Honours History

Students wishing to enter this program must complete an application for admission to Level II on Mosaic in mid-march to be considered for admission.

Admission

Completion of any Level I program and a Cumulative Average of at least 5.0 including an average of at least 5.0 in six units of Level I History.

Notes:

  • All students registered in an Honours History program must take HISTORY 2HI3 in Level II and HISTORY 3HI3 in Level III as part of their degree requirements. The requirement to take HISTORY 2HI3 will be waived for students who completed HISTORY 1FF3 in Level I.
  • Students must complete HISTORY 2HI3 and HISTORY 3HI3 before enrolling in a Level IV History seminar.
  • When registering, it is recommended that students distribute their required History courses (see Requirements below) as follows:
    Level II: HISTORY 2HI3; 15 units from Course Lists 1 to 4
    Level III: HISTORY 3HI3; 15 units from Course Lists 5 and 6
    Level IV: 3 units from Course Lists 5 and 6, 9 units Level IV History
    (No Honours student may take more than 9 units of Level IV seminars.)
  • Students considering a career in teaching are advised to take HISTORY 2T03 and HISTORY 2TT3, as many schools of education require the equivalent of six units in a Canadian History survey course.
  • Students considering graduate work in History are strongly encouraged to include in their program a second language beyond the introductory level, as many graduate programs require proficiency in a second language.
