4000-level seminars, 2021-22 – 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.

As vaccinations continue to roll out across Canada, Carleton is planning for a safe and gradual return to campus in Fall 2021. Plans include small and medium courses (under 60 students) being offered in person (on campus) and larger courses being offered online, to allow for maximum flexibility for students. We are also expecting an even more significant return to in-person courses in Winter 2022. These plans are, of course, subject to government regulations and public health guidelines.

Course delivery methods and scheduled day/times (where applicable) will be available in Carleton Central. Please check Carleton Central regularly for any changes.

NEW for on campus classes – we have new room maximums for all the spaces on campus based on the Covid-19 social distancing rules. This means we cannot exceed the class maximums for on campus classes.

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

Fall 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 course 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 courses 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 course where the instructor and students share information, ideas, and learning experiences in a virtual course space. Asynchronous courses do not have live, scheduled meetings online. However, students are expected to remain up to date with the deadlines and due dates provided by the instructor. These courses require high-speed Internet access and a computer.
  • ONLINE BLENDED SECTION.
    An online course 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 courses require reliable high-speed Internet access and a computer (ideally with a webcam), and a headset with a microphone.
  • IN-PERSON SECTION WITH FLEXIBLE ONLINE/ON CAMPUS ATTENDANCE (HYFLEX).
    In the Hybrid-flexible (HyFlex) model, a single section is offered simultaneously to both on campus and students studying online by the same instructor. Students may choose how they will attend each class, either in-person on campus or online via Zoom. Students attending online may actively participate in the course. Instructors may choose to record their course, but this is solely at their discretion. Note: online and on campus students are part of the same section. Max enrollment of the section is limited by the room capacity.
  • IN-PERSON SECTION WITH ALTERNATIVES FOR ONLINE STUDENTS.
    In-person section; however, students who are studying online are welcome to register. Special arrangements will be made for students who are unable to come to campus, including recorded classes, online in-term assessments, etc.
  • IN-PERSON SECTION. DEPARTMENTAL PERMISSION REQUIRED FOR ONLINE STUDENTS.
    In-person section. Students who are studying online should contact the department and obtain permission to register.
  • IN-PERSON SECTION. NOT SUITABLE FOR ONLINE STUDENTS.
    In-person section only; students who are studying online should not register.
