Courses with an asterisk appear in more than one category and may therefore count toward either of those categories. However, no one more may count for more than 3 credits toward the concentration. For example, avant-garde film may Count as a history or theory class in fulfilling the requirements for the concentration but can only count as 3 credits (rather than 6). Please note that not all courses are offered each term. To confirm a course's availability, students should consult the updated course catalogue for a given term.
