Registration Information for Upper Year History Students

If you are a History Major or Medial, you will need to make sure that you select your upper year seminars (HIST 333-499) from those that still have room in them. Many of you have taken part in Advance Course Selection and have been enrolled in 1 or 2 upper year seminars - you can also fill the rest of your units needed to complete your degree with 200 level lecture courses.

If you are a History Minor, you are not eligible to take upper year seminars but there are many great 200 level courses for you to choose from. If you’d like to discuss switching to a Medial or Major, please email me at to discuss your options.

While registering for your courses on SOLUS, you will find that under “Days and Times” a time span of 12:00AM—12:00AM is indicated. Again, under “Room” the notation TBA is specified. This might be confusing to you, but all this means is that the class will meet online and there is no set time for live lectures. Your course professors and seminar instructors will hold meetings and office hours, and they will communicate these arrangements at the beginning of the course. These meetings will be scheduled after consulting with you.

As you enter your upper years here at Queen’s, we recommend you check out your Academic Advisement Report (AAR) to keep on track for completing your degree. Your Academic Advisement Report (AAR) helps you determine how many units you need to take and what course you might need for your plan. It is a handy tool that overviews what you have satisfied so far with respect to your degree plan requirements. You can learn more about it here.

As a History Major, Medial or Minor, you must take 6.0 units of Canadian content as part of your degree requirements. If you have not already satisfied this requirement, you can check out which courses qualify for Canadian content on our website.
