About 2020-2021

Dear History students,

The Department of History is teaching its courses remotely this year. Formats vary and include both synchronous (live lectures and discussions, for example) and asynchronous components.  So whether you have decided to move back to Guelph or not, we continue to make sure you are able to keep up with your degree.  Please check our course outline webpage to learn more about the content and format of each HIST course.  We look forward to seeing you again on campus as soon as it is safe to do so. That access will be determined by Provincial Government guidelines through the local Public Health Department and by protocols developed within this university, all of which prioritize safety.

We continue to work hard to create a remote experience that presents intellectual challenges and use technology to create accessible, interactive, and exciting content.
