Overview

The study of History at Concordia University is not only about the past, it is also about the present and the future. A student in this program will learn to think critically about change over time and how contemporary society has been shaped by all those who came before. The program stresses both global and community education. The program offers students the global knowledge they will need to compete in the 21st century. At the same time, students can experience and witness local history first-hand. The History major will allow students to develop skills in both research and content knowledge. The program offers courses that focus on the entire globe. Students get a mix of political, social, economic, and diplomatic history. The major requires a senior research project, where students do an original research paper, as well as a senior readings course. The remaining classes are electives, with the stipulation that at least one of those courses has a global focus. History majors are also required to do an internship, which helps them prepare for their careers and the job market.

Career Potential

You’ll also have real opportunities beyond the classroom with travel, service-learning, History Club activities and internship experiences. And because we design our history program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant major if you’re considering a career in research, teaching, public relations, the travel industry, library science, politics, public policy, law, journalism, advertising, archives and museums and related professions.
