The Department offers three kinds of undergraduate programs: Honours, Major concentration and Minor Concentration.
In each program, a specified number of credits may be selected from one of the following FOUR areas:
 The Americas [A]
 Europe [E]
 Asia/ Africa/ Middle East [AAME]
 Global/ thematic [G/T]
Each student's program is worked out with a History Program Adviser to suit the student's specific needs within the general framework of the program. Advising meetings are on a drop-in basis or by appointment. For advising office hours, check under each program listed in the menu on the left.
Students should complete a "History Program Advising/Audit" form for two purposes:
1. Program Advising - if you would like to meet with a History Program Adviser for advising, please fill in the courses you've taken to date on the form and bring it with you when you meet with the adviser. The form should be submitted to the Student Affairs Advisor in Leacock 637 for future advising meetings with your program adviser and for graduation recommendation (see #2). NOTE: students who currently have a file (with their advising/audit form) with the Student Affairs Adviser in Leacock 637 should pick this up before an advisng meeting.
2. Graduation Recommendation - if you would like confirmation in your second-to-last or last term that you are on track to graduate, please complete the form and meet with a History Program Adviser before the end of course add/drop in your last term (or sooner if you won't be changing your course choices) to obtain your program adviser's signature indicating that you are on track and will be recommended for graduation for the history component of your degree. You should then drop the completed and signed form off with the Student Affairs Advisor in Leacock 637.

NOTE: History Department Policy on AP (Advanced Placement) or IB (International Baccalaureate) courses: Students MAY NOT count AP or IB credits toward History Program credits. AP or IB credits may be considered as prerequisites of upper level courses but we suggest students discuss whether they have obtained the neccessary background from their AP or IB courses with the Professor of an upper-level course.
