There are still places remaining in several History courses for the upcoming 2017-2018 academic year including our popular HIST 4302A: Making Documentary History course where students produce a short narrative historical documentary that will be screened publicly.

The choice of documentary subject is made by students of Hist 4302, working collaboratively in groups of 3 and 4.

  • Interested in the subject of social dislocation–– have a look at No Road Home (2015).
  • More keen on a story about immigration to Canada –– watch I Did It All for You (2016)
  • Perhaps war is a subject you’re keen to explore — Echoes of War (2010) is a fine example of what students have done in this class.
  • Prefer a biographical piece, let’s say as an example, about a little known artist — watch Stolen Moments (2017).

There are no term papers in History 4302.  The research leads directly into the production of the documentary.

Special Students who wish to register should contact the Undergraduate Administrator at to discuss any concerns regarding prerequisites or equivalencies.
