Historians work with these sources to try to understand the past on its own terms, to learn more about the assumptions, ideas, ambitions, hopes and fears of people living in medieval England or nineteenth-century Canada, Ming China or colonial America. In this History module at Western University - Canada you will have the opportunity to explore all these societies, and many more. As you develop your own interests you will also be able to focus on a particular period or place, or to focus on themes such as the environment, medicine, technology, and gender.

We are all products of history, both individually and as members of our nations, cultures, or religions. Learn more about the people, ideas, and events in the past which have shaped our present, and which will continue to shape our future.
