The choice of courses will depend on your aims in entering the program.

If you see yourself as likely to enter the Masters Program in History at a later stage, please consult over your choice of courses with a member of the History Department faculty. You may also want to look at the requirements of the Preparatory Year for the different tracks of the Master Program (See PROGRAM FOR PREPARATORY YEAR FOR MASTER OF ARTS AND FOR DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY PROGRAMS). It is possible, through the Minor Program, to dispense with the need for a separate Preparatory Year for the Masters Program. However, in such a case, there may still be the need to take, during the First Year of the Masters Program, a couple of additional courses that would normally be in the Preparatory Year.

If your aims in entering the Minor Program are simply to study some history for your broader education, with no particular objective of studying history at the graduate level, then you may take advantage of a much freer choice of courses, with up to three electives at the Graduate level (5xx or higher). It might be best, however, to start with some of the 4xx level courses listed above. Again, feel free to consult a member of the History Department faculty.
