To this end, the programme in history is designed to meet the specific needs of two types of students; those who major in history and those taking degrees in other departments who have an interest in the discipline.

All students pursuing a degree in History at the Royal Military College of Canada are required to complete the core curriculum. Students are not normally allowed to register for 300 or 400 level course without having completed one junior course.

All the HIE400-level courses are designed as seminar courses. If enrolment in one of these exceeds 18, priority will be given to those students who require them to fulfill mandatory degree requirements. Authority to authorize exceeding this cap rests with the head of the history department.
