Graduate Courses, 2020-2021 – more details to be added as they become available

Since a number of graduate courses are negotiated with individual instructors according to student needs, many of them are not listed as part of the regular course schedule. Therefore, directed studies, reading courses, and courses related to the thesis-writing stage will not be listed below, but students are encouraged to consult the graduate calendar for the full range of courses we offer. Ph.D. students in particular are encouraged to discuss course options with their supervisor or the graduate supervisor. Note that the public history graduate courses are available to all interested graduate students, and are not restricted solely to those in the public history stream. Following precautions for Covid-19, all Fall semester and Full-Year courses are being offered online. Scheduled times (where applicable) will be available in Carleton Central. Please check Carleton Central regularly for any changes.

Please note that we no longer cross-list graduate courses with fourth-year seminars.

Disclaimer: this list of courses is drawn up several months in advance and is subject to change.

* Online Course Descriptions:

  • Synchronous Courses
    A real-time, online course in which the instructor and students meet via web conferencing tools, at scheduled days and times. Students must be available at scheduled class times, within the structure, guidelines, and deadlines provided by the instructor. Additional activities and assignments will be made available via the course page for completion outside of class time. These courses require reliable, high-speed internet access, a computer with a camera and a microphone or a headset with a microphone.
  • Asynchronous Courses
    An online course in which there are no live, scheduled meetings. Students will access materials and complete activities available through the course page on their own time, within the structure, guidelines, and deadlines provided by the instructor. These courses require high-speed Internet access and a computer.
  • Courses Combining Synchronous and Asynchronous
    An online course in which there is a mixture of synchronous meetings and asynchronous activities. Students must be available at scheduled class times and be prepared to meet together for some of that time via web conferencing tools. The specific live meeting times will be provided by the instructor in the course outline. Asynchronous activities and assignments will be made available via the course page for completion outside of scheduled class time, within the structure, guidelines, and deadlines provided by the instructor. These courses require reliable high-speed Internet access and a computer with a camera and a microphone or a headset with a microphone.
