4000-level seminars, 2024-25 – more details to be added as they become available

4000-level seminars are primarily for Honours students in History who are at the fourth-year level. If you are a fourth-year Honours student in a program other than History and wish to take a 4000-level History seminar, please submit an override request through Carleton Central. Override requests will be reviewed by the instructor who may provide permission to register for individual students outside of History. The department recommends that students have completed a lower-level course in the field(s) of the seminar(s) they intend to take.  Some instructors regard such preparation as very important; others do not. If you have not taken a course that would provide preparation for a particular seminar, you should always speak with the instructor first.

Course delivery methods and scheduled day/times (where applicable) will be available in Carleton Central. Please check Carleton Central regularly for any changes. (These plans are, of course, subject to government regulations and public health guidelines.)

Please contact the Undergraduate Administrator, Tanya Schwartz, if you require assistance.

Course Delivery Types

The following course delivery type will appear in the “Section Information” listing in Carleton Central:

  • ONLINE SYNCHRONOUS SECTION: A real-time, online section where the instructor and students meet via web conferencing tools, at scheduled days and times. Instructors and students share information, ideas and learning experiences in a virtual course environment. Participation in synchronous sections requires students to have reliable, high-speed internet access, a computer (ideally with a webcam), and a headset with a microphone.
  • ONLINE ASYNCHRONOUS SECTION: An online section where the instructor and students share information, ideas, and learning experiences in a virtual course space. Asynchronous sections do not have live, scheduled meetings online or fixed-time assessments. However, students are expected to remain up to date with the deadlines and due dates provided by the instructor. These sections require high-speed Internet access and a computer.
  • ONLINE COMBINED SYNCHRONOUS/ASYNCHRONOUS: An online section where there is a mixture of synchronous meetings and asynchronous activities. This means students need to be prepared to meet some of the time online via web conferencing tools at scheduled days and times. The specific dates will be communicated by the instructor in the course outline. The asynchronous activities are intended to provide flexibility to students when the class is not meeting synchronously. Students are expected to remain up to date with the deadlines and due dates provided by the instructor. These sections require reliable high-speed Internet access and a computer (ideally with a webcam), and a headset with a microphone.
  • IN-PERSON SECTION. NOT SUITABLE FOR ONLINE STUDENTS: In-person section; online students should not register.
  • IN-PERSON SECTION WITH ONLINE COMPONENTS (MIX OF ON CAMPUS AND ONLINE): In-person section where there is a mixture of in-person and online activities. This means students need to be prepared to meet on campus at the scheduled time. Information about online activities will be communicated by the instructor in the course outline. The section is not suitable for online students due to in-person on campus activities. These sections require reliable high-speed Internet access and a computer (ideally with a webcam), and a headset with a microphone.
