2000-level courses, 2020-21 – more details to be added as they become available

2000-level courses are generally reserved for students in the second year and beyond. Students beginning their first year at Carleton may take History courses with numbers at both the 1000 and 2000 levels. However, 1000-level courses are recommended for first-year students because they are designed to ease the transition to university work. 2000-level courses expect more in the way of writing and study skills, but they are suitable for entering students with good preparation or a specialized interest in the area of the course. 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 contact the Undergraduate Administrator, Tanya Schwartz, if you require assistance.

* 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.
