History Programs

The Department of History offers a variety of degree options. Students may take a three-year program with a Major in History (which requires a minimum of five History courses) or a four-year Honours degree in History (which requires a minimum of ten History courses). There are also a number of combined Honours programs, such as History and English, History and Philosophy, and History and Political Science. Students may also combine a Major in History with an Honours degree in Outdoor Recreation, Parks, and Tourism.

Many history courses are offered in alternate years only and, in order to include them in a program, students may be advised to deviate from the normal sequence (taking a fourth year course in third year, for example). Students desirous of including specific courses should therefore consult the Department Chair.

Students are also advised of the interdisciplinary minor concentrations in Northern Studies and Women's Studies.

Students thinking of majoring in history might consider combining the offerings of the history department with courses offered by other departments. For example, a student could combine the study of the history of a region and period with related courses on literature, culture, art, philosophy, geography, political science or some other discipline. A double major or combined honours program allows students to develop a more specialized knowledge of history and can make for a more rewarding university experience.
