The historical studies degree at Grenfell culminates with HIST 4950, an
independent project. In this course, 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 independent project allows the student to delve into areas of history that interests or excites him or her that perhaps were only touched on - or not covered at all - in other courses.
