We cover a great range of eras and texts. Two Dartmouth quarters allow barely enough time. Hence the sequence.
No, you may simply complete Humanities 1 in the fall and receive credit for Writing 5 (Note: If you start off by taking Writing 5 in the fall term and then decide you would like to apply for Humanities 2 in the winter term, you may do so if there are spaces available).
What do I need to know about the First-Year Writing Requirement?
Humanities 1 and 2 fulfill the First-Year Writing requirement; Humanities 1 replaces Writing 5 and Humanities 2 replaces a First-Year Seminar.
Humanities 2 fulfills the Literature Distributive, as well as the Western category of the World Culture Requirement (Humanities 1, being equivalent to Writing 5, carries no additional distributives).
Applications are due by 4:00PM on August 1, 2016. Apply at http://www.dartmouth.edu/~hums1-2/forms/appform.html.
The first class of Humanities 1 will meet on Monday, September 12, 2016. Humanities 1 is scheduled at the 12 hour.
Fall, 2016: Paul Carranza (Spanish & Portuguese), Jane Carroll (Art History), Michelle Clarke (Government), Dennis Washburn (Asian Studies).
Winter 2017: Ellis Shookman (German Studies), Dennis Washburn (Asian Studies), Jane Carroll (Art History).
