Fall 2020 History 600 descriptions are available here.
How Do I Obtain Authorization to Take History 600? Review the list of seminars posted online, make a choice, and then contact the professor using the method they have indicated next to their History 600 topic description.Some may require you to complete a brief questionnaire, others may want to meet with you in-person. Many request that you contact them via email. In your emails to instructors, make sure to include your grade level, major(s), as well as a brief summary of why you’re interested in their particular topic. Once a professor has accepted you into their seminar, they will contact the undergraduate program, who will then authorize you to register (on or after your scheduled registration time).
If you obtain permission to enroll in a seminar prior to your enrollment appointment, you will receive an email from Isaac containing enrollment instructions a few days prior to this date. If you obtain permission after senior enrollment has begun, you will receive instructions as you are admitted. You MUST REGISTER ONLINE at your designated registration time and complete your registration no later than the date Isaac indicates in his email, otherwise you will be unable to enroll in the class! **Please note that seminars fill up quickly, so choose a 600 seminar and contact the professor as soon as possible, especially if you are graduating in Fall 2020.
As sections close, this information will be posted on the History 600 Seminar page — Course Guide is not an accurate source of information about enrollment levels or availability. Priority will be given to graduating seniors.
If you are studying abroad, the History 600 Authorization process is essentially the same as above, however, you will need to contact your perspective professor by email. Please let them know you are currently studying abroad and unavailable to meet face-to-face. If you run into any problems please contact Scott Burkhardt for assistance.
