For students who entered a History program as of 2019-2020, the Department has defined two course lists that define areas of study. Course Lists A and B apply to Level II-III courses.

Historical experiences are vast and varied across time periods, nations and identity groups. The Department of History recommends that students take courses that reflect the diverse experiences of different peoples in various time periods and geographical locations. As part of the Truth and Reconciliation process in Canada, the department also strongly recommends that students take courses that focus in whole or in part on the experiences of Indigenous peoples.

Students should consult the Program Notes for their specific program to determine the requirements regarding these course lists:

Course List A: Canada

Course List B: Caribbean, Latin America, Asia, Africa, Middle East, Brazil, Eur-Asia

For students in program prior to 2019-2020, the Department has defined six course lists that define areas of study. Course Lists 1 to 4 apply to Level II courses, and Course Lists 5 and 6 apply to Level III courses. Students should consult the Program Notes for their specific program to determine the requirements regarding these course lists:

Course List 1: Europe (Including Britain)

Course List 2: Asia, Africa, Middle East

Course List 3: The Americas

Course List 4: Global History

Course List 6: Advanced Courses in Asia, Africa, Middle East and Global History
