Admissions

Triton Community College: Equivalency Guides for Humanities

American Studies

Triton Community College Lake Forest College

All other Triton College 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 Triton College.
    • Many other courses at Triton College may apply to the American Studies major or minor. It is generally our practice to defer to the home department to decide whether a Triton College 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 Triton College course “HIS 151: History of the U.S. to 1877” 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 Triton College may be used toward a Lake Forest College American Studies major. A maximum of three (3) courses from Triton College 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.
  • Triton College 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

  • Triton College 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.
  •  All majors are expected to take History 110 at Lake Forest, including transfer students. Should a student wish to have this requirement waived because of courses taken at Triton College appeals will be considered by the chair, but students should be aware that the bar for such appeals is high.

Philosophy

Triton Community College Lake Forest College
PHL 101: Introduction to Philosophy PHIL 110-118 or
100-level elective, depending on syllabus
PHL 102: Logic 100-level elective
PHL 103: Ethics PHIL 118: Why Philosophy Matters
PHL 104: Social and Political Philosophy PHIL 117: Political Philosophy
PHL 105: World Religions Will not count toward philosophy major
PHL 106: Biomedical Ethics

PHIL 118: Why Philosophy Matters or
PHIL 205: Medical Ethics, depending on the particular syllabus

PHL 113: Environmental Ethics PHIL 210: Environmental Ethics
PHL 296: Special Topics in Philosophy PHIL 200-level elective or
a particular 200-level course offering, depending on topic
Important Notes
  • Of the philosophy courses offered at Triton, only the PHL 102: Logic will transfer as one of the required courses toward the Lake Forest College major. All others that count toward the major will count as electives. Thus, a hypothetical student who had taken all philosophy courses offered at Triton would still need to take at least six courses in philosophy to major in philosophy at Lake Forest College. We might waive requirements in special circumstances, or accept 296 as a required course, depending on the topic.
