PROCESS

  1. Student contacts the Chair of History once they have successfully completed the specified courses (see above)
  2. Chair (or designate) verifies with the Dean’s office whether all courses in the “stream” have been successfully completed
  3. Chair (or an individual in the Dean’s Office) prints out the certificate and has it signed by the signatories in the Dean’s Office
  4. A copy of the completed certificate is sent to the Registrar’s Office for inclusion in the student’s academic record

 

* This is a departmental initiative, not a formalized curricular requirement, nor is it something that receives formal recognition on your credential or transcript.

**You cannot use the same course to receive credit in both streams. Dual recognition requires you to complete 10 distinct courses plus History 2335: War in the Modern World. The Chair of History (or designate) will determine which iterations of HIST 4499: Selected Topics in History qualify for recognition in these streams. See course posters for further information regarding 4499s.
