4000-level seminars, 2017-18

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.

Scheduled times will be available at the end of May in Carleton Central. Please check Carleton Central for any changes. Classroom locations will be posted by September 1.

The Department of History is offering multiple sections of HIST 4915: Topics in History. Students who plan to register in more than one section must fill out an override request through Carleton Central for each additional section as the registration system automatically prevents registering in more than one section in the same semester. Please contact the Undergraduate Administrator, Tanya Schwartz, if you require assistance.
