.

Important Notes
  • The Lake Forest College Philosophy major requires three courses in the history of philosophy, of five offered. We can make some exceptions to this, but in general, we will not accept more than two history-of-philosophy courses from College of DuPage toward that requirement.
  • In most cases, if a CDC student were to (hypothetically) take all the regular philosophy offerings at CDC, and PHILO 210 and 211 were accepted as two of Lake Forest’s 290, 291, 292, 320, or 355, she would still need to take one history-of-philosophy course, PHIL 325: Major Ethical Theories, PHIL 305: Comparative Philosophy: East-West, and a senior capstone (either a seminar, a research project, or a thesis).
