Our Master of Arts (MA) in History program is part of the Tri-University Graduate Program in History, a partnership of Laurier, the University of Waterloo and the University of Guelph. The integration of history departments makes this program one of the biggest graduate history programs in Canada, while retaining the small classes and supportive professor-student relationship associated with History at Laurier.
We are deeply committed to teaching and to your scholarly development. You’ll take part in great discussions with faculty and your colleagues in seminars designed for MA students only. The classes you will attend will never have more than 12 students.
You’ll receive personal attention from active researchers. The close student-professor relationship is important to us. Our dedicated faculty can support you in the widest possible range of research interests and can help you fulfil your academic and professional objectives.
