Fall Courses in History - Method of Course Delivery


As a result of the Covid-19 crisis, the Department of History will be offering no in-person classes in the Fall term. Instead, when you go to register in our courses, you will see two options.


    • Online courses. All elements of these courses will be offered online without any fixed meeting time. You can do them at the time of your choosing (Asynchronously).
    • Remote courses. These courses will be delivered in real time via Zoom or other videoconferencing platform at the times indicated in the York Courses website (Synchronously):  https://w2prod.sis.yorku.ca/Apps/WebObjects/cdm. Some of these courses will have both real-time and non-real-time components. All real-time components will also be recorded and made available to students who could not attend. For more details, be sure to check our Current Course Information page: https://history.laps.yorku.ca/courses/course-information/

The status of Winter term courses has not yet been finalized. Courses for which a meeting time is indicated may meet in person if circumstances permit.

If you have any questions, write to Prof. Adrian Shubert, the Undergraduate Program Director: dushist@yorku.ca.

Please see below for more information about fall courses and how each course will be taught.  We will continuously update this site with the methods of delivery for other History courses as details become available.
