- The Master of Arts degree in History combines an intensive project of research with an orientation to contemporary modes of historical interpretation.
- A program attentive to developing the craft of historical research, writing and analysis, the graduate program prepares students equally for continuing with academic studies at the doctoral level and for a variety of other careers where the knowledge and skills of the historian are valued.
- The Master of Arts in History program is a small program, providing a supportive atmosphere for our students, who have achieved many successes such as winning provincial and national scholarships; acceptance of revised versions of major papers in scholarly journals and parts of major papers published in e-journals; as well as presenting at various lecture series and conferences.
- Many of our graduates have also had success outside the academic world as lawyers, librarians, museum curators, financial advisors, civil servants and even as employees of this university.
