BA Honours in History

60 credits

The Honours Program in History, which students enter either through direct-entry Honours or after their first 30 credits at Concordia, is intended for students with high standing. It is an excellent preparation for graduate studies in History or other advanced degree programs such as law, as well as other careers involving research and writing skills in journalism, filmmaking, government, museology and archival studies.

A new curriculum that comes into effect in the Fall 2022 term will include for all History program students the introductory HIST 200, a First Year Seminar that takes a “deep dive” into a historical subject. These small classes, each taught by one of the department’s professors, both explore the focused topic of the course and introduce students to historical skills: how historians make arguments, how they use historical evidence and other scholars’ writing, and how they communicate their ideas. There are several sections of HIST 200 offered in each of the Fall and Winter term, each with a different topic.

There are three options in the Honours program:


Please consult the Undergraduate Calendar for more information.

If your year of entry is earlier than Fall 2015, please contact the department.
