Overview

To understand the past is to be able to place yourself in those contexts, to understand and think critically about the world, to empathize. Our program supports the formation of citizens as whole people. Indeed, this could be taken as the summation of our role. Learning in our department provides skills and a critically-informed perspective on society at large that is essential for an active and involved life in the twenty-first century.​​

Our faculty study and teach a variety of fields in North American, European and World History. We have expertise in Canadian political and social history, modern and early modern European and British history, the Middle Ages, the colonial and antebellum United States, the Second World War and its aftermath, the history of genocide and war crimes trials, Russian/Soviet history, 20th century International history, and more!

Our students attend two hours of lecture and one hour of seminar per week. During the small weekly seminars students critically discuss the course material which includes historical documents. The seminar instructors also offer skills training to help students master university-level essay writing. The seminars are designed to help students get comfortable with expressing their ideas.
