What do I need to do to be accepted into the History Majors Program?

To qualify for the Majors or Honours program in History

  • you need 12 credits of lower-division History taken during your first and second years,
    • including 6 credits of courses at the 200-level.

There are no specific course prerequisites for upper-division history courses. History credits transferred from other institutions also meet the requirements for the Major. UBC Arts One, IB, and AP students may receive 6 lower-division history credits.

In order to apply for a Major you will need to download the Advising Form, complete it, and see a History Department Advisor in person to get it approved.

The Advisors are Dr. Arlene Sindelar, and Mr. Hart Caplan.

For full details on advising and advisors, please follow the Advising page.
