Year 2-4 Courses

 

In their second to fourth years students may take all their courses in history, or they may combine some history courses with courses from the departments and programmes in the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Social Sciences. Different modes of learning are reflected in the structuring of the History curriculum into 'Survey' and 'Seminar' courses.
