History

New Course(s)
HIST 3500. Mixed-Race America. This course traces the history of mixed-race and mixed-heritage people in the US. Emphasizing how mixed-race people are racialized in different ways throughout time, this course will focus on mixture in the historical contexts of indigeneity, colonialism, slavery and freedom, imperialism, occupation, immigration, war, and citizenship. Overall, this course seeks to complicate how we view race, to challenge the concept of racial belonging, to acknowledge the role of anti-black racism in histories of mixture, and to foster dialogue around the fluidity and permeability of race in US history. Prerequisite(s): 3 credits of HIST.

Political Science Accelerated “Pre-Law”, B.A.
  The Political Science Department offers an accelerated “pre-law” program for political science majors and other interested students. Students complete a three-year liberal arts education program at Xavier (108 hours). In their senior year, students enroll at an American Bar Association accredited law school. After successfully completing 12 hours at law school, the student receives a B.A. degree from Xavier. To participate in the program, a student must maintain a cumulative average of 3.0 and register with the Pre-Law Advisor throughout his/her three years at Xavier. The proposed course of study and transfer hours must be approved by the department. A student’s minor should be any subject which 1) develops analytical skills, 2) develops writing skills, and/or 3) relates to thestudent’s proposed law specialty. For example, another social science discipline, History, English, Philosophy, Business Administration, Mathematics, a physical science, foreign language, Computer Science, or Public Administration may be selected as a minor. The student should delay taking electives in the major to be eligible for the accelerated program. The program does not assure a student’s entry into law school. Admission to an accredited law school is the responsibility of the student. Several law schools in the United States allow admission to the exceptional student without an undergraduate degree.The student interested in Pre-Law should see the Pre-Law Advisor at his or her first Xavier registration.
