Courses offered under this heading examine focused topics in Canadian History. These courses explore historical issues, events, or trends of importance in Canadian history. The courses are designed to provide a basic understanding of the historical narrative from multiple perspectives, to explore how and why such narratives have been constructed the way they have been, and—through such explorations—to introduce students to ‘thinking historically’. Lectures will explore historical narratives, their genesis, and the sources used to produce such narratives. Seminars will dig deeper into the tools and methodologies used by historians, provide instruction and practice in critical thinking and clear expression.
Attention: A maximum of nine credit units of 100-level HIST may be taken for credit. Only six of these credit units may count toward a History major or minor. The remaining three credit units will count as a junior elective in Requirement 5.
Note: Students may not take this course more than once for credit, even if the specific topic is different.
