This is the home page for H334, a new course in African-American History at UBC. In the past, African-American History was taught as a year-long, 6-credit course (H332). But the study of the African-American past has been divided into two, 3-credit courses. H334 covers the four centuries from 1450 to 1850; H335 examines the period from 1850 to the present. H334 will be offered in September 2017; H335 will be offered in January 2018.
