History: What HIST course should I take?
The Department of History offers three first-year courses in History on the Queen’s main campus, and one at the Bader International Study Centre. Students may choose one of the following:
HIST 121/6.0 The Intellectual Origins of the Contemporary West
HIST 122/6.0 The Making of the Modern World
HIST 124/6.0 Canada in the World
HIST 125/6.0 The Evolution of Modern Europe (available to students at the Bader International Study Centre. Also available via distance education)
All four courses offer students an introduction to the study of history at the university level. Any one (but no more than one) of these courses should be taken by any student who intends to pursue a Plan in History. Note that HIST 124/6.0 will satisfy the Canadian History requirement of all History Plans, though you are free to take any Canadian History course to fulfill this requirement later on in your studies. HIST 121/6.0 or HIST 122/6.0 should be taken by a student who intends to pursue a Plan in Medieval Studies. Any one of these courses is a good elective choice for any student in Arts. If undecided, choose the HIST course that best suits your interests.
NOTE: All 6.0 unit courses are multi-term courses. These courses are offered across the Fall and Winter Terms. When students enrol in the "A" suffix course in the Fall Term, the "B" suffix will automatically be added to the Winter Term.Both halves of the course will be offered at the same time in the course timetable.
SECTIONED COURSE: This course is offered in more than one tutorial section. When you register in the course, you must choose the tutorial sections that best suit your timetable.
REGISTRATION RESTRICTION: Priority access to Arts students during the July 9th - 25th Enrolment period. This course will become available to all students during the Open Enrolment periods between June 25th and August 3rd and then again on September 5th, as space permits.
