The courses listed here may be used to satisfy the coursework requirement for the REEES BA and MA degrees. Please note special circumstances which apply to certain courses. REEE area studies courses receiving full credit are indicated in bold. For courses with less than 100% REEES content: to receive partial credit, students must submit a copy of the course syllabus to the REEEC director; to receive full credit, students must submit the course syllabus and write a REEES-related paper.
