Honours

Program requirements

Please note that, in addition to the program requirements, students must meet the Requirements common to all Bachelor's degrees in the Faculty of Humanities.

In the Honours Program, students have the opportunity to study history more intensively and independently. The Program should be especially useful for students contemplating graduate work in history or careers in teaching, journalism, law, library science or government service.

Admission

Admission to the Program normally requires a minimum overall GPA of 6.0 as well as a minimum of 6.0 in 6 units of History courses, of which at least 3 units should be at the 100 or 200 level. Units in advanced courses meeting this minimum requirement are not counted towards the 18 units of upper-level credits in History required by the Program.

Application for admission to the Honours Program can be made as early as the spring of second year. Applications as late as the summer after third year will also be considered.

Honours candidates are required to have their program of courses approved by the Honours Adviser.

Breadth requirements

To ensure sufficient breadth in their programs of study, Honours students are required to take:

at least one 1.5-unit course at any level which meets the Early History breadth requirement;
at least one 1.5-unit course at any level which meets the Geographical breadth requirement by having a focus outside of Britain, Europe, or North America.
at least one 1.5-unit course at any level with a focus within Britain, Europe, or North America.

For a list of eligible courses in each breadth requirement, see below.

Language requirement

Students are required to demonstrate a reading knowledge of a language other than English by passing, with a minimum grade of C in each course, 3.0 units of language courses at the 200-level or higher (FRAN 180 is also acceptable), or by passing a translation examination administered by the Department of History.

Substitutions

Honours students may take a maximum of 3.0 units from GRS 314, 315, 331, 332, 333, 335, 336, 337, 341, 342, 344, 348, 349, 350, 376, 381, 442, 443, 461, 480A, 480C.

Program Notes

An Honours degree requires a graduating GPA of at least 5.0 and a GPA of at least 5.0 in Honours courses (HSTR 496, 497 if taken, 499). Candidates whose performance is unsatisfactory may be required to transfer from the Honours Program to the Major Program. Continuation in the fourth year of the Program is conditional upon satisfactory performance in the third year.

The Honours Seminar (HSTR 496) explores historical theory and methods, and the Honours Thesis (HSTR 499) is a research project normally based on primary sources. HSTR 499 includes an oral examination conducted by a committee comprising the faculty supervisor of the paper and a second reader, as well as the departmental Honours Adviser (or the adviser’s representative) acting as chair. Together these are designed to expand understanding of both the content and the craft of history. Students in the Program may also choose to write a Third-Year Honours Essay (HSTR 497).

Course structure

Introductory courses are at the 100 and 200 levels. The 100-level courses are global and thematic histories. The 200-level courses are surveys of national and regional histories.

Advanced courses are at the 300 and 400 level. The 300-level courses are lectures or lectures/discussion combinations. The 400-level courses are discussion seminars.

Students should complete introductory courses in a given area before taking advanced courses in the same area. History courses require substantial written and reading assignments.
