Dual Enrollment

In the shifting landscape of higher education, departments of history would do well to pay attention to proliferating "dual enrollment" courses, in which high school students simultaneously earn high school and college credit. Because they cost less than a college course, they are popular with high school teachers, parents, and state legislatures. But what are the ramifications for university history departments faced with declining enrollments? Are DE courses really equivalent to introductory history courses? In this Perspectives forum, contributors attempt to answer these questions. Cover illustration: Zoila Torres.
