The History Honours Program involves intensive advanced study combining coursework with a research project, or dissertation, in which the student engages in independent research on an approved topic under the supervision of a member of academic staff.
A regular general Seminar involves all students undertaking honours and provides a forum to support students as they progress through their dissertation work. This seminar is run by the School Honours Coordinator, whose specific responsibility is to guide honours students through the year from their initial application to the submission of their dissertation.
Honours in History can be combined with other programs in our School and with other disciplines within the Faculty of Arts with permission & approval from the heads of all Departments/Programs. Arrangements for combined honours should be discussed with the Honours Coordinator.
