Cross-listed Courses

All of the courses on the list below can be used to satisfy the cross-listed electives requirement for BHPC Master’s students, including courses outside the student’s home unit.

There may be eligible elective courses in participating BHPC programs that aren’t yet cross-listed here. Students who wish to count any as-yet unlisted courses toward their BHPC electives requirement should email the Program Co-ordinator with details of the course in question; eligible courses will be added to the list below. Courses from graduate units which aren’t part of BHPC may also be considered, provided those courses have a demonstrable connection to the study of book history.

Please note that at the time of posting, this information is provisional in the case of some units, and not yet available in the case of others (in which case the previous year’s offerings are still displayed). The inclusion of any given course in this list does not guarantee its availability to students outside the unit concerned.
