4000-level seminars, 2020-21 – 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.
Following precautions for Covid-19, all courses are being offered online. Scheduled times (where applicable) will be available in Carleton Central. Please check Carleton Central regularly for any changes.
Please contact the Undergraduate Administrator, Tanya Schwartz, if you require assistance.
