Admissions

College of Lake County: Equivalency Guides for Humanities

American Studies

College of Lake County Lake Forest College
HUM 221: American Decades AMER 110: Introduction to American Studies

All other College of Lake County 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 CLC.
    • Many other courses at CLC may apply to the American Studies major or minor. It is generally our practice to defer to the home department to decide whether a CLC 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 CLC course “HST 221: U.S. History to 1876” has been approved by the History department as an equivalent to HIST 200: Foundations of the American Republic. HIST 200 is cross-listed as AMER 210, and therefore applies 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 CLC may be used toward a Lake Forest College American Studies major. A maximum of three (3) courses from CLC 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.
  • CLC credits may not be used to fulfill the AMER 200 requirement (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 College of Lake County may be used toward a Lake Forest College History major. A maximum of three (3) courses from College of Lake County may be used toward a Lake Forest College History minor.

Philosophy

College of Lake County Lake Forest College
PHI 121 Introduction to Philosophy PHIL 110-118, depending on the particular syllabus
PHI 125 Introduction to Ethics PHIL 118: Why Philosophy Matters
PHI 122 Logic PHIL 156: Logic and Styles of Argument
PHI 128 Introduction to Social and Political Philosphy PHIL 117: Political Philosophy
PHI 126 World Religions Will not count toward philosophy major
PHI 129 Philosophy of Gender and Sexuality PHIL 200: Philosophy and Gender
PHI 221 Asian Philosophy Either PHIL 114 or PHIL 275 or PHIL 285, depending on the particular syllabus
PHI 123 Philosophy of Religion PHIL 223: Does God Exist?
Important Notes
  • Of the philosophy courses offered at CLC, only the PHI 122: 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 CLC 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.
