Not every course is given every year. For details of current offerings, consult the departmental website at www.ahva.ubc.ca. Students wishing to take fourth-year seminars should normally have had a closely related third-year course and are advised to check with the instructor in this regard. Credit will be given to either the current ARTH listing or its former FINA equivalent.
