The 5000-level courses should form the core of your program.  Not all of the Calendar’s courses are offered in a given year. For an up-to-date statement of courses offered in the current term, consult Current Seminars on this website. They may be supplemented by drawing on courses from the following sources:

  1. Where our graduate offerings do not satisfy important needs or passionate interests, you may take up to 1.0 credits (or 2 half courses) at the 4000 level.  These courses are all restricted enrolment seminars, open to Honours students in the final year of their program. Consult the Graduate Chair on the appropriateness of any course to your long-range ambitions, critical approach, need to fill gaps, or desire for a concentration in a particular period, nationality or genre. Carleton graduates may not repeat courses taken at the fourth year for graduate credit. For detailed descriptions on fourth-year courses, please consult the departmental website.
  2. An agreement between Carleton University and the University of Ottawa allows a graduate student registered at the Carleton University to take certain courses at University of Ottawa if approved by the student’s department. Departmental information and course listings, are available at the following site: Registration for courses taken in the context of joint programs with the University of Ottawa is done, through parallel codes, at the University where the student has been admitted and is pursuing his/her studies. Carleton students must obtain the Graduate Chair’s prior approval before registering at the University of Ottawa.
  3. You may take graduate-level courses in another department or discipline that complements or enriches your interests and plans, with the Graduate Supervisor’s prior approval.
  4. In rare circumstances the department may permit tutorial courses in areas not covered by the listed course offerings. Please contact the Graduate Supervisor for more information.
