Future Course Offerings

KPU History endeavours to offer each upper-level course at least once, during a two-year period (including Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters), faculty resources permitting. See below for information on courses available by Guided Study.

Availability of History Courses: 

Courses at the 1000 and 2000 level are offered in a regular rotation whenever possible. Courses with high demand, such as Canadian and World History are ordinarily offered on each campus (Surrey, Richmond, and Langley). Remember that a broad grounding in lower-level history is often more appropriate than a geographically defined focus. If you complete a broad range of introductory courses you will be much better prepared to complete our upper-level courses successfully. Upper-level courses are usually offered on the Surrey Campus, but we endeavour to offer 2-3 upper-level courses in Richmond each year. 

Course Plan Fall 2021 - Summer 2022:

Please note that these courses are subject to change. The registration guide and timetable will confirm our course offerings and the mode/location of delivery.

Guided Study

Since History is a relatively small department, the number of courses offered in a given academic semester may be limited. However, courses may also be offered as guided study courses, in a one-on-one or small group format. In order to complete a course by guided study you must follow the steps outlined below:

1. Make an appointment with one of the Arts Advisors (using the Advisor Connect system) who will guide you through the completion of the guided study paperwork and ensure that you meet the following criteria:

  • you must have successfully completed or received transfer credit for a minimum of twelve (12) semester credit hours at Kwantlen
  • you must have achieved a minimum CGPA of 3.00 
  • your enrollment in a guided study must not result in exceeding the normal academic workload for your student's program
  • you must be currently enrolled in at least one (1) other courses at Kwantlen (SFAREGS banner report)

2. With the assistance of the Arts Advisor, contact the faculty member(s) who ordinarily teaches the course and ascertain whether that faculty member is willing to teach the course by guided study. This decision rests solely with the faculty member.
 

3. The Dean's Office will issue the final approval for the guided study course. This can take up to six weeks during busy periods of the semester, so please ensure that your paperwork is completed at least 2 months before the planned start date of the course.
