Rant for the Day  
Ok, follow the bouncing ball:

I have to take History II - 2112 (I am presently taking History I - 2111) which takes us from the Reconstruction through to the present. This is fine, I am looking forward to taking the class. No problem.

On a lark, I checked the registration for classes (I've already registered three weeks ago). Actually, I am trying to replace a class since one is not really a great fit for me and my family's schedule.

So, I find that a (required) class on Medieval Life Religion/Thought is available at a time far better for me.

Oh, but I have to take the History II class first because it is the sequence.

Um, why? What on earth does anything that happened 700 years after have to do with learning about the Medieval time? (Ok, maybe I may have a head start on this, but it's the logic).

Besides, does it really count as history if i lived through 1/3 of the period?

Rant off. Thank you

You may be able to get them to let you take the Medieval and the History II during the same semester, but probably not before you've taken it (unless you are really tight with faculty in that department already, in which case if the college allows for such a thing they may be willing to do an override so you can take it out of sequence). It's worth a query/visit to the department/faculty. You have nothing to lose by asking.

Yeah, I will be talking to someone...once I figure out with whom to discuss this. Hey, the school (Georgia Gwinnett College) was only accredited in July, so my history teaching degree is a bit unsettled. Hey! At least I (now) have the list of classes required for graduation. It was the wonderful opportunity of this class facing me that jumped out. I want a class that is soul satisfying...this semester it is Art Appreciation & History.

Gotta love a 4-year, accredited school that is less than 10 minutes from the house.
