Course Outlines

Course descriptions in the University Calendar are available online here

The University Calendar is also available on the UofC website from 2003 to the present. 

Many departments have made their course outlines available on their websites -- check there before contacting 

Copies of course outlines are available in the University Archives holdings as are paper copies of the University Calendar.

NOTE that the University Archives does not hold every course outline for every University course.    
For special topic/seminar courses, the Archives does not hold the majority of course outlines.  Clients should access the course description from the UofC Calendar for the relevant academic year which provides a brief description confirming this is an individualized special topic/seminar course.

To request copies of course outlines that are not available on departmental websites, contact us at with the following information:

  • the course name, number and section (if applicable)
  • the course instructor
  • the term you were enrolled in the course

Duplication fees will be charged for copies of course descriptions and outlines.
