What? This from the Free Beacon:

Several elite colleges do not require students pursuing a history degree to take U.S. history courses, according to a new American Council of Trustees and Alumni report.

Only 23 of the 76 institutions ranked as “the best” by U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 rankings mandate that history majors take at least one course in U.S. history, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The chairman of the history department at Carleton College, a private liberal arts school in Minnesota, said that history majors are not required to take a single U.S. history course because the university is “committed to the idea that all histories are important and valuable in the cultivation of a robust civic consciousness.”
