2020 Fall Term Honors Course Substitutions

Given the interdisciplinary nature of many honors college courses, there are a few that I will approve to fulfill requirements in the P&P major, even though they are not offered through the PS, PHIL/HPS, or ECON departments. Listed below are the substitutions you can make for the 2020 Fall Term (2211).

This list is accurate as of March 14, 2020; some of these courses may have been canceled since that date and no longer appear in PeopleSoft.

BIOETH 1660 – Philosophy of Medicine
Can be used to fulfill a course in the "philosophy" component

BIOETH 1698 – Special Topics in Bioethics
Can be used to fulfill a course in the "philosophy" component

BUSENV 1706 – Market Manipulations
Can be used to fulfill a course in the "political science" component

ENGWRT 1377 – Media Literacy
Can be used to fulfill a course in the "political science" component

HIST 1083 – History of Sports
Can be used to fulfill a course in the "political science" component

HIST 1640 – America Childhoods
Can be used to fulfill a course in the "political science" component

HIST 1725 – Disease and Health in Modern Africa
Can be used to fulfill a course in the "philosophy" or the "economics" component

Additionally, here are two honors courses offered through the Law School:

LAW 2910 – How Law Began
Can be used to fulfill the P&P major capstone requirement – OR -- Can be used to fulfill a course in the "political science" OR "philosophy" component

LAW 2911 – First Amendment
Can be used to fulfill the P&P major capstone requirement – OR -- Can be used to fulfill a course in the "political science" component

In order to access information about LAW courses in PeopleSoft, do the following on the Class Search page:

In the Subject field, type LAW
Change the Course Career pull-down menu from Undergraduate to Graduate

Finally, EVERY student will need a permission number from the Law School to enroll in the LAW courses. Here's the procedure to request a permission number:

Send an email to lawreg@pitt.edu and include the following in your email:

1. State that you are an undergraduate student.
2. Give the specific course number (e.g., LAW 2910).
3. Provide your PeopleSoft ID number.

The Law School will email the permission number to you in return.

If there's a course not listed here (it doesn't have to be offered through the honors college, either) that you wish to have considered as a substitution within the P&P major, please contact David Hornyak (remember, the P&P major is thematic by nature).
