Note: the Historical Studies program unit has been developing new courses that cover both Early and Later Western History and thus appear in both categories (i.e., 3030 and 3551). These courses that are listed in both Early and Later Western History categories cannot be double-counted for both categories.
The historical studies degree at Grenfell culminates with the Senior Project, of which there are two options: i) HIST 4950 Independent Project; or ii) HIST 4951 and 4952 Advanced Research Essay I and II. In either option, the student brings together all of his or her learning to write an essay on any topic of his or her choice, providing that a faculty member is available to supervise it. The senior project allows the student to delve into areas of history of interest to the student that perhaps were only touched on - or not covered at all - in other courses.
