Undergraduate Seminars 

Students, some seminars are open to all, while some require permission from the instructor.  Some also require our departmental application (below).

Before registering, please consult our seminar listings which include relevant permission procedures: 

2019 History Seminars with Permission Requirements

IMPORTANT: If you are applying for a seminar that requires permission or the departmental application, first register for the course to which you are applying, then email the application (below) directly to the instructor of the course to which you are applying. 

Email Subject Line must be “SEMINAR APPLICATION (Course Prefix, e.g. HIST UN or HIST GU, 4 Digit Number, and Title)”. 

Applications sent without this subject line, or sent to anyone other than the instructor, may not be considered.  

The application can be found here: Spring 2019 Seminar Application

NOTE: The Directory of Classes and Virgil may take longer to reflect which seminars require permission.  Please see 2019 History Seminars with Permission Requirements (above) for a list of Spring 2019 History Department Seminars and whether they require permission.  For seminars that originate in other departments, please contact the department in question. 

Students who intend to write a senior thesis are strongly encouraged to enroll in a seminar for which they will write a substantial research paper during their junior year. Students should confirm with the seminar instructor that they will be asked to write a research paper. Please see the Undergraduate Handbook for more information on seminars and thesis requirements.
