History Programs

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:

[1] The Americas  [A]
[2] Europe  [E]
[3] Asia/ Africa/ Middle East  [AAME]
[4] 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. 
Advisers drop-in office hours.

Students should complete a "History Program Advising/Audit" form for two purposes: 

1.  Program Advising - students should fill in an advising/audit form for the program you are following with courses you've taken to date and bring the form with you when you meet with a History Program Adviser.  Advisers drop-in office hours.

2.  Graduation Recommendation - for confirmation that you are on track to graduate, please update your advising/audit form and bring with you when you meet with a History Program Adviser before the end of course add/drop in your second to last term (or sooner if you won't be changing your course choices) to obtain a Program Adviser's signature indicating that you are on track to be recommended for graduation for the history component of your degree (pending final grades). 
Advisers drop-in office hours
The signed form should be brought to Diana Sooklall in the Main office, Leacock 712.

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.
