About

History has been defined as the "memory of human group experience" because it brings the student into contact with the whole range of human effort and achievement. Its objective is to recreate the past from the evidence left to us, and to try to explain how and why human beings spoke, acted, and thought as they did in the past.

History professors at University of Prince Edward Island are award-winning educators and researchers with a wide variety of historical interests. Our course offerings include studies ranging from the local history of PEI to the history of global exploration; from Antiquity and the Middle Ages to the present; and themes encompassing the impact of wars and revolutions on past societies, the history of science and medicine, and the history of gender relations. Our Public History course provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable internship experience in government, heritage and cultural workplaces.
