Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

Master of Arts (MA)
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)


The History Department offers both Masters and Doctoral degree programs in a range of geographical and thematic areas of research. Small enough to offer individualized attention and large enough to be known internationally, their programs are characterized by a vibrant intellectual environment. Graduate students participate in the weekly "grad/fac" seminar series and organise an annual graduate history conference.
