400 Level Courses

These upper-division courses are primarily for undergraduates but enroll graduate students as well. 400-level courses (for undergraduates) generally meet concurrently with 500-level courses (for graduate students). The 500-level versions entail more rigorous work and/or additional class meetings. Note that HIST 407/507s are research seminars whereas the others on this list are standard lecture-and-discussion courses.

NOTES: (1) Sample syllabi, hyperlinked in the list below, should be considered non-binding. (2) Courses offered in other departments appear at the end of the list.
