The History Department website lists a number of history courses offered by other departments, such as East Asian Studies, Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations, Classics and St. Michael’s College which can be taken for program credit.

Typically these courses are taught by faculty members who are trained as historians but whose primary appointment is in another department; they may include subjects not covered by HIS offerings.

These are considered equivalent to HIS courses for the purpose of all program requirements except the 100-level requirement, and there is no limit on the number of these courses that can be included in a student’s program.

* indicates courses no longer offered by the department.
